A teenager was arrested early Wednesday morning on suspicion of trying to break into a Petaluma market, a police sergeant said.

Police responded to an attempted burglary at Lolita's Market at 451 Lakeville St. around 3 a.m., Sgt. Steve Nelson said.

The market was closed but an employee inside called police to report that someone had broken the glass of the front door, Nelson said.

Officers found 18-year-old Brendon Schiefer, of Petaluma, in a parked vehicle about 100 to 150 feet from the market on a side street, Nelson said.

Schiefer tried to drive away but was stopped and arrested on suspicion of attempted burglary. He was booked into the Sonoma County Jail and was being held on $10,000 bail, Nelson said.
