Subject: Suspect Arrested in Dry Ice Incident at Disneyland

Late on May 28, 2013, Anaheim Police Detectives identified and arrested a Disneyland outdoor vending cast member, Christian Barnes, 22, of Long Beach in connection with this incident. He was booked at the Anaheim Police Department on suspicion of possessing a destructive device (18740 CPC) and he is being held on one million dollars bail.

Barnes is cooperating with investigators and has indicated this is an isolated incident with unanticipated impacts.

On May 28, 2013 before 5:30PM, Anaheim Police responded to reports  of people hearing a small bang in a trash can within Toon Town at
Disneyland. When officers arrived, they were directed to a trash can and found remnants of a water bottle, which is indicative of a dry ice
explosion. They also found there were no injuries or damage as a result and the rest of the resort remained in full operation. Disney guests were
ushered out of Toon Town while the Orange County Sheriff’s Bomb Squad was called to assist with the investigation, per established protocol.

Guests returned to Toon Town at 7:30 PM.
