Crime blotter: vigilante parking enforcement
After the fire was extinguished officers spoke with George Omari Nyagaka. The 28-year-old Brooklyn Park resident allegedly told police that he had set the car on fire because it had been parked for too long in front of his house. He further claimed that the owner of the vehicle practiced witchcraft and was trying to harm him by leaving the car in front of his house.
Nyagaka is charged with one count of second degree arson.
