An 18-year-old Petaluma man suspected of trying to smash his way into a small Lakeville Street market that was closed for the night was arrested early Wednesday morning after an employee inside alerted police.

Authorities said Brendon Schiefer was arrested shortly after 3 a.m. as he drove away from the vicinity of Lolita's Market.

Officers said they saw Schiefer parked on a side street about 100 to 150 feet away from the market not long after the employee notified authorities that someone had broken through a glass door.

Officers had just arrived when Schiefer drove away, but he was quickly stopped, they said.

Schiefer was booked into Sonoma County Jail on suspicion of attempted burglary and was held in lieu of $10,000 bail.
