Three Chilliwack prolific offenders caught in the act of home invasion

Jeffrey Kizmann, Robert Mar and Robert Callender arrested inside Hazel Street house on Nov. 10

Prolific offender Jeffrey Kizmann was arrested alongside Robert Callender and Robert Mar after a Chilliwack home invasion on Nov. 10.

Three well-known prolific offenders were arrested Nov. 10 caught in the act of a home invasion downtown Chilliwack.

Jeffrey Michael Kizmann (pictured above), Robert Patrick Callender (pictured at left) and Robert Edward Mar each face one charge of break and enter, and Kizmann and Callender each face one count of use of an imitation firearm while committing an indictable offence.

On Nov. 10, shortly before midnight, Chilliwack RCMP received a report of three men wearing masks and possibly armed entering a residence in the 9200-block of Hazel Street.

General Duty officers supported by the Lower Mainland Integrated Police Dog Section immediately arrived at the address where police quickly took the suspects into custody. Evidence linking the suspects to the break and enter was seized by police inside the home.

RCMP investigators believe the incident was targeted.

“The timely response of police resources to the 911 call is responsible for the apprehension of the three suspects,” Chilliwack RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Mike Rail said in a press release. “Fortunately none of the residents in the house were injured during the break and enter.”

All three men remain in custody and their next appearance in Chilliwack court is Dec. 6 via video from the Surrey Pretrial Centre.

All three men are well-known to police with extensive criminal records.

Kizmann, 34, was most recently in the news a year ago convicted of mail theft. He spent 495 days in pretrial custody after stealing credit cards from mailboxes in Coquitlam. He has an extensive record, mostly for property crimes and served a four-month sentence for break and enter in 2013, as well as 60 days for flight from a peace officer.

Mar was in the news after he was arrested in 2014 after a knife-point robbery when he ran his bicycle into a police cruiser.

The home invasion is not his only file currently before the courts. The 34-year-old also faces six charges for a July 5 incident that include: resisting a peace officer, impersonation with intent to avoid arrest, trespassing at night, possession of stolen property under $5,000, possessing break-in instruments and possession of a controlled substance.

He also faces a breach of probation charged from Sept. 2015 stemming from a conviction for using a forged document in 2013.
