LOS ANGELES (AP) - The FBI says a security screener at Los Angeles International Airport has been taken into custody after quitting his job and making threats that led officials to clear and search airport terminals.
Twenty-nine-year-old Nna Alpha Onuoha was arrested shortly before midnight Tuesday east of Los Angeles in Riverside, and he remained in custody on suspicion of making threats pending additional investigation.
The FBI says authorities searched Onuoha's minivan Wednesday morning as part of the investigation.
A search of Onuoha's apartment in Inglewood near LAX turned up a note containing unspecified threats that cited Wednesday's Sept. 11 anniversary. Additional details of the contents of the letter were not immediately provided.
The FBI said no harmful materials were found at the airport or the man's apartment.
