roua coin dealer targeted by thieves , and the manager tells us it is not the first time that her family's stores have been hit. it's getting more and more scary . these guys doing this think that we've got a lot of stuff for them to take. and we don't good evening, everyone. i'm heather holmes mike mibach. we'll get to that story in just a moment. but first arrest tonight in a series of dozens of arsons. live coverage right now from ktvu s elissa harrington in the city of concord, alyssa. that's right. you know, contra costa county firefighters say that there were more than 30 arsons they responded to and just a two day time span. it has been a very busy week, and they want to remind people that now is the time to prepare your
homes. when the first one went off. our son was sleeping, so we kind of panicked. a little bit pulls house is just up the hill from hillcrest park in antiochus , the place where someone set six fires over the weekend, we heard crackling. my wife came up and we saw the smoke coming in the backyard. and then the following day we heard it a little bit louder because it was right at the bottom of the walkway here. you can see those burned areas of the park. flames raced up the hillsides and came within feet of homes. scary situation for us steve hill with the contra costa county fire protection district, said cruz responded to 33 arsons across the county in just a 48 hour time span. investigators were able to track down and arrest four people believed to be the arsonist working separately, even though those fires were mostly set near homes and businesses. we were able to get on them quickly and keep them from getting into those structures, so no structures were affected or lost bythose 3t
residents should do as well. for example, the weed abatement deadline in contra costa county has made 31st. this includes mandatory brush clearing and tree trimming. many neighborhoods are also in the wildland urban interface. these are areas where homes meet up with the wildlands and are surrounded by highly flammable vegetation. the fire yesterday in southern california is just another reminder that we are in a dangerous fire weather here. not red flag weather, but nonetheless, the conditions on the ground are very dangerous because the fuel is so dry and there's so much of it. of course, fire is on everyone's mind because of those devastating wildfires down in southern california. firefighters around here also do evacuation drills where they sometimes ask residents to take part. that's for people who live. up in the hills or in those high fire. danger areas reporting live in concord. i'm elissa harrington ktvu fox two news, alyssa. thank you for that. well this evening,
officials in orange county say the damaging fire in laguna niguel is now 15% contained 200 acres that have burned in 20 homes in the upscale community or destroyed 11. others damaged . one family returned today to see that only a birdhouse had survived the flames. that destroyed their home of 30 years. i really not at all how to describe it. it's my parents' pride and joy. the evacuation order for 900 residents remains in effect at least through tomorrow morning as crews try to get a line around the fire there also preserving whatever mementos they find. they found a laptop computer. but they also found a wedding photo and be able to hand that over to the homeowner in the face of such devastation. that means a lot for them. the community. and, of course ourselves. 550 firefighters are out there on the front lines working to get
full containment. they're also warning of hotter weather about to settle in in the coming days . extreme drought is worsening across california. the drought monitors latest map shows the dark red area of extreme drought across much of the central valley and inland counties. the bay area. drought picture has not changed, but the drought monitor says cooler temperatures have helped delay the melting of the shallow snowpack, which is at 22% of normal new details tonight in the kidnapping case of that three month old in san jose. excuse me. bross cuter said today that the couple charged in the abduction had already made several attempts to take the baby as ktvu. jesse gary tells us one of those attempts involved posing as a child protective services worker. it's absolutely shocking . this is i think any parent's worst nightmare during court proceedings thursday in san jose , santa clara county prosecutors slept yesenia ramirez and jose patio with three more counts of attempted kidnapping. there's a difference between allegations and facts. we have allegations
right now, the actual substantive evidence that would presumably underlie these charges has not been provided. the newly alleged crimes occurred before the pair was caught and charged with the april 24th kidnapping of three month old baby brandon dough. san jose police evidence from text messages show the pair had tried to carry out the crime at least three times starting in march. in one instance, portillo went to the child's home posing as a child protective services worker. but he left when the family didn't turn the baby over . there have been multiple attempts to kidnap brandon dough since the beginning of march and that they have been planning coordinating and attempting to kidnap him since the beginning of march, ultimately did kidnap the child, touching off a near 20 hour search in late april. the baby was found at a home near regional medical center and returned to his mother. investigators say ramirez orchestrated the plan and patio is the person seen in surveillance video walking off
with the infant? my clients terrified. i mean, she's sitting in jail. she's held in nobel status. she doesn't even have the opportunity to post bail. we are at the district attorney's office determined to see justice for brandon dough as well as on behalf of the community. a plea hearing is scheduled for june, the seventh the defense could bring up the issue of bail at that time or put it off until another date. as it stands right now. both defendants were being held without bail outside the hall of justice here in san jose , jesse gary ktvu, fox two news. san jose police department is dealing with accusations of misconduct against several officers. in the latest case, an officer is accused of indecent exposure while on the job. ktvu crime reporter henry lee tells us how the police chief and mayor are now responding. it's been a steady drumbeat in recent weeks. allegations of misconduct by young san jose police officers, drug and alcohol use lewd acts and other misconduct both on and off duty. we have a serious problem in this j p d
requires remedial action immediately. a mayor sam liccardo, is calling for random drug and alcohol testing for all officers, not just ones in specialty units. nothing angers. a good cop more than a bad cop. i know that the. overwhelming majority of officers in this department. are furious as i am began with revelations that rookie officer dijon packer had died from a fentanyl overdose at his home in milpitas, a startling turn for the former san jose state football star. then another officer turned in by an fbi agent for allegedly being drunk while helping the search for a kidnapped baby boy. a third officer, matthew dominguez, was arrested thursday and charged with indecent exposure for literally touching himself in a home in front of three female relatives of a mentally ill man. 1/4 officer, yannick mendez was cited and released for dui after the chp says he caused a crash on 8 80 near tennyson hayward before dawn friday, and most recently revelations that the fifth officer had improperly given meth pipe to an
informant in exchange for information. we really need to take a hard look at our hiring standards or backgrounding process. sergeant sean pritchard , head of the police union, says these officers facing allegations don't represent the hardworking officers in the department. some of these are absolutely very serious criminal allegations and again, if they're proven to be true, then these individuals do not belong in law enforcement. they are susceptible to all the evils in the world. just as we all are. and what happens when they become a place officer. they are held to a higher standard. this is san jose police chief anthony marra walking officer matthew dominguez out of the department after the four year veteran was charged with indecent exposure, the chief pledging to hold officers accountable. henry lee ktvu, fox two news. santa rosa couple suspected of causing the death of its 15 month old daughter has been released from jail. evan frost iq and madison bernard are accused of exposing their daughter to fentanyl. they
were arrested monday after the toddler's mother called to report that the baby was unresponsive. police say they found fentanyl all throughout the house, including the couple's bed, which they shared with their little baby. the two are facing charges of cruelty to a child. if toxicology reports find that fentanyl indeed played a role in the girl's death, prosecutors say they will determine if manslaughter or murder charges should apply. the oakland police department is one step closer to being released from federal oversight. a federal judge decided just today that the department can begin a one year probationary period to prove that it can sustain the required reforms that they've made during the past 20 years. the federal monitor said last month that opd now complies with 51 out of 52 of the necessary reform items. the department says it's still working on creating equal disciplinary measures for officers. that probationary period begins on june 1st and update now to a wild scene at a dui checkpoint that we showed you last week,
the san mateo county sheriff's office says it did track down the driver who was caught here on video backing up into a ditch and then speeding away from a checkpoint in san carlos. authorities say she is a 16 year old girl from newark. they say she could now face a number of charges, including reckless driving, hit and run and driving without a license. the honda pilot she was driving has been impounded for the next 30 days. gas prices while they are higher than ever here in the bay area, coming up a little later tonight, the governor's plan to try to offset the impact of inflation here in california. and we are tracking that weekend forecast. the weather is looking pretty good. it's warm enough. i'll have that forecast right after the break cleaning up san francisco the effort from city leaders to help businesses get rid of graffiti. for free and low riders could be coming back to the south bay at 10 30 tonight. the proposal in one city to repeal the ban on car cruising.

on camera. that's right. mike, the shop manager, hopes that the surveillance videos will help tax those responsible. the most recent attempted break in happened here at this coin shop along busy alhambra avenue. they dropped one crowbar forgot to pick it back up. and started working on my second interior door. jennifer shows me surveillance video of the attempted burglary at her family's store, martinez coin and jewelry exchange that took place tuesday around 3 40 in the morning. two thieves use crowbars to pry open the glass entrance store and a second interior door. a third suspect waited in a getaway car. you're mad. you're. you're via your violated. i mean, you're just angry. jennifer says that thieves were unable to pry open a third door, thanks to special reinforcement installed a week ago, she says that was done after their filet host store was severely damaged during an attempted burglary in march.
also in the early morning hours, it's your living. it's your livelihood. and now you've got to deal with this in the middle of the night, she says the filet host store remains closed. she's still waiting to get the doors replaced due to supply chain issues. jennifer says she suspects that some of the same people are involved in both burglary attempts. she says 13 to 15 other corn stores in the bay area has been hit by thieves since march. and that the suspect descriptions are similar that thieves were hoodies masks and use three ft. long bright yellow crowbars. it's not just a property crime, you know, we're talking six figure losses for some of these businesses. that's a lot of money and i want them arrested and i want him prosecuted to the highest extent of the law. jennifer says this is an image of the suspect vehicle in the martinez incident , four door sedan with paper license plate. it starts with the letter b and ends with an eight and zero, she says
martinez police have been responsive she and other business owners plan to meet with filet host city officials monday to get answers, mike hopefully, those tips can come in to help lead police to those who are responsible there. right amberleigh live for us a martinez amber. thank you. for that the covid death toll in the united states is nearing one million people. flags right now are flying at half staff at the white house and all federal government buildings through monday, more than 990,000 americans have now died from covid that, according to johns hopkins university, the coronavirus was declared a global pandemic back on march 11th 2020 at the time. 36 americans had died around the world more than 6.2 people have died. two senior executives are leaving twitter and the company has issued a hiring freeze ahead of the planned purchase by elon musk. one of the executives said on twitter that he was asked to leave the company while he's on paternity leave. the wall street journal reports that twitter ceo
said in a memo that the company is looking for ways to trim costs but is not looking at broadly offs. but the san francisco company may rescind job offers already made. shares of twitter were down 2% overall stocks ended the day mixed after another roller coaster day of trading. the dow was down 103 points at the close. the nasdaq tipped up six points and the s and p was down five. healthcare companies in retailers were higher. bitcoin though, fell nearly 3% more now on the coastal fire down in orange county, 20 homes destroyed containment now at 15% reporter ed lasko is live in lagoon and miguel tonight and ed, what are you hearing what he's seeing there. at the scene. mike it is still very much a surreal scene here a day after this firestorm roared through this neighborhood , you can see it behind me. smoke still blowing in the air. you have firefighters with a hose lines still hitting open flames and then you have the homes or or what's left of them smoldering, smoldering rubble. now, all of that the threat that fire command says, is why they
still have the mandatory evacuation orders in place for hundreds, this late hour. watch this. let me follow up on this in regards to the cause. i know they're still looking into it. but there was word that maybe a utility possibly could be involved there at the site of the ignition of that fire. very good question, michael. lot of people were asking fire command about that earlier, so cal edison utility company down here by as it's required, it has to notify the state's public utilities commission whenever there's a problem, and they notified them, saying there was a circuit activity a break in the circuit as they put it around the same time mid afternoon yesterday when this fire broke out so that's a possibility, although fire command says there's no sign of any down lines or anything that might have shown an ignition point in the canyon right here by the coast, and, of course, the flames blew up that canyon. fueled by 20 mile an hour winds
and many of these homes still, if you give you a quick look with mikey, many of these homes are still smoldering here because the embers got deep inside the rubble, and that's the problem that their fire chief says may keep the evacuation orders in place for days here because those embers could ignite days from now, and they could have another major fire on their hand, you know so much focus during these fires is on the destruction of it, and we said 20 homes destroyed but i keep thinking to myself. you know when you're watching the video ed of all the homes that were saved by the firefighters out there who rushed to that scene, and you know it was running hose line on the engine's ladder trucks were up. talk a little bit about that the firefight and what firefighters were able to accomplish when it came to saving homes. well you know, they talked about it. earlier the chief was saying they felt it's a success a success because they had over 1000 people. they had to get out of these winding streets and about maybe a half hour 20 minutes or so. it's more of the units moved through here and the fire was roaring over the hillside. visibility was down to almost zero. and yet they say, it's a success because they got
everybody out to your point. then the fire crews moved in here. yeah, they lost 20 homes and other 11 damaged. the chief says they don't like to lose one home. but the point is, they will take that any day over the loss of life. but it was a surreal scene here in that sense because they moved in the best they could. but as the chief pointed out, they were battling mother nature. and, as he sadly said, this time, mother nature one. they just couldn't deal with those winds. 20 miles an hour or so, and the fire roaring out of control. at last ghost live there in orange county. no it's been a very busy day for you. we appreciate you taking the time. thanks again. you bet. thanks, mike. well mike, as you know, a lot of that fire had to do you mentioned it earlier. a lot of the fire had to do with the terrain, right? i mean, the weather wasn't a huge issue. there was wind, like, like the gentleman said 20 miles an hour, maybe 30. not good but westerly winds. high humidity is low temperatures but the terrain that that that steep hillside with the winds funneling up at a rapid rate just consumed those homes quickly quickly, and that's a lot of what you know
that if you know topography in that area at all, you know how vertical that wall is right with that area is and that those flames just blew. the wind blew it right up there funneled. it sped up, and that's where we are much better conditions down there. now they're mopping up. the other thing, too, is with those homes, their giant giant homes and giant holes when you catch one of those on fire that's a lot of heat. that's a lot of flame. that's a lot of appropriate or or or bullets or ammunition or whatever. there's a lot in these homes. so i talked to somebody. i heard some of the firefights talking today about that. just these the size of these. those are giant homes really just being creating extremely hot fire, and that's why it's still smoldering tonight. temperatures today for us, we have lots of sixties some low seventies tomorrow. it's going to be warmer. the warmup didn't really start today. it started yesterday and it leveled off today. today was like yesterday. tomorrow we're going to see temperatures warmer back into the mid eighties or low eighties as we head into the next couple of days. this low pressure goes by today but in the high building so friday and saturday, temperatures are going
to be potentially in the upper eighties. on saturday, the warmest day on the weekend, so a nice friday saturday a little cooler on sunday, i'll put it all together. specific numbers when i see you back here in just a few minutes, bill, thank you knew attend. san francisco. businesses tagged with graffiti may soon be getting help to remove the graffiti for free. the board of supervisors introduced legislation that will allow businesses in commercial corridors to opt into a pilot program where the city's department of public works would paint over the graffiti. currently business owners are responsible for removing graffiti within 30 days or they face fines from the city francisco unified school district is poised to approve a new superintendent, matt wayne, has been superintendent at the hayward school district for six years. if the san francisco board finalizes his contract at its meeting on may 24th. he will start the new job on july 1st earlier today on the four, wayne told us some of his priorities. one top priority is just

occurred highs, according to triple a the average price of gas across the nine bay area counties is $5.98 a gallon. sam mateo counties is the highest at $6.06. san francisco, marin sonoma and napa counties are also seeing averages climb. to more than $6 a gallon. the remaining counties are just a few cents below that $6 mark, with the exception of solano county, where it's 5 85, triple a, says oakland, san jose and san francisco all recorded their highest average price for gas just today. with consumers certainly feeling the pinch tomorrow. governor gavin newsom plans to unveil details of an $18 billion inflation relief package. jana katsuyama is here now to explain who might benefit and why not everyone supports the idea, janna heather. if governor newsom's plan does go through than many californians could be getting inflation relief check in the mail. but not all lawmakers think that that is the best way to use funds. inflation has hit
people's budgets in many ways from getting groceries at the store. you can catch this on sale a lot of time to 79 3 99 regular prices now it's like 5 49 5 99 filling up the tank at the gas station. i used to be able to fill this truck where $80 back in the days. now it's at least 150 governor. gavin newsom wants to use some of the state's budget surplus for an $18.1 billion inflation relief package. the proposal includes $11.5 billion in aid to send $400 checks to car owners. 2.7 billion would go towards emergency rent relief 1.4 billion would help people with past due utility bills and $933 million would go to relief checks for some hospital and nursing home staff. the governor is also proposing $750 million for free public transit and other measures to pause the state's diesel sales tax. there would also be a waiver of childcare fees for low income families struggle right now, so
if it does happen, it will be very much appreciated. some people, however, opposed parts of newsom's plan. a group of democrats and republicans say the state should temporarily suspend the states 51 cent per gallon gas tax. and others say the age should only go to those in greatest need. if we're going to give money back to people, it should not be based on who owns a car. state senator scott wiener of san francisco says more of the surplus funds should go towards long term infrastructure projects. the embarcadero could be flooded the money bark. tunnels could be flooded up and down the state. we have major infrastructure needs. i think the impact would actually be felt relatively quickly is more likely it'll take longer to get it enacted, u c. berkeley economics professor jim wilcox says. while the relief will help low and middle income people who have been hit the hardest inflation is caused by more demand than available supplies, providing these extra subsidies. these extra checks will only increase the amount of
demand. and therefore if anything will tend to make the inflation rate a little bit higher. and governor newsom is set to explain not just this, but also his other budget revisions and a news conference tomorrow at 10 o'clock in the morning, heather jana katsuyama organizers of a proposition, meantime, calling for an 18 hour and $18 an hour minimum wage here in california say they have enough signatures to put it on the ballot in november. if this proposition passes the minimum wage for employers with more than 25 workers would increase by a dollar every year until reaching $18 in 2025. the initiative would also increase d to some parts of the state haven't even higher wage. a recall effort fails in the east bay, but organizers say they have the signatures they needed

the point of having it now? it seems that the san jose city council committee agrees with them. the low rider culture has been around since the 19 forties . but in san jose, there's been a ban on cruising in the city since 1992 on wednesday, a council committee voted unanimously to lift the ban. over the years, i was stopped dozens of times by the police, and nearly every time i was made to sit on the curb while i and my car were searched. and i was questioned about my presumed gang involvement. san jose city council member raul perales spoke candidly about his own experience with cruising and why he supported lifting the ban. the city says it cracked down on cruising to help curb gang violence and other criminal activity. community has evolved and they've changed. so now, everybody that's actually out here with the lowrider car with the restoration car, a custom car. they're all working people
. they're all taxpaying citizens of their businesses. still san jose police lieutenant steven donahue isn't on board with lifting the ban and during the committee meeting said this is a tool we use to ensure the safety of the public. and this is something that while right now it's not a tool being used very often. this is not something we want to lose out of our toolbox and the prohibition on cruising served as a tool. to perpetuate and give legal credibility to racial discrimination. and the enforcement and criminalization. that followed paralysis. cruising is not the same thing as a sideshow, diaz and other low riders participated in night market at the gordon biersch brewery thursday, showing off their custom made cars growing up. we always dreamed about having their own cars, and we do so to me, it's just relaxing and enjoying it and enjoying everybody's company. the fines and signage associated with cruising will be removed when
the band becomes official in junior mike monica peters live there in san jose lamonica. thank you for that. the building that was the site of the wta mass shooting in san jose is being demolished. the transit agency said. it made the decision so employees would never have to go back. this comes just before the anniversary of the tragedy one year ago that left 10 people dead. employee chris watts, who was there that day says the building is a reminder of the shooting and the close friends he lost. i think we've never ever got back to our regular lives. we have a sense of loss. um, hold that hasn't been filled. no word yet on what will replace the building, but employees hope there is some type of memorial for those who lost their lives and attempt to recall the mayor of antiochus has failed after organizers say they were victims of fraud. a campaign to recall antioch mere lamar thorpe was unable to submit the 9500 signatures needed to get the recall initiative on the november
