Quick response helps Chilliwack RCMP thwart home invasion

Police were on the scene within minutes to halt an alleged break-in in the 9200 block of Hazel Street in Chilliwack.

Three men arrested by the RCMP during an alleged home invasion face criminal charges.

Shortly before midnight on Nov. 10, police received a report that three men, wearing masks and possibly armed, were breaking into a residence in the 9200 block of Hazel Street. Officers arrived at the address arrested the suspects.

Evidence linking them to the break and enter was seized by police inside of the residence.

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

Jeffrey Michael Kizmann, 34, and Robert Patrick Callender, 34, both of Chilliwack, each face Criminal Code charges of break and enter to commit an indictable offence and use of an imitation firearm while committing an indictable offence.

Robert Edward Mar, 32, of Abbotsford faces one charge of break and enter to commit an indictable offence.

RCMP investigators believe the incident was targeted and the three men remain in custody pending court appearances in early December.
