Police have arrested a Disneyland employee on suspicion of placing a so-called dry ice bomb in a trash can at the California theme park.

Anaheim police Sgt. Bob Dunn said Wednesday that detectives arrested 22-year-old Christian Barnes of Long Beach for investigation of possessing a destructive device.

Police say the small explosion Tuesday in Mickey's Toontown was caused by dry ice placed inside a bottle and left in a trash can. No one was injured, according to The Associated Press.

Dunn says Barnes works as an outdoor vendor at Disneyland and is being held on $1 million bail.

Resort spokeswoman Suzi Brown did not immediately return a call for comment on the arrest.

This isn't the first time a suspicious device has been found in a Disney amusement park trash can.

In early January, a custodian at Disney World in Orlando found three hollowed-out grenades while emptying a trash can in the downtown area of the amusement park.

The harmless empty casings were likely used at some point in military training exercises, according to Jeff Williamson, spokesman for the Orange County Sheriff's Office.

Police have yet to be able to explain how or why the grenade casings wound up in the trash can.
