A 22-year-old Disneyland employee has been arrested in connection with the detonation of a so-called dry ice bomb in the park’s Toontown, Anaheim police said Wednesday.

Long Beach resident Christian Barnes, an outdoor vending “cast member,” was booked on suspicion of possession of a destructive device and is being held in lieu of bail of $1 million.

The explosion in a trash can on Tuesday evening forced the evacuation of Toontown. No one was injured, but the explosion caused some brief chaos in a portion of Disneyland popular with young children.

“Barnes is cooperating with investigators and has indicated this is an isolated incident with unanticipated impacts,” Anaheim police Sgt. Bob Dunn said.
