suspect in custody. robert lyles just got to the scene. what's the latest? >> reporter: well, what i can tell you here from the scene is that it is still quite an active crime scene. oakland police have an entire block here on west street blocked off from mcarth you are down to 37th. a large police presence because it was originally believed that the original taken into custody here may have had some kind of connection to that sex assault and robbery in the oakland hills earlier today. i have spoken with police on the scene. they tell me that that is not the case. in fact, who they have arrested here is an individual who is responsible for two armed robberies of pharmacies. both of them in oakland. one in the 4200 block of mcarthur. the other we are told in monte claire. a silver acura sedan. police are telling us that the chase of this vehicle started
somewhere around 55th and adeline and ended up here at mcarthur. speeds anywhere from 80 to 100 miles per hour. they also tell us that once the driver got here to the intersection of mcarthur and west street he attempted to go left but because this street is under construction he slid on the gravel, lost control and ended up here at the beacon gas station. michael cole was home at the time. here what he had to say. >> i was in the house and heard the car coming down the street and i looked out the window. this grey car buzzed by. zoom. i was like wow, what's going on? so i see a lot of smoke and i'm going for a guy to be driving this fast there must be some police behind him. >> reporter: now two reiterate oakland police are confirming to us on the scene that the driver of this vehicle was the
only individual involved. they do believe that he is the primary suspect for two armed robberies of pharmacies once again. one in the 4200 block of mcarthur. the other in monte claire. police tell us as they searched the vehicle they found items in the back of the car that match items taken from each of those pharmacies. they are telling us again that individual is in custody. we are still on the scene gathering more information and we will certainly bring you much more as it becomes available. for now, dana, back to you. >> all right. robert, this is allen. just a quick question here. at one point they thought this suspect might be involved in an early morning home invasion robbery in oakland. is that still a theory? yes or no. >> reporter: no, allen. as i addressed at the top there was a large police presence here. police have certainly been on high alert because of that sex assault and that home invasion robbery. certainly a lot of police on the scene. but they tell us they were on heightened alert as well because they had had those two
armed robberies. they apparently also had a vehicle description and that acura apparently matches the description of what they had heard either outside one of those pharmacies or very near the pharmacy. so they had been on the look out for it. spotted it near 55th and adeline and that's when the police place began. >> thank you for clearing that up. we want more on the incident early in the morning in oakland hills. we go there for details on that. kristin? >> reporter: allen, the suspect in a sex assault and robbery here in the oakland hills still at large this evening. the incident actually happened down the block here on wilton drive. authorities are investigating whether or not the suspect then ran and escaped on one of these trails. a quiet trail in redwood regional park that neighbors fear served as an escape route for a brazen burglar. dogs searched the neighborhood to no avail.
>> we have lived here for 40 years. >> reporter: never hearing like something like this happening. >> we are anxious and angry about it. >> reporter: police say it started with the barking of dogs around 3 a.m. the 38-year-old woman who lives in the house got up to see what was wrong and was confronted by an intruder. >> she was robbed of some perm items, some cash and a sexual assault did occur. >> reporter: the suspect had a gun and the entire assault happened while the woman's family slept. >> there were two children in the house. they were not harmed. they were not in danger. they were asleep. >> reporter: neighbors told me off camera it is part of an alarming trend in this normally quiet neighborhood. burglars breaking into cars and homes brazenly sometimes in broad daylight making their escape on foot through a tangle of wilderness where it is tough to track them. >> we just hope the police are effective and whoever it is is returned to wherever he came from. >> reporter: now all residents could do is stick together. >> if you know who your
neighbor is it makes all the difference. >> reporter: and police only able to give us a very vague description of that suspect. some neighbors told us that they will be ramping up some of their neighborhood watch efforts in the hope of catching this guy. allen? >> all right. thanks. swastkika grafitti and students in white clothing. they are recruiting new young members. many students don't feel safe on campus. len ramirez has the report. >> reporter: only about five students out of the 900 that go to socal high school. they have been intimidating their fellow students and are associated with a white supremacy group. at first the signs of a white
supremacy element was thought to be a joke. it went on. one of the few african-american students on campus felt increasingly threatened. >> it makes me feel unsafe here. >> reporter: it got little attention from high school teachers. but when a students showed up wearing white pride gang attire school officials had enough. >> we are not going to comment on the individual disciplinary actions taken against kids but there were some students suspended. certainly a lot of other students have been spoken to and their parents have been spoken to. >> reporter: five students suspended but will still be allowed to participate in graduation ceremonies. superintendent gary bloom says the seeds may be coming from off campus gangs looking to the student body to find new
members. >> we have been informed by local law enforcement that there is an active white power or white pride based gang in the region that they believe is making recruitment efforts in the region to school-aged kids. we are not aware of any specifics of our students at this particular site. >> reporter: so cal which is 60% white, 30% african-american and 10% other ethnicites. >> i'm embarrassed that they see socal as a white supremacy school. not everyone is like that. i'm truly embarrass ad. that's all i can say. >> reporter: some of the suspended students have been making statements saying they are not members of any group. but, dana, still, the superintendent says that the reason for the suspensions is to send a message that there are consequences for identifying with a hate group even if you're not really
serious about it there will be those consequences. >> it is not funny. len ramirez in santa cruz. thank you. more trouble tonight for some san francisco undercover police officers. another two dozen felony drug cases are being dropped because of the credibility of those officers under investigation for questionable search practices. linda yee on the new charges brought against those officers. linda? >> reporter: allen, the public defender releasedded yet another video today. a video that he claims shows a pattern of alleged police misconduct. now, these are the same officers that are now under investigation by internal affairs and the fbi. the video shows an undercover officer on the left of the screen approaching a suspected drug dealer on a tenderloin street corner. what is seen in the video disputes what the undercover officers wrote in the police report. >> raised his right hand to his
mouth and spit it into his hand. that never happened and the video clearly contradicts the officer's sworn testimony. >> reporter: the public defender also brought in a couple whose son was arrested for drug possession. they accused the undercover officers of stealing items in their home when they searched for evidence. >> we didn't see any drugs. they took a couple boxes. items disappeared that night. >> reporter: they claim the stolen items included two ipods, a camera and cell phone. their son's case was 26 more dismissed today by the d.a. because of questions involving the officers' credibility. they are the same ones already being investigated after being accused of illegal searches, excessive force, theft and perjury. the d.a. was their police chief during
the cases now in question. he has dismissed drug cases because of the officer-alleged conduct. but prosecutors will be reexamining all the evidence. >> we know people involved in selling drugs today may be involved in crimes of violence at another time and we know a lot of those individuals are not necessarily crime free. unfortunately, the problem that we are having with a lot of these people is that procedurely the system broke down on the way the arrests took place. >> reporter: meantime the police chief told cbs5 the latest video is not a new revelation. it is already been investigated by the office of citizens complaints and the officers will face a hearing. >> oh, yes, there will be discipline in this case. >> up to dismissal? >> no, the finding by the o.c.c. does not suggest that they were dishonest. >> reporter: well, the actions of 14 undercover officers are now under investigation.
that investigation tonight, allen, continues. >> linda yee in san francisco. thank you. one of three people injured in an apartment explosion has died. 35-year-old paul lom from san jose died of those injuries yesterday. ar saturday's explosion destroyed one unit at a complex in livermore. two other people are in critical condition till. the cause of the explosion still being investigated but it is believed to be drug related. it is a problem we have been reporting on for years. now some action by the state of california. how many instances of handycapped abuse they found in one day. already a huge tourist draw. what's behind a new tragedy to sell california wine? do you love fish? if so now is your chance to help them out a little. the rare opportunity for wildlife lovers to join forces with the fish & game. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
