FBI: Ex-TSA worker arrest

LOS ANGELES - Authorities are searching a vehicle connected to the arrest of a security screener who allegedly made threats after quitting his job at Los Angeles International Airport.

FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller said Wednesday's search of the minivan in a church parking lot east of Los Angeles in Riverside is part of the investigation into the 29-year-old screener's arrest.

KABC-TV news helicopter showed a bomb squad robot conducting a search in and around the van.

The screener was arrested late Tuesday.

The FBI says a search of the man's apartment near LAX turned up a note containing unspecified threats that cited the Sept. 11 anniversary.

No harmful materials were found at the airport or the man's apartment.
