LOS ANGELES (AP) — Federal authorities say they believe a former Los Angeles International Airport security screener acted alone and there wasn't a larger plot when he allegedly made threats that closed some airport terminals.

FBI Special Agent in Charge David Bowdich said Thursday investigators haven't found any explosives or weapons belonging to 29-year-old Nna Alpha Onuoha (ahn-oo-OH'-hah).

Onuoha has been charged with making threats after quitting his job with the Transportation Security Administration on Tuesday.

A package he allegedly left at the airport contained a letter expressing disdain for the United States.

Authorities say Onuoha told investigators he had no intent to carry out any violence.
