Joe Arellano, spokesman for the PlumpJack Group told NewsBreak: “This morning, the front door to our PlumpJack wine store in the Marina was smashed. We recently installed security cameras and are in the process of reviewing the footage. Over the past year during the shelter-in-place, this store location has experienced several attempted break-ins, similar to many of the other businesses in the area and across the city. Thankfully, it appears nothing of value was taken, and our security deterrents worked.”

As previously reported, former California Senator Barbara Boxer was mugged in Oakland Monday afternoon.
