"Officers attended and arrested a male at the scene and he was taken to Thorpewood Police Station in Peterborough," said a police spokesman.
Inquiries are continuing.
One worker told a community Facebook group: "It was really bad. Can not believe the mess? Every isle and the stock room were affected.

"We would like to thank all the customers and staff that helped clean up and look after our staff. Amazing community spirit."
One worker said: "I've worked 17 years in both (Nisa) shops and I've never seen anything like it my life. The damage was horrendous not to mention what the staff had to deal with."
One resident said the man "was shouting down the street and kicking cars before he done that to the shop."
