Tarrytown Detectives reported the arrest of a Mount Vernon man with a "lengthy record" for the break in and burglary of the Tappan Zee Stationery store in October.

The man had appeared in Harrison court when Tarrytown police arrested him on three felony charges related to the robbery here. 

Carl K. Spasoff, 44, was arraigned and taken to Westchester County Jail with a return court date.

He was charged with burglary in the third, a D-felony, criminal mischief in the second, a D-felony, and criminal mischief in the third, an F-felony. 

He had allegedly made away with $850 cash on Oct. 23, 2013 after entering the store in the Bridge Plaza by breaking the glass door and the plate glass window. Police originally reported the loss of $400 but later found it be twice that.

Lt. Wiliam Herguth had detective David Kapica recovered blood at the scene that resulted in a DNA match with Spasoff. Video surveillance tape was found to bear no relevance to case, Herguth said. 

Spasoff, said Herguth, has a "lengthy record for theft, trespass, criminal mischief and assault."

Note: an arrest does not indicate a conviction.
