Christian Barnes, 22, was booked on suspicion of possession of a destructive device and is being held in lieu of $1-million bail. The explosion Tuesday forced the evacuation of Toontown.

A 22-year-old Disneyland employee was arrested on suspicion of setting off a so-called dry ice bomb in the Toontown section of the park, forcing the child-friendly area to be evacuated, 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 $1-million bail.

The explosion in a trash can was reported Tuesday evening and forced the evacuation of Toontown for two hours while police investigators and the Orange County Sheriff’s Department’s bomb squad moved through the amusement park. No one was injured, and there were no reports of damage, but the explosion caused some brief chaos in a Disneyland location that features Roger Rabbit’s Car Toon Spin and other attractions aimed at youngsters.

Anaheim police initially examined the possibility that the device was related to other incidents in recent months involving dry ice explosions in the city. But after gathering evidence and interviewing park patrons and employees — as well as reviewing security surveillance video — Barnes emerged as the suspect.
