Rocklin Man Arrested After Large Explosion Rocks Neighborhood

ROCKLIN (CBS13) – A Placer County man is under arrest after an explosion rocked a Rocklin neighborhood Sunday night.

Police were called to the 5200 block of Birdie Court just after 5:00 Sunday evening after getting several calls of an explosion.

Officers arrived to find that a large blast had happened in the backyard of a home on Birdie Court.  The explosion was so large it sent debris to the front of the home and caused a small fire which a neighbor put out.

A Roseville Fire Department Hazmat Team member and a Roseville Police Department Explosives officer helped Rocklin Police and Rocklin Fire Fighters secure the home after numerous chemicals and powders were found at the home.

After investigating, officers arrested 25-year-old Ryan Linn.  He was booked into the Placer County Jail for possession of a destructive device and unlawful explosion of a destructive device.

  • Me

    The guy went out with a bang.

  • Brock Landers

    Wow, look at that mugshot, he sure must get the ladies, heh heh

    • Sickened

      He actually does have a girlfriend (a pretty attractive one actually) but based on your willingness to jump to conclusions I have to wonder if you have a significant other or if making fun of others is how you deal with your own pathetic misery.

  • Say what?

    Looser? You mean “loser”… like someone that berates another but can’t spell?

  • CA realist

    He’s 25 years old, playing with explosions? What is this guy doing with his life?
    Oh yeah, he probably still lives with his parents in an unnecessarily huge house in rocklin. That’s usually the case. Cause I know most 25 year olds cannot afford to buy a home in rocklin, unless they’re still living with mommy and daddy.

    • Sickened

      He is working like the rest of us. By the way the definition of a realist isn’t someone who attacks people they know nothing about. Maybe you should look up big words before you attempt to use them, you’re actually closer to a bully. Oh and by the way there are many successful 25 year olds who do own their own homes in Rocklin, Roseville, and Granite Bay for that matter. Is your jealousy over lacking the necessary intelligence to build explosive devices the reason you feel the need to be so rude?

  • Gator

    He’s got “Meth Mouth” sure sign of a loser!

    • Sickened

      Thats funny because he doesn’t do meth he has an acne problem like a large portion of the population. So someone who jumps to conclusions like ‘he’s got ‘meth mouth” what does that make you? Grow up and stop acting like a child.

  • Concerned Mother

    Wow, that is literally right by my house. I didn’t hear anything yesterday though and we were outside BBQing at that time. Hope the stupid kid gets jail time! Stupid with a capitol S!

    • Coworker

      Capital, spell check yourself before you call someone stupid and thank you for being a steretypical rocklin resident

      • Coworker

        Stereotypical. Gotta love typing on a phone

  • Concerned

    You know??? The kid made a mistake. Like you never made any mistakes in your life. Yes, it was a stupid move, a very stupid move, and he will pay for that mistake. But, give the kid a break. All of the comments, about his pimples, and “he must sure get the ladies, he,he,he” were uncalled for. You all are the losers here. Very mature….NOT….

    The kid obviously had some issues that need to be addressed, and I hope his parents see to it that he gets the attention that he needs right now.

    This is getting to be a very cold world. To stay on topic, I hope that you all take a good look at yourselves in the mirror. I bet there is at least one thing that you have done in your life that you are ashamed of. And if you have not done anything to be ashamed of, then I guess you will be one of God’s Saints.

    So, the next time you have a yen to leave stupid, malicious comments, think….. Think about what you did…. And think about the stupid, hurtful comments that people would leave about you, and how it would make you feel.

    COMPASSION……………. Where has it all gone???????????

  • IntrinsicMotivator

    He was a bright kid. At 17, he had one of the sharpest intellects you could have ever come across, an awkward fit in high school, but far from a loser The Meth and leaching off mom and dad assertions aren’t accurate either. He never really was that kind; an angry kid, definitely, but not useless. I wish him and his parents the best possible outcome and hope that this might be the wake-up call that turns his life in a more productive direction.

    • Allan

      So does he have a job? Who does he work for?
      Is he attending college?
      I’d imagine at 25 he should be doing…something.

      • Coworker

        Yes he has a job. He works in tech support. I cannot say which company he works for but suffice to say yes… He has a job and I thought was working on going back to school too

  • fargo john

    I bet he was cookin a great batch, twekers all over placer co. are in tears. Love Rocklin home of the Worlds most Crocked cops.

  • Coworker

    First of all I just want say that he is no idiot, I work with this guy and he is very intelligent. He has had his issues to deal with and he continues to deal with them. He is not a dealer and all of you saying he must be horrid with women honestly and surprisingly are wrong. Last I checked he had a girlfriend and she wasn’t bad looking either. He’s an idiot for this and he’ll pay for it but he built all of that from scratch. Most of u idiots can hardly google explosives much less create them. Don’t be idiots. Let the guy learn from his mistakes. At least nobody was killed and there wasn’t much damage. You guys should just stop being drama queens

  • Coworker

    This happened because of all the Rocklin/Roseville idiots who think they are so much better than everyone else. I work with him and its disgusting how people around here treat others. Grow up and start treating people with a little dignity. The majority of the above comments prove my point.
