A law enforcement official briefed on the investigation who wasn't authorized to speak publicly says Bennett allegedly took the dry ice from a plane and placed it in two locations Sunday night.

Police had previously said they didn't believe the explosions were an act of terror but could be the work of a disgruntled employee.

No one was injured in either incident.
