a new kind of weight loss challenge that is really paying off. why is especially a good bet for men. good evening we have big breaking news in the sierra lamar's case tonight. the 15 year-old sierra lamar's has been missing now for two months but nice investigators tell us that she was murdered and that
they have the man in custody. he is a 21 year-old man from morgan hill and works at the safeway store their his name is incident garcia thorez he was booked into santa clara county jail facing charges of murder and kidnapping. we are expecting a news conference in just moments again sierra lamar's police believe that they had arrested her killer. new speaker we have a check now with robert lyles who was at the shares department as we speak and has the very latest on this case. let's get right to share florissant she's actively giving updates on the arrests. this car is connected the red car is connected. that is a car that belongs to anton garcia. can you tell us who is in custody he was booked earlier this
evening and we're continuing the investigation. willie disinformation tomorrow what we have because we do want to the un on everything we can solicit the four small but we have a physical evidence that the next that two. part of that is elevenses apparently this 1990's red volkswagen jeddah you tell us more about that and who with the registrar of the vehicle is? he is the registered owner and we're looking for anyone who had seen where that car was still need more intimate ones know there's more information were there any witnesses? your reports that it was dna evidence can you talk to us about that? it's important to let you know the have made an arrest a person has been booked into jail. why
this evening? he was arrested because is that we thought that the arrest should be done. and public safety is our main concern we don't want anyone else to be hurt. we don't anymore little girls taken. this is very very difficult for the family the family has been very very supportive all along they understand we kept them apprised of everything that's happened with the investigation we think it's important that they know it's very difficult for them tomorrow when we did a press conference the family will be there. did we tell us about garcia thorez? again we will address that tomorrow he has been under surveillance and will fill you in on the details when we did a press conference tomorrow. he's been charged with murder that means that we believe that we have probable cause to believe he committed the kidnapping and murder of sierra lamar's. and once again you said
that the physical evidence you're not commenting on whether there is dna but did you find evidence in that red jetta? was serving have evidence in the case of evidence from many sources and again we will pop the tomorrow we have not found syriac we're asking the public to continue to look for her into finder for us. is there anything in the car to suggest that sierra lamar's still alive? i think we ought to fill even on the details tomorrow but no. so you cannot plea that she is alive? for charging the suspect with murder. can you tell us how the rest affected? if he does give us until tomorrow morning it's been a long day for all of us it a long day for detectives will have a family here tomorrow and will be better prepared than we are right now and we will release everything we can release you. detectives have worked nonstop around the clock. did we their lot of heroes in this apartment detectives are the heroes the person who first showed up at the scene is a hero
by new that this was not a runaway child ends our search and rescue team that found the evidence that they found so early in to the investigation and a lot of people have worked very hard and have done a wonderful job. is this from a suspect? i think we're done ok. that is the latest year for the st. clair county sheriffs are again the confirm that a 21 year-old from san my team has been arrested and charged with murder and kidnapping in connection with the appearance of a 50 year-old sierra lamar's as you just heard the sheriff departments say they're not commenting on whether or not there is evidence found inside that vehicle but she is saying he's been arrested in charge of murder and they do not believe that sierra lamar's is alive we're expecting a press conference as an inch and tomorrow for greater details on exactly how his arrest was affected and more important is just how long they had the suspect under surveillance 9 and
led them to move in with an arrest at night but that is the latest from outside the santa clara county sheriff department but see you. one quick question and that is conference is under way when before we started on the air did you happen to mention what they suspected any connection between the suspect in sierra lamar's? she would not comment on the relationship that may or may not have had to get their sea again stated that she would not comment on what evidence is collected either from that 1990's red jetta or if any of the evidence dna what have you met suspects now under arrest in any of the belongings found with sierra lamar's. committee good point because the police department they had a difficult job and they're promising they tell us nothing the please do
surveillance they tell us nothing but police now make an arrest and it is illegal as the guys name and nothing else. it's a little frustrating the ask for the public's health and then they give us nothing. he absolutely right that i think he will for the press conference started mid that there were some issues that they had mistakes if you will that they made particularly in the leasing of the nation about the vehicle they had that vehicle at the entire time now why they didn't release more information about the registered owner will hopefully we will file greater details about as a martyr in the press conference. the suspect as rubber mentioned was arrested at the safeway in morgan hill pet store is on tenants avenue by monterey road and that's where garcia thorez the suspect apparently worked as you mentioned earlier detectives say they have charged him with murder and kidnapping and juliet goodrich has been also working the case right now at the scene of the arrest and she'd just
talked with one girl who saw the whole us go down tonight ribbon to go to julia as soon as she is set up if you remember this case it goes back to the morning of march 16th and that is when sierra lamar's disappeared suez on her way to school in the morning and that is the last anybody has seen it of her. to get good grades at the arrest site right now has some information from there. degrees when the parking lot here at the safeway as you said on tenants in morgan hill and this is where it all went down we talk to witnesses whose take that around 5 billion 6:00 tonight they saw dozens of cop cars right outside the safeway one eyewitness tells me that she actually saw guns drawn and officers at bringing out a suspect from inside the safe way she had no idea what was happening she works in a nearby yard shot and spas maybe it was a shock after being arrested and no idea that the
connection was to sierra lamar's here's your interview. it was like 530 and we just saw a bunch of cops around and couldn't see anyone else but the cops in the had guns drawn and just took someone this way. did waves at that point to know who we might be. thomas do know but the sierra lamar's case and how big is a bit in the bay area? do know her? did we didn't know her and went to the same house clusters as can scary. obviously a lot of buzz here we're trying to get more information on the suspect to find out if he was an employee in past employees i went inside to talk to the manager and they say it this time they cannot address the media with any of those questions one woman came to me and said i can't believe that he was arrested and knew him so a lot of the buses circulating about the suspect again he was arrested at the safeway and morgan hill and will certainly have more to mission
at a news conference tomorrow morning live in morgan hill juliet could receive as five. of course will keep you updated on the story through the evening if anything breaks and also on cbs sf dhaka, we reporter in the bay area crime wave has been going on for awhile thieves stealing people's mark bonds but in all those stories we never heard it something like this. the berkeley police chief ordered a number of his officers to work overtime to find one teenagers still in iphone is the cut tells us that teenagers was the chief's son. this and want to give police the benefit of the doubt we would hope it would be such an effective administrator it is a came from outside of berkeley but when she learns that he ordered for detectives to track down his sons missing cellphone and worked two hours of overtime on the taxpayers'
dime saw the body seems to be bringing with him it is a the practice of privilege. that he is the chief he's got the power is going to do whatever he wants according to the berkeley police department officers regularly search for stolen electronics these investigations can involve a supervisor and multiple officers depending on the circumstances of the case and the location of the signal. police also admit they filed police reports on the missing phone. doing things off the books it's a bad sign. remember this? the least he showed up at my door and is something that may happen in the 1950's and some other countries where journalists aren't as protected as they are here at least she is being investigated and for sending one of his own officers back in march because he didn't like his story. andrew believes
these recent actions point to a bigger issue with berkeley pd. we need them to do with that in the booths open policies. the search that stolen cellphone went as far away as north oakland's and a source tells the san francisco chronicle that as many as 10 officers participate in the search the berkeley pd can only confirm that four officers were paid overtime and in the hands that phone was never found. live in berkeley as the cut cbs five top-level judges accused of exercising poor judgment the million dollar conference in a valley that you are paying for. why some frequent fliers may be getting overcharged for weeks. may be one of the greatest senior pranks of time needed bay area girls in his yearbook stunt has become an internet sensation. ,,,,,,,,,,,,
