Suspect Arrested In Prince George's For Movie Theater 'Bottle Bombs'

Prince George's County fire officials say a 20-year-old man from Bowie has been arrested in connection with a dangerous prank that led to the evacuation of a movie theater in Largo.

Fire officials say Manuel Joyner also is a suspect in several similar incidents.

Over the past month, several theaters in northern Virginia have been evacuated because of loud popping sounds resembling explosions.

Authorities say someone used a device described as a "bottle bomb,'' in which baking soda and vinegar or other materials are placed inside a plastic bottle, causing it to pop.

Joyner was arrested Saturday. He's been charged with a felony in the Largo incident, which occurred May 24.
