[ knocking ] >> reporter: nobody answered when we knocked on the door at the martinez home. but her neighbor, mary ruiz, says she always thought that martinez's rape story didn't add up. >> why would you do something so stupid? why don't you just talk to your husband say, let's move somewhere, honey. i don't like it here. >> reporter: now martinez could face up to three years in prison, a place she is familiar
with. she works at new folsom prison as a senior psychologist. since the investigation began, her position has changed. a statement from the california department of corrections and rehabilitation says, "she has no contact with patients and her current work is not directly related to patient care." yet martinez continues to work. not yet put on administrative leave, even though police say she has confessed to the whole thing. >> i told my daughter, i said, something doesn't seem right and she said i know. it's a mystery why they would target that house. the missing solano county teenager who tryingrds a statewide amber alert is safe tonight. now investigators are trying to determine if there was a crime committed at all. police say 17-year-old christina almanza was found in a vallejo home this afternoon with people she knew. she was allegedly abducted wednesday. family members told police that she had left a voicemail saying that she along with three other

down in reno in september. a member of the rival game is accused of firing the fatal shot. another member and a hells angels are also charged in connection with the case. the trial is next october. wow. a minute later? that's -- that is really crazy. >> yup. gone in 60 seconds. the choreographed heist to steal more than hundreds of ipads from a bay area store. >> how does it taste, good? >> why a bay area kindergarten is being given medical marijuana. and how vineyards in napa are getting into the business of saving fish. ,,,,,,,,,,
gone in 60 seconds. that's how long police say it took two thieves to steal hundreds of ipads from a bay area best buy. gil diaz is in san carlos where police say the heist was carefully planned. >> reporter: yeah. carefully planned and it was so fast that lieutenant luny believes that the store's alarm hadn't even gone off yet. it happened last night just before midnight. the store was closed. initially 125 ipads were reported stolen but after a better store inventory check, it turns out those crooks made off with more than 200 of them. the two suspects wasted no time. from the moment they pried open best buy's front entrant gate to the moment they snatched the rack of ipads, it was all gone in 60 seconds. >> wow. a minute later? that's -- that is still even -- even -- that's crazy. >> reporter: crazy as it sounds, it appears that this was a choreographed stunt. surveillance video shows the duo after entering through the front door making a right turn and heading straight to where
the ipads were located. inside a locked four-foot by four-foot steel rack. the suspects both men dragged that steel rack outside a fire exit door and into their vehicle. >> it appears that they were well prepared and knew where the cameras were. we don't see them looking at any of the cameras. in fact, we see them looking away from all of them. >> reporter: initially it was reported that 125 ipads had been stolen. but after best buy did a complete inventory check, it discovered that two to three hundred were stolen. the lost estimated over $100,000. >> that's a hot commodity i guess right now. people want them for christmas. so they kind of figure, hey, steal that many ipads we can make a lot of money right before christmas. >> reporter: investigators describe both suspects as slim, one wearing a black jacket, black pants, black beanie and white shoes. the second suspect is around 6
feet tall wearing black hoodie and black pants, as well. it's possible they could be tracked down through the serial numbers. there is a feature on the ipad called find my ipad that locates the device through its built-in gps system but that only works if the user manually turns it on. and it may sound tempting to find those stole-ipads and buy one but if you do that, you could get in trouble. reporting from san carlos, gil diaz, cbs 5. a teenager is behind bars accused in another apple caper this one in los gatos. police say an officer was taking two people to jail when he saw broken glass and a large pick axe in front of an apple store overnight. he looked inside and saw a masked burglar stealing apple products. police arrested the thief, who they say is 15 years old. and just in, we are learning a fourth suspect involved in a black friday shooting outside a walmart store has been arrested. in fact, the "chronicle"
