A Sonoma man is being held in the county jail on $10,000 bail after he was suspected of trying to break in to the Easy Stop Market on Broadway.
Sonoma police responded to the market sometime after 2 a.m. on Saturday, April 8, for an alarm. When deputies arrived, they found someone had tried to gain entry to the shop by smashing the front window, but because of bars on the inside, the attempt was unsuccessful.
But the store has a very good surveillance system, and after reviewing the tapes, the deputies knew who they were looking for. Not only did the deputies know who the man was, but the owner and clerk at the store knew who he was because he lives in the neighborhood and is a regular customer.
The deputies went to the man’s residence on Oak Lane and awakened him in order to arrest him. The man reportedly got dressed in the same clothes he’s wearing on the video and there were even glass shards on his clothing.
The deputies arrested Warren Munk, 48, of Sonoma, on charges of felony attempted burglary and felony vandalism, and transported him to the county jail.
