A serial arsonist with a documented history of setting fires in Hennepin County and who was once deemed by the court to be a “danger to public safety” has received a stayed sentence from a Hennepin County judge on his most recent, fifth, arson conviction in July. Alpha News reported in May that Alan Theodore Enger had been charged with second-degree arson after intentionally setting a vehicle on fire in north Minneapolis. When fire investigators arrived at the fire scene on May 7, they found the victim arguing with Enger about why he had started the victim’s vehicle on fire. Enger stated “because that is what you get when you f*ck with me.” When officers took Enger into custody he kept “referring to himself as an arsonist,” the criminal complaint said.
