    Authorities have arrested a Denver man at a hotel near Los Angeles international airport after a search of a hotel room where he had stayed in Denver yielded several pipe bombs.

    Adam Hayat, 36, was being sought after pipe bombs were found at a hotel that he lived in in the Denver area, according to law-enforcement sources.

    Police did not find any similar materials when he was arrested Thursday at a Holiday Inn LAX. He flew to LA Wednesday, the sources said.

    The U.S. Attorney Office in Denver is preparing a statement.

    Denver police and the FBI are investigating.

    Hayat has no local arrest record, according to the Colorado Bureau of Investigation.

    NBC4 affiliate KUSA in Denver reports that he is a former US Marine.
