we wanted to know where all of that stolen merchandise ends up. >> andria borba is looking into it from santana row in san jose for us. andria? >> reporter: well, allen and elizabeth, as we all know, this is not the first team wife seen these mass organized retail ransackings of stores with merchandise taken out of the stores. we here at kpix 5 have looked into this issue in the past, and have an idea where all of the merchandise is headed. the lulu is calm right now. yesterday, it was anything but. thieves swarmed in and stole more than $40,000 in merchandise. >> this was being, you know, orchestrated by an organized crime ring. not retail crime, organized crime. so when you talk about human trafficking, you talk about drug cartels, that's the area
that we're in right now, and retail theft is funding those types of really bad crimes. >> reporter: so where does all of that merchandise go? >> are they real, or just, like -- >> yeah, it's relying. everything is real. >> reporter: so we bought some. and how much is it then? >> $50. >> reporter: this is from our investigation in february of 2020, about a swarm of smash and grabs in 2019. this store has been hit three times in four months in santa rosa. then we found a vendor at the laney college swap meet selling veal lulu linen at half price. >> for it to show up at a swap meet -- inspected guess would be that it would be stolen. . >> reporter: where are you getting all of this stuff, ma'am. >> don't know. >> reporter: is it stolen? >> i don't know. it's none of my business. >> reporter: this is what a
police officer told us about the heist in 2020. >> there's planning that going into when to steal, what to steal, where to steal, and then what to do with what is stolen. >> reporter: today sergeant christian of the san jose p.d. told us this isn't just victimless theft, but dangerous robbery. >> one of the suspects that entered lulu lemon had a visible gun in his waistband, so his who we're dealing with. very planned and organized. they were armed. >> reporter: now some of this merchandise will end up at those swap meets and plea markets on tables being sold at the real thing, which they are, at a lower cost for someone. some of these will end up on on- line marketplaces like ebay and elsewhere. some of the real high-end stuff, the diamonds and the pearls, that is bigger question and one of the things these task forces really have to answer, elizabeth. they're trying to figure out who was at the top pulling the
strings, telling these people to go in swarms, how it's being organized. there's a lot of questions to get to the top of the organizations that are running these. >> seems to always come down to follow the money. where is the money going. >> reporter: yep. >> all right, andria, thanks. >> this city has to deal with overwhelming violence in this community over the weekend, and it's unacceptable. it's unacceptable for our residents. it's unacceptable for our visitors. nobody should have to live through this. i'm asking council to step up and have a conversation about how they support our effort to address public safety this city. >> tonight oakland's police chief already planning ahead to next weekend and asking city leaders to back him up after a violent couple of days that he called unprecedented. in addition to responding to the city's 124th homicide of the year, officers came under fire as they tried to stop a series of robberies in marijuana dispensaries and other businesses. a carjacking led to a police shootout in rockridge, leaving

u.s. and abroad. >> she's doing a good job of personalizing herself and getting the jury to like her. >> tomorrow is the last day of testimony before the trial breaks for the thanksgiving holiday. still to come, why doordash is about to delivery millions of dollars to its san francisco drivers. and the race against the climate clock off the sonoma coast tonight. >> this is a climate driven catastrophe that in this was happening in our terrestrial forests, it would be front page news every day. a nice start to the abbreviated workweek. temperatures were well above average in san jose, while everybody else reached up to 66 or 67 degrees. thanksgiving is look nice. we'll look ahead to the holiday coming up in the forecast. and our food for bay area families drive is on. to donate
warm is hardly the way anyone who has dipped a toe in the water of our coast would describe it, but kelp is used to chilly 55 degrees. lately the water has been reaching the mid-60s, and for this ecosystem, that's a heat wave, which brings us to the root of this problem, the pacific is getting warmer. if we time lapse the last 10 years, we see an obviously trend. areas in red show temperatures that are above average. by the time we get to 2015, the year of kelp forest collapsed, we see a blob of water so large it's technically classified as a marine heat wave, one the blob, as it's been called, was
quickly followed by other marine heat waves. there is one in 2017. here is another one in 2019, out in 2020. some of that water along the coast was near 70 degrees. >> there are certainly locations like this spot, russian gulch, where the kelp has just hung on. >> reporter: assistant professor brent hughes of sonoma state university took me to a small beach where he has found a glimmer of hope. >> if you're going to restore by reseeding, then maybe you could select from the best populations that will have the west by chance of surviving if there is another warming event. >> reporter: once you find a strain that can handle the heat like that, you can find millions of spores, and if you can transplant that up here, maybe that will work. >> eventually we're going to figure things out. we don' the answerers, but we're working towards it. >> reporter: you are racing against the clock. >> we are racing against the
climate clock, yes. >> there was a small ray of hope in this story this year. if you look back at 2019, the kelp is virtually gone along the mendocino county coastline. but then you can see a lot more of it here. it really did surge back. ocean temperatures off the coast, right there, that's the california current, which went into overdrive this summer, and it really provided the best cold conditions for kelp you're going to find. we should have seen kelp flourish under a situation like that this year. instead, we got about 10% of what would have normally been there under an ideal situation like that. so, yeah, the kelp did show signs of being able to bounce back, but nowhere near what it needed to, and it's not going to be enough, because with more marine heat waves coming, other alternatives are going to have to work. >> we're going to have to do something about this prepare >> we first have to get rid of
