Dry ice bomber settles case
January 17, 2014, 05:00 AM

Richard Santos

A 33-year-old Redwood City man who left a one-liter dry ice bomb in the middle of a street on Fourth of July and later fought with responding officers pleaded no contest to possessing an explosive device and resisting arrest.

In return, Richard Dean Santos Jr. was immediately sentenced to 90 days jail followed by three years supervised probation. He surrenders to jail March 1.

Redwood City police arrested Santos late July 4 after responding to reports of a suspicious bottle in he middle of the 400 block of Ruby Street. Witnesses pointed police to a house where the suspect entered and found Santos who they reported was immediately hostile and possessed a methamphetamine smoking pipe.

The bottle led police to call the bomb squad who confirmed it as a dry ice device and detonated it in place.

Santos is free from custody on a $25,000 bail bond.
