The Los Angeles Police Department released new information Tuesday about the dry ice bombs discovered over the weekend at Los Angeles International Airport.

The counterterrorism unit for the LAPD said that four bombs were found on Sunday and Monday in secure employee-only areas of the airport, including in an aircraft area at Tom Bradley International terminal and an employee bathroom at Terminal 2.

The device discovered by an airport employee on Monday near Gate 148 "had not detonated," according to the LAPD.

A suspected motive for the dry ice bombs has not yet been released by the LAPD.  No one has been injured in any of the explosions.

The FBI is assisting the LAPD in the investigation.
