A man charged with allegedly setting dry ice bombs at Los Angeles International Airport has been released on his own recognizance.

District attorney's office spokeswoman Jane Robison says 28-year-old Dicarlo Bennett was released Monday by Superior Court Judge James Dabney without having to post bail.

Bennett, an employee for the ground handling company Servisair, was arrested and pleaded not guilty to two counts of possessing a destructive device in a public place. He was held on $1 million bail.

Bennett's supervisor, 41-year-old Miguel Angel Iniguez of Inglewood, also pleaded not guilty to a similar charge. He also has been released.

Prosecutors say the two men made three dry ice bombs near airport terminals in October, but only two of them exploded. No one was injured.

They are due back in court Dec. 10.
