Suspect in string of store burglaries caught on video at Graton market

Sonoma County sheriff's detectives are looking for a man caught on video breaking into a Graton market.

The man also is suspected in at least two other break-ins in northern Sonoma County, Sgt. Mike Raasch said.

Detectives have not yet identified him and are asking the public to view surveillance footage taken Sept. 6 during the burglary at Bill's Market on Highway 116.

In a brazen hourlong effort, the man disabled an alarm system and jimmied open a window, at times pausing to look over his shoulder and step away.

Once inside, sparks fly as he uses a power tool to break into a box below a register.

He left with cash, Raasch said.

The burglary occurred at about 2 a.m. at the market on Highway 116 near Graton Road.

The man was wearing a white baseball cap, thick-rimmed glasses, dark grey sweat shirt and blue jeans.

He appeared to be about 6-feet tall, black and in his 30s or 40s, Raasch said.

Detectives suspect the same man may have been involved in at least two other burglaries, but released no further information about those incidents.
