Rubbish bins worth 300, 000 set on fire – got thirsty and smashed greenhouse
He has also thrown stones at a store’s security camera and smashed the large window in the Hälsoträdgården, spat at police officers and assaulted a man.
The 38-year-old man has previously been sentenced to six and a half years in prison for attempted murder, assault, aggravated theft, vandalism and threatening an official.
He was released on parole in June 2019 with a probationary period until May 30, 2021.
In autumn 2021, he was arrested on suspicion of the fires set near the old hospital area/Östermalm's park, but six months later the suspicions against him were dismissed. Prior to that, he was investigated as a suspect in several fires that took place in Kristianstad. Among other things, for having set fire to a midsummer pole in Tivoli Park.
A burst of anger and a sense of injustice, sometimes under the influence of drugs, seem to have triggered the man to reckless deeds. Like when he got thirsty and there was no water in the fountain in the Hälsoträdgården.
In addition to vandalising the Hälsoträdgården, the man has also been convicted of setting fire to large rubbish bins in Näsby – bins that had a total value of almost 300,000 crowns.
In addition to setting the huge bin fire, the most serious crime according to the courts is the 38-year-old’s assault on a man at the train station in Kristianstad. When the man was lying down, the 38-year-old allegedly kicked him.
The man is also convicted of various crimes related to drugs, illegal threats and violent resistance when resisting arrest where he spat on police officers and sat down to prevent them from taking him into custody.
He is also convicted of having pulled the fire alarm inside Galleria Boulevard so that the emergency services were called out unnecessarily.
The sentence for the man is a total of nine months in prison.
