Sentencing for Brooklyn Park Salvation Army arson postponed

A Hennepin County judge will sentence a man who pleaded guilty to setting a Brooklyn Park Salvation Army on fire in November.

Jack Heinrich, 33, was scheduled to be sentenced Tuesday morning for second-degree arson of a building valued at $1,000 or more or after the Salvation Army’s worship and service center was broken into, vandalized and burned.

His new sentencing date has been set for the morning of Jan. 25.

Heinrich was also charged with second-degree burglary of a government, religious, historic or school building and one count of first-degree damage to property. There are no online court documents showing if those charges have been dismissed.

Surveillance footage showed Heinrich throw a flower pot through a window and then enter the building, according to the criminal complaint.

The Salvation Army says footage shows Heinrich then set a pile of winter coats that were set to donated on fire, causing significant fire and smoke damage to the building.

The damage to the Salvation Army is expected to cost at least $100,000.
