Surrey man facing several charges after arrest by North Vancouver RCMP
North Vancouver RCMP arrested a Surrey resident Tuesday after police believe he came to an East Keith residence intent on robbing it.
Nicholas Mazzone was arrested on Tuesday afternoon after a resident in the area informed police of a suspicious vehicle parked outside their home.
North Vancouver RCMP officers say they were quick to arrive and upon searching the suspect’s vehicle, police found stolen property, including jewellery and credit cards, worth thousands of dollars.
Police believe the 42-year-old man in the car had been involved in a vehicle break-in on West 15th street a day before. He had stolen a purse, credit cards, jewellery, a wallet and house keys from the car.
With the keys of the house in his possession, the suspect then allegedly headed to the residence.

The victim phoned police, who already had the suspect’s image from security cameras at a store where he had used the stolen credit card.
The Surrey resident is charged with several counts including stealing property worth over $5,000, possession of stolen property and use of stolen credit cards.
Mazzone currently remains in police custody. He will appear in court for a hearing on Jan. 29.
