6:23 pm
dr. calvin harley is with a company that has developed a test that can accurately measure the length of an individual's teeler meter. why is length important? >> very short teelermeres. >> reporter: when they are shortened they can put you at a higher risk of heart disease, cancer, even dimensia. the good news, they are the one part of your d.n.a. you can actually change. >> they can shrink or they can increase in length depending upon your lifestyle and risk exposures. >> reporter: the idea, get an annual checkup. >> if you have extremely short teelermere length or there is a rapid reduction in the length it may indicative that there a health problem. >> reporter: the doctor may then prescribe a better diet,

tonight new details in the we have an accident we want to tell you about tonight if you're expecting anybody home. of course it is friday night at 6:30 p.m. a three car accident we are told. a taxi and two other vehicles. it is the southbound lane of 880. it is right before the 980 interchange. so here you can see from our chopper 5 the two cars involved right there. one looks like a saab. i don't know what that other car is. again, we are told that a taxi was also involved in this but again this is southbound 880 just before the 980 interchange there is the taxi. so three charges involved. we don't know about any injuries but we will keep an eye on this should traffic start to backup. >> in other news tonight. new details in the police prostitution scandal that we have been reporting on all week. we are hearing a new side to
6:29 pm
the story involving a police commander, a brothel and drugs. joe vazquez brings us up to speed. >> reporter: dana, the story, of course, there has been a new development on this every day. especially after we were able to confirm this week the accusations about a brothel allegedly being run by a police commander. this is lewis lombardi. today he went before a judge in martinez. prosecutors say he was helping his boss commandser norman wielsch sell confiscated drugs back on the street. investigators are also looking into how much he knew about the house of prostitution. who ran the brothel in this pleasant hills store front and who made the money? depends who you ask. >> norman wielsch was very involved. >> reporter: the attorney says it was a joint venture between
6:30 pm
his client, private investigator chris buttler and norman wielsch of cnet. butler says he leased the space in his own name, bought the furniture, hired the prostitutes and collected the money they earned. but he says it was norman wielsch's idea in the first place. that it was norman wielsch that eventually got all the cash and that the commandser busted other houses of prostitution masking as massage parlors. >> busting or attempting to. and there were other activities that were along those lines i really at this point don't want to get into. >> was he part owner? >> he didn't have a formal partnership agreement but he was the beneficiary of the cash receipts. >> norman wielsch was? >> who collects the money and who gets the money. >> the money is collected by the so-called staff of this brothel and each week the money was counted and put in a drawer
6:31 pm
and picked up by mr. butler to give to mr. norman wielsch. >> reporter: four women worked at the brothel. norman wielsch arrested sims in 2009 for running a house of prostitution. the charge was later reduced to disturbing the peace. it was just a few months later that the pleasant hill brothel went into operation. butler says at least one other cop san ramone police officer, lewis lombardi, a member of the cnet task force, was aware of the brothel. he was arrested last week and arraigned today. prosecutors say he worked with norman wielsch to resell drugs confiscated in police raids. >> the two not agreeing. investigators will have to rely on corroborating evidence, physical evidence and statements made by witnesses
6:32 pm
including jordie sims. >> norman wielsch is under scrutiny for something different. officer-involved shooting. >> three years ago in antioch. the cnet team led by norman wielsch go into antioch and kick in a door trying to catch a drug dealer. instead an officer killed an innocent man tim mitchell. cbs5 was told the case was determined to be a justified police shooting. so the federal judge dropped that case. it is a civil lawsuit but a few days ago the judge changed her mind and decided she would allow that civil lawsuit to go forward because not only norman wielsch but lombardi's names were attached to it. neither pulled the trigger but they were on the raid. lombardi pushed the officer as they are going through the door and the chaos going through a door and it was that push that sparked the shooting and because their names are attached to it, there is a whole question about their
6:33 pm
credibility so they are reviving it. >> i know you have been going back through the files on the norman wielsch thing. you came across an interesting interview that had been done with him before? >> reporter: by us. by cbs5. this was a shock to us. it was a story about how norman wielsch's father got taken by a company that cleans air ducts and our consumer unit interviewed norman wielsch for that story. >> and just be wary of extra charges because it is so easy for them to talk you into things. these guys are professional. i think they are professional scam artists. >> why do you say that? >> norman wielsch appears to be a straight shooter in the interview. wondering how someone could stoop so low taking advantage of others. his words take on a different tone today given his legal trouble. >> right. well, amazing work following this story because it has some fox holes just everywhere. >> you just wonder what will happen next. i'm told there won't be any more arrests but stay tuned
6:34 pm
because investigators have so many tenticles to chase down. >> joe vazquez, thank you very much. next week the federal government is going to auction off items that belong to the uinbomber. well known hoodie and manifesto up for sale. grace lee found out that the feds came up with a different idea. >> reporter: want to delve into the minds of a unibomber. buy some of his property. >> a screwdriver is just a screwdriver unless we can describe that it had some significant impact in the case. >> reporter: u.s. marshal saying next week they will auction off 60 items that once belonged to ted kazinski and explain how each item was significant in the fbi investigation. most of the property was taken from his one-room cabin in montana. >> the manifesto is worth more because it is his actual thought process. >> reporter: marcus is an appraiser. he says the hottest item could
6:35 pm
be the manifesto. that will probably bring in the most cash. >> the manifesto, maybe 30 to 50,000. >> reporter: the typewriter used to write the manifesto could bring in between 10 to $20,000. together they could get an even higher price. and what about the notorious sunglasses and hoodie the unibomber. >> the hoodie 2 to 4000. >> reporter: also for sale the shoes he made with smaller soles attached. he says the pair could bring in a couple of thousand dollars. but the whole collection could haul in $150,000. it will be an online auction for the man who injured 24 people and killed three with homemade bombs. the same man who fought against development and technology. >> i am thinking it is not just
6:36 pm
a little irony, i think it is a lot of irony hearing that ted kazinski railed against technology and now we are using that very technology to auction off artifacts of his life. >> reporter: grace lee, cbs5. >> typically after an investigation once the legal battle is over the fbi does destroy all the evidence. this time the u.s. marshals will give the proceeds to the victims and their families. the bidding going to start may 18th lasting for two weeks in sort of an ebay-style type of auction. well, it is not exactly indiana jones but it is a chance to be a real archaeologist for a month. where you'll dig and what you might find. one last advisory before the mayhem begins. this year nudeity is all good. some other things not so much. i'm kim coyle coming up in sports. the giants look to extend their
