disneyland arrest explosion mickeys toontown Disneyland employee arrested for explosion, held on $1M bail

After a small explosion caused a portion of the Disneyland theme park to be evacuated Tuesday (May 28), police have arrested a suspect and it’s surprising. A 22-year-old employee of the park was taken into custody on suspicion of putting a “dry ice bomb” in a garbage can in Mickey’s Toontown.
Christian Barnes was arrested just hours after the blast, according to Anaheim Police Department’s Sgt. Bob Dunn. The Associated Press reports that Barnes, an outdoor vendor at the resort, is being held on $1 million bail and is cooperating with authorities.
A spokesman for the police say they believe the dry ice was inside a water bottle in the trash can to create the explosion. Fragments of the water bottle have been retrieved. Two hours after police were called Tuesday, the Toontown section of the park was reopened.
