A 25-year-old Juneau man has been arrested and charged with multiple felonies for stealing firearms and other goods tied to out-the-road burglaries.
Tuesday night, a burglary victim reported seeing some of her stuff at a mobile home near mile 26 of Glacier Highway, a couple of miles away from her residence. Police checked out the motor home, detained resident Albert Martin Mazon and began working the scene.
“They’re looking at stuff and these things, property crimes, can take a long time to work, even at the scene,” said Juneau police Lt. Kris Sell.
Police arrested Mazon at about 3 a.m.
A firefighter who reported tools and equipment stolen from his truck around mile 15 in mid-July also identified some of his stolen goods.
“There are burglaries at other places, and at least one car rifling, and now we’re also looking at a potential vehicle theft,” Sell said. “So those are different events, though they’re concentrated out the road.”
Online court records show Mazon was arraigned Wednesday on a misdemeanor larceny charge and five felony charges:
- three for stolen firearms or explosives, likely for three stolen handguns police have been seeking,
- a burglary,
- and a theft for something valued between $750 and $25,000.
Court records also show Mazon was cited for driving with an invalid license on Tuesday.
