A Disneyland employee has been charged with possessing a destructive device, two days after a small explosion in a rubbish bin prompted the evacuation of the Mickey's Toontown section of the Walt Disney Co California theme park, prosecutors said.

Christian Barnes, 22, faces up to six years in prison if he is convicted.
