Man Arrested for Murder in Pitbull Attack

Los Angeles County authorities announced the arrest of Alex Jackson, 28, at his Littlerock home on suspicion of murder in connection with a deadly pit bull attack in Littlerock. The pit bull attack killed an Antelope Valley jogger Pamela Devitt, 63, who was walking on May 9 when she was attacked by a pack of four pit bulls.
Authorities believe there was evidence that he was aware the dogs were vicious and they have attacked before and he knew of the danger they posed.
A deputy found one of the dogs still attacking the victim when he arrived on scene. The deputy was able to chase the dog away and called paramedics. Devitt died en route to the hospital as a result of blood loss. Coroner’s officials said they found 150 to 200 puncture wounds and sharp force trauma across her body.
Later that same day, homicide investigators seized eight dogs, six pit bulls and two mixed breeds, from Jackson’s home. Four of the dogs were believed to be involved in the attack. What appeared to be blood was found on their coats and muzzles./While investigating the pit bulls at the house, deputies also found a marijuana growing operation.
Jackson faces up to life in prison if convicted, a Los Angeles County district attorney’s spokesman said. Jackson had been booked for murder at the Palmdale Sheriff’s Station, and his bail was set at $1,050,000, according to the release.

Suspect Arrest in Disneyland ToonTown Explosion


English: Sign at the Entrance to Mickey's Toontown

A 22-year-old Disneyland outdoor vending cast member, Christian Barnes, has been arrested in connection with a dry ice explosion in Mickey’s Toontown area. Anaheim police say Barnes, of Long Beach, was taken into custody and booked on suspicion of possessing a destructive device.
A small explosion from an apparent dry ice “bomb” at Disneyland’s Toontown on Tuesday afternoon forced officials to evacuate people from the popular area, law enforcement authorities said.
No injuries were reported from the blast, which rocked the theme park about 5:30 p.m., the Anaheim Police Department said. Toontown, a popular area for families with small children, was reopened about two hours later, police said.
The dry ice appeared to have been placed in a plastic bottle that was left in a trash can and the explosion was confined to the can, police said.
The device appeared similar to other devices that have exploded in Anaheim neighborhoods in recent months, Sgt. Bob Dunn said.
He said police were investigating whether there was any connection between those explosions and the blast at Toontown. Investigators planned to review video surveillance footage and examine Internet postings and social media to try to find out who was responsible, Dunn said.
Disneyland said on its Twitter account that Toontown was evacuated “in an abundance of caution.”
Barnes is being held on $1 million bail. Police say he is cooperating with investigators and has indicared that this was an isolated incident with “unanticipated impacts.” If convicted, Barnes could be responsible for paying for the police response.
