Suspect Accused In Dry-Ice Bombings At Disneyland Released From Custody
FULLERTON (AP) — A Disneyland worker charged in connection with the explosion of two dry-ice bombs at the theme park has been ordered released from custody.
Deputy District Attorney Andrew Katz says an Orange County judge on Thursday ordered 22-year-old Christian Barnes released on his own recognizance.
Katz opposed the release over public safety concerns given the lack of information about Barnes.
The order came after the judge had previously lowered Barnes’ bail from $500,000 to $50,000.
Prosecutors say Barnes placed dry ice in two water bottles that exploded last month at Disneyland. No one was injured in the blasts.
Barnes has pleaded not guilty to possession of a destructive device in a public place.
A message was left for Barnes’ attorney Seth Bank. Barnes’ next court date is July 17.
