A man was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of vandalism and burglary after he reportedly smashed the window of a large department store on Santa Rosa Avenue and took a bottle of wine and other food and drink items, police said.

Witnesses called police shortly before 4:46 a.m. and reported that a man threw two large rocks through the glass doors of the store and took several items.

Police said the store was on the 1900 block of Santa Rosa Avenue, an area that has a Costco, Target, BevMo and Trader Joe’s.

The suspect, identified as Morgan Anthony Plumere, 32, fled shortly after the break-in and headed west on Kawana Springs Road, police said. Plumere was spotted by a police officer on patrol in the area and taken into custody.

Plumere, who told police he was homeless, was booked into Sonoma County Jail on suspicion of burglary, felony vandalism and two counts of violation of probation.
