5:00 pm
at the san jose police headquarters tonight were they gave us new information on the bus. for many of the suspects, this was not the first arrest. >> reporter: this was a very large bus, but authorities say about one half of the people they are resting for the second time. they took five adults and 11 juveniles into custody. police say they are responsible for numerous crimes including seven robberies, six carjackings, 10 burglaries, and assault with a deadly weapon. authorities say they seized several firearms and some stolen property with the bus -- bust. they are calling this a new type of game that doesn't claim specific turf, but focuses on a high volume of crime in a short amount of time. >> they would carjack a car and maybe drive it around until they could find another victim. then they would rob that victim on the street and commit another robbery and may be a burglary. then they would get rid of the first car and carjack the
5:01 pm
second car. >> reporter: this was a multi- jurisdiction steam. authorities say because the gang operated far outside of the san jose area as well as in san jose. the santa clara district attorney's office is issuing an alert as local authorities have told them a band of roving criminals is heading to the county, and their targets are senior citizens. the group is known for distraction burglaries often times pretending to be from a utility company or a roof repair business. investigators say they will make up an excuse to get into the person's home using one member to distract the homeowner, and that is when they strike. >> while the victim is distracted, another crew member of this scam outfit will come into the house and rummaged through the house and look for any valuables they can find. we have had cases where the
5:02 pm
suspects have even taken safes bolted to the floor. >> authorities say that senior citizens are often the target and advising people to check the credentials of any service provider trying to get into their home and to be especially cautious in the coming weeks. a formal warning will be issued by the das office tomorrow, however it turns out those scammers may already be here. pg&e tells ktvu they have at least 20 cases over the past week impersonating pg&e representatives all over the bay area. an important warning and pg&e says you should always ask for identification. newly released video shows police officers knew of the dangers inside of the oakland go ship warehouse more than one year before that fire that killed 36 people. hours of body camera video was leaked to the newspaper, and the east day times wrote the story to 2 investigates. 
5:03 pm
it is now some of the most visible evidence the police knew about the hazards inside of that warehouse. >> some of the officers were there more than once. our 2 investigates reporter talk to the people who said the city should be liable for the people who died inside of that warehouse. >> reporter: the attorneys representing those two men charged said this only bolsters this aspect their case. there was more than one dozen videos of police visiting the warehouse and on seven occasions , officers went inside responding to fights or illegal parties or arguments among tenants. >> it is more like a residence, but like a loft. >> reporter: more than a year before this open warehouse was overtaken by flames and smoke, officers were called to the go ship, and not just once, but another time and officers commented on the rickety stairs. >> is this even stable?
5:04 pm
>> reporter: and then the clutter. proof that officers knew. >> it's like a huge fireplace in here. >> reporter: public records appeared to show no reports, no inspections, and no violations. >> it gave a green light to my clients! they see and they know and they say okay. >> reporter:'s attorney represents the master tenant who along with max here is which are in the deaths of 30 people after flames took over a party in 2016. >> i was at the door and i heard somebody scream fire, so i went into myspace to get a fire extinguisher. >> reporter: newly released body camera video shows some of the chaos that night. >> there was so much smoke, and my powercore just melted and i just dropped it and i said oh
5:05 pm
my god, i can't believe i made it! >> reporter: the video also shows the failure of city employees to take action long before. >> they don't have any choice. the law requires them to do something. they didn't and as result this tragic event happened. >> reporter: pg&e and the owners of the family are being held responsible. >> we are going to be able to hold them responsible and they contributed to this tragic event. >> reporter: a tragic that defense and civil attorneys argued were still in the making many years before it happened. >> can you legally stay here? >> reporter: 2 investigates has asked the city and the police department about these videos, responsibility, and accountability. we also attempted to speak with the district attorney and have not heard anything back . but the oakland police did defend their officer saying they are not trained to identify our
5:06 pm
hazards, but the attorneys told me today that is a bunch of malarkey. >> what about firefighters or building inspectors? did they not see the same thing? >> reporter: i found a case where the firefighters were inside and attended a party at one point. it is just a matter of this not getting up the chain. there is some evidence that people knew about it. it just did not go anywhere. >> it does seem kind of odd that police are defending their officer saying they were not trained to identify fire hazards. you could clearly see on that video that the police knew this was questionable, and as they said, once park and this whole thing goes up. >> reporter: there is not a statewide training that is given to firefighters across the state to identify these things, but any normal person would know that if you go into a place and see a cluttered room and rickety stairs, you may think twice before you go
5:07 pm
up those stairs are go into that building. especially when you have a party or something like that going on. it makes you question why wasn't more attention paid and why wasn't that put of the chain. >> so what happens now? >> what are the attorneys saying on how this could affect the case? >> reporter: the two men charged in the case, they are trying to get those charges dismissed. this only helps them. it speaks to more evidence to help them out. as for the civil case, that too shows there was more people responsible than just those two men at the building that night. a group of central american migrants who have traveled for more than a month to seek asylum in the u.s. were turned away today by border inspectors in tijuana. the inspectors say the crossing facility has reached capacity. about 50 people were allowed to camp outside of the entrance overnight, but officials did not say when they might be allowed to apply for asylum. this comes as vice president

mike pence toward the border wall today with the tough message on immigration. >> this is an a ministration that make -- an administration that is committed to border integrity and the sovereignty of the united states of america be protected. >> we have no opportunities in honduras. over here, we might have opportunities. >> president donald trump has criticized the caravan saying it needs to be stopped. but immigrants say they face gang violence and persecution in their home country. advocates say the u.s. is legally required to hear their asylum claims. this past weekend, a group of attorneys from across the country volunteer their time to meet with refugees from mexico. our reporter tells us that one of those attorneys is from san francisco, and she says she thinks federal authorities are breaking the law. >> these are some of the legal volunteers and organizers of the caravan. >> reporter: picture show that
5:09 pm
the volunteer effort in tijuana, mexico with his san francisco attorney and other lawyers spent their time helping nearly 200 refugees seeking asylum in the u.s. the refugees were rejected sunday at the u.s. border near san diego. >> after all that they have suffered and the strength they still have together, i am outraged that the u.s. government as we are supposed to be a beacon of hope for people around the world who are fleeing this type of items, and i think this is despicable. >> reporter: she says she does not believe border and customs officials who say they are at capacity. >> everyone who is fearing violence in the country has a right to seek asylum in the united states. as an asylum officer who conducts an interview and then will conduct whether not you have a credible fear. >> reporter: the group volunteer traveled to tijuana to provide legal advice to the caravan of migrants explaining the rights and helping them understand the process of applying for asylum in the u.s.
5:10 pm
and this is by colleague, another attorney he went down with a -- an another minor. >> reporter: the caravan is now camped out in mexico near the port of entry, stranded on the last leg of the journey. the group isn't giving up. >> it was amazing to see the determination of everyone down there and after all they have suffered, the string they have together. about 200 national guard members are set to arrive at the california-mexican border as part of the deal reached by governor brown and the trumpet ministration. mission will be to crackdown on gangs, human traffickers, weapons, and drug smugglers. but the guard members will not be tasked with enforcing immigration laws are helping with the construction of a border wall. fixing potholes and repairing fences are jobs that follow caltrans. but they say

5:15 pm
they lost a pilot program to put attendance at the elevators. they come from the nonprofit hunters family group. this comes after years of problems of people using those elevators as restrooms. >> we want that dignity for our writers whether not they are in a wheelchair or pushing a stroller or with a suitcase. we want to make sure that it is not an unpleasant ride, and a positive experience. that they don't have to hold their nose while they are in the elevator or fear for their safety either. >> the attendance will be on duty seven days a week from the time the station is open until they close. some of the funding will also go to provide restrooms in an effort to keep the elevators clean. it is important work and taking place up high in the air. engineers were propelling down the golden state towers for
5:16 pm
inspection. the first day just wrapped up, and it was quite a spectacle. our reporter is at the bridge tonight with what they are calling arm's-length inspections. >> reporter: it has been quite the spectacle of peer and many people are wondering what exactly was going on up there. the golden gate bridge draws visitors from around the world, but no one has ever seen this site, not here anyway. >> i was having a look at the bridge and looked up, and there is some people hanging off of the bridge. >> reporter: the first time in their history, inspectors are repelling down the two high towers to see up close what condition those towers are in. >> they are looking for anywhere that the elements have really up the golden gate bridge and will need to be worked on or repaired. >> reporter: there are two workers in two teams and called an arm's-length inspection.
5:17 pm
people taking photos of the bridge may not notice them, the people who walked the bridge can see the. the bridge has had their share of protest and daredevil stunts and some the first that is what might've been going on. >> it is very risky. >> reporter: the workers will not be hanging over the roadway, but bridge authorities are cautioning drivers not to be distracted and to keep their eyes on the road, not on the workers. those employees are with that engineering firm hdr inc. it looks like risky business to many. >> i would not do that. hanging off the road is really something i would not do. >> reporter: these inspections are expected to last until saturday. after that, it is every two years. >> i cannot get over those pictures as those workers have nerves of steel repelling off of those towers. >> reporter: not everybody is cut out to do that kind of
5:18 pm
work. but they do this kind of work and that is way to do it. let's hope they do it safety -- safely. while sky fox was monitoring the work being done this morning, we spotted a whale in the bay and you can see it often the distant there. >> it is right at the top of the screen. >> it is not unusual to see whales in this part of the bay, but it does make for quite of a show. everything was caught on camera today. let's go over to bill in the weather center. cloudy this morning but clear outside. >> would you rappel off the bridge? >> if you guys said i had to do it, and you did frank, i would do it. and they are up there so high, and oh my gosh! >> 720 feet high on those towers.
5:19 pm
i love old san francisco history and if you look at the old pictures of them during the bridge before osha, those guys were up there barely roped in. that bridge is such a part of all of us. it is neat to see any angle of it and anything that goes on with that bridges news. for us outside, a cloudy day to start with and cooler than it has been. but it is going to start warming up. temperatures will get back into the 70s, and we do have some showers out there right now. we have been talking about them for a while and i need to back it up a little. let's put a 12 hour loop on this, and there is the westerly flow, and you can see the showers up in the lake tahoe area. by the, mother of peer around clear lake, and even a little snow flurry activity at the higher elevations. at least, some freezing rain at the top of st. helena. the shower activity is right
5:20 pm
over mount st. helena. that is where the yellow is showing up. down toward napa, you have a few showers as well. over your, this could easily be a thunderstorm. i am not sure if those are good readings and i will check it a little bit later on. by now, you can see it going all pretty good. so these showers and part of the reason things are so mild around here, more showers out toward napa. all of this is moving this way. i would love it to go over my house to tell you the truth. my lawn needs some water. so down toward highway 12, and really down toward the leo -- the leo -- this city as well. that is what is going to happen over the next hour and perhaps we could see a few showers as
5:21 pm
far south and out toward fairfield. it is 62 degrees in livermore right now. so temperatures are about where they were yesterday and maybe a little bit cooler in hayward, but warmer in san jose. not a lot of wind out there for this time of year. it is spring and here we go with may, and imagers are going to start to warm up. showers to the north and winding down. we will see you back here with a complete forecast. still to come, they are used to doing road maintenance and repair, but now caltran workers are saying they are being forced into a more dangerous job. the changes they are demanding is coming up next. 4 2 investigates investigates pg&e lobbying in sacramental -- sacramento in the wake of those northbay wildfires. >> the fire came on so fast.
5:22 pm
>> i remember driving as fast as we can and saying we have to jump into the pool. we hugged each other and said we loved each other and said this could be it. >> this will give pg&e a blank check for anything they label as safety. >> a new bill that critics say it will make it harder for pg&e to hold it accountable and easier for utilities to raise the race. >> we don't have a position on the bill at this time. >> i have never seen this full- court press at every angle. if we allow them to change the law, and frankly they will not have a stake in the game. >> they spent more than $4 million in lobbying last year. >> why was it important to be heard in san francisco -- sacramento? >> there would be no reason for them to do the best job they can or to be responsible. >> i find out outrageous and
5:23 pm
the reprehensible -- reprehensible.
5:24 pm
5:25 pm
caltran workers say they are sick tired and disgusted after cleaning up homeless camps one after another. >> they have filed a former the spec formal grievance saying they are not trained for this type of work and it is not what they signed up for. i reported is live with more on this. >> reporter: they tolerated it for years, but it really got
5:26 pm
bad over the last year and basically what happens is that caltrans find themselves between a rock and a hard place. that would be there employees and the homeless. cleaning up homeless camps is often dangerous with the cruise the who are -- the crews who are task doing the job. there is potentially toxic or biologically unsafe materials. >> feces and urine and all kinds of thing on the ground. needles, syringes, and they use five gallon buckets for toilets . it gets really disgusting. >> reporter: that is to say nothing of the open hostility that often comes from those being evicted. >> reporter: sometimes they have pit bulls in there and they will let the dogs loose to chase the workers out. sometimes they will throw rocks at the workers. >> reporter: add to that live alleged cold winds and the
5:27 pm
occasional weapons. that is why the union filed an official grievance. caltrans issued this statement today saying safety is a top priority for caltrans, and we will carefully review the grievance. >> the job is to maintain the highways and freeways and filling the potholes and striping the lines and the guard rails and trimming the trees along the highway. their job is not to clean up homeless encampments. >> reporter: the caltrans workers have a point about their own safety. we can clean up and cleaned out as many homeless camps as we want, but that is not getting at the root cause, the things that cause homeless. and they need to get -- >> they need to get together and solve this. >> reporter: until then, melvin, who has been on the
5:28 pm
street for four years, says that some camps will be used. >> they will wait for the city to come and pick it up. >> reporter: these days, the typical cleanup takes two or three days minimum. caltrans says in the last five years, they have spent more than $30 million to clean up homeless camps and $10 million last year alone. that is all money that could have gone and should have gone to road maintenance. coming up, a suspected serial killer was arrested with the help of a three dna genealogical website. that is some police departments open this tactic can solve even more crimes. >> it has definitely been a game changer. >> while it may not help in every criminal investigation, there is one specific type of case that investigators are hoping that genealogical test
5:29 pm
will help. a young star with the san francisco 49ers had a court appearance delayed today and why the attorneys say they need another week to review certain evidence in this case. a mother from albany is looking for answers after her son became the city's first homicide victim in three years.
