have these two arrests like we did today add the other ones you have the makings of a crisis with the santa clara county main jail. this would bring to five the total number of correctional deputies that have been placed under arrest in the past month add to that another three that have been placed on administrative leave for other purposes. the two arrests today the most serious was ryan sanders. he is accused of illegally accessing a criminal database. sources tell me that mr. saunders does have ties to a criminal street gang the hell's angels although there's no evidence, stress that at this point, no evidence that he was accessing this information and turning it over to the hell's angels. here's what the sheriff's department had to say on that today. >> it's a criminal database with personal and information concerning arrests, um, our investigation led us to believe that correctional deputy ryan
6:01 pm
saunders had access the that database and had no lawful reason to do so. >> reporter: mr. saunders is being charged with several misdemeanor charges as a result of this arrest today. the other deputy that was placed under arrest is mark navaretti accused of felonies arising out of a workers' comp. claim. apparently he had injured himself playing softball and tried to claim that he injured himself on the job. he had been under investigation for months. both deputies will be on administrative leave since september 17. live in san jose, len ramirez, kpix 5. >> len, it seems like we're hearing about these investigations and arrests almost every day. what can we expect and what's going on down there? >> reporter: what's happening is that there appears to be a major housecleaning going on with the correctional deputies over at the main jail. now, as i mentioned before this
6:02 pm

6:03 pm
why this place has been destroyed. cate. >> reporter: that's right, ken. we are told the problem is worse during halloween so right now, neighbors want a solution. the church that manages this cemetery needs resources because what's going on here at st. catherine's has been going on for far too long. >> it's not good at all. >> not too good. that's disrespectsful. >> reporter: in place of flowers broken glass. this tomb is in pieces. >> they just need to realize that these people are here for a reason and they need to respect that. >> reporter: perched on a steep hillside st. katherine st. catherine of siena cemetery. imagine finding headstones knocked over. not only that, tombs unearthed desecrated broken into pieces! and neighbors in the area tell
6:04 pm
me this has been going on here for years. martinez police say they don't know who is causing this mess but neighbors say it's teenagers. >> kids go in there and they drink and they do whatever kids do but they don't have any respect for the dead. >> just something to do. bored. and out there just to do stuff. >> reporter: st. catherine's says they are aware of the vandalism but the parish doesn't have money to police the area. only one volunteered to keep up the grounds. the rest falls on the families of those buried here. if what you saw was bad, one neighbor told me that a teen admitted to him that he dug up graves to see bodies just because he was curious. in martinez, cate caugiran, kpix 5. >> the church says the cemetery gets hit hardest around halloween. so they have hired some private security to keep watch. across northern california today, the feds and local law enforcement went after suspected gang members. the raids happened in
6:05 pm
sacramento, vallejo and antioch and oakland. in oakland, officers recovered three semi-automatic rifles, a 100-round ammunition drum and more than a pound of marijuana from a house in west oakland a block from mcclymonds high school. in all five people were arrested including one in oakland. new at 6:00 a san jose man is under arrest tonight accused of robbing a woman and then dragging her down the street with his car. police say timothy williams swiped the victim's purse out of her parked car yesterday on turn bridgeway. when the victim saw what happened, she tried to grab her purse back out of the car. and he took off dragging her nearly 300 feet. >> no one else in their right mind would do that. that's insane. >> the 50-year-old victim had serious injuries but is expected to survive. police say witnesses helped catch williams by getting the car's license plate. he was tracked down by a s.w.a.t. team hours later. one witness says the victim was doing an errand for her church
6:06 pm
at the time. new at 6:00 thousands of people who work in san jose thought they would be getting a raise on january 1 but just found out they won't be. it's all because of gas prices. maria medina joins us now with the explanation. what's happening? >> reporter: veronica, this is all based on an ordinance that was passed a couple of years ago. so next year, the minimum wage will stay the same at $10.30 and some say that's unfair. how do you live on $10.30 an hour? >> stretch it out. it's hard. >> reporter: she struggles to make ends meet from her san jose fast food joint. >> i'm a cook. >> reporter: sometimes she can't pay her bills and emma is a mother of four. >> it's loans, extra hours, extra shifts. pulling ends here and there to do what you got to do just to make ends meet. >> reporter: now she has
6:07 pm
learned her minimum wage pay won't go up. voters passed an ordinance two years ago that allows for a jump in minimum wage if the consumer price index goes up. but in the last 12 months, the cpi went down when gas prices took a drop in august. although emma lives in one of the most expensive cities in the country, the cpi is a university city average. >> do you think that's fair? >> no, it's not fair. it's getting harder and harder. minimum wage is just not going to cut it anymore. >> the mechanical operations the existing ordinance is not helping. >> reporter: mayor sam liccardo says the ordinance isn't working. he wants to see an increase in minimum wage throughout santa clara county. >> there's no question that the minimum wage at its current level is not enough to enable anyone to survive in this valley. >> reporter: for thousands like emma, every penny counts when you're making minimum wage. she says any increase in pay would help. >> it would help. it would help. it would extremely help not only me as a single mother but
6:08 pm
a lot of people it would help. >> reporter: and the mayor's working with other mayors to try to get the minimum wage to jump throughout santa clara county. this is the first time since the ordinance was passed that the minimum wage has not gone up. live in san jose, maria medina, kpix 5. >> the minimum wage will remain at $10.30 an hour. well, apple is scooping up more silicon valley real estate in an unprecedented expansion. its latest real estate deal a massive complex in sunnyvale housing 4,000 workers. the campus at central expressway and wolfe road will have a curvy outline and is keeping with the look of the spaceship campus. today chopper 5 saw the progress on the cupertino building that will become apple's main headquarters. it's a few miles away from the sunnyvale complex. and 12,000 employees are set to move in next year. rounding out that land grab apple just secured a major
6:09 pm
campus in north san jose near the airport. combined with a previous purchase, apple would have room for 18,000 workers in north san jose. new at 6:00 a look at the bay area's newest mass transit system. the smart train and tonight for the first time we are going to take you along for the ride. jeffrey schaub takes us on board and jeffrey, this has been a long time coming. >> reporter: concern, i first started covering this story in the 1980s. i covered it a number of times here when i was at channel 5. and nobody thought this was going to happen. it was just going to be impossible. well, they started doing test runs on the tracks. so it really is happening. [ horn ] >> reporter: for the first time in half a century, people in sonoma and marin counties will be able to travel by rail. >> really smart as it provides transportation alternative to people who are commuting to work who have to suffer through
6:10 pm
pretty intense congestion on a daily basis. >> reporter: the sleek state-of- the-art two-car train also travel up to 79 miles an hour. >> smart is using -- these are multiple units. they are a lot like a light rail train like bart but they are bigger and heavier and carry more people. >> reporter: for three years, smart has been laying tracks redesigning crossings, building new bridges and now testing the trains. smart trains will operate at ten stations from the sonoma county airport in santa rosa through rohnert park, petaluma, novato, san rafael, and with later extensions to cloverdale and the larkspur ferry terminal. the trains will run every 30 minutes in both directions during rush hour. and the trip between the sonoma airport in san rafael just over an hour. smart cars are also equipped
6:11 pm
with technology called positive train control. >> what that requires is that we prevent derailments in curves from trains going too fast that we prevent trains from running into each other and that we keep trains at low speeds in work zones. >> reporter: each railcar features power outlets and wi- fi, cushioned seatings with tables. here's something you won't find on bart or caltrain, a real snack bar. >> would you like a coffee? >> i would love it! you can have that on the way in. and in the afternoon -- >> how about a doled cold beer? >> sounds great. >> reporter: and then there's the view. vineyards and rolling hills. something you might not find on a highway. well, guys, i got to tell you that this is all supposed to go into service in late 2016. and we're told there are going to be celebrations up and down the lane. >> you have been working this story since the '80s and marin,
6:12 pm
sonoma, they don't have bart. so this was more than smart to get this going but why did it take so long? >> they got money five years ago a tax initiative and they tried several times before that but couldn't get the dough. >> they serve peanuts with that beer or -- >> yeah. you're going to be able to get that, too. >> yeah. >> sounds good. jeff, good to see you again. >> thanks. well, they survived a "valley fire" but now these lost or abandon tests are up against the clock. the deadline to save them from a grim fate. one minute he is in school the next arrested for killing his family in their sierra cabin. tonight you will hear from some shocked classmates who call the teen a model citizen. >> and a california community desperate for water. but believe it or not they are dreading el nino. why a downpour could actually make things worse. >> nothing but sunshine in the bay area today. pretty big change from the isolated thunderstorms that we had this time yesterday. but there is a new rain chance

6:15 pm
the "valley fire" in lake county may be history but many animals are still separated from their owners stuck in shelters. the clock is ticking fast for people to pick up their pets. emily turner reports. >> at first she couldn't eat because of how here's she was around the muzzle. >> reporter: these faces are enough to break your heart but the fate is even more depressing. after these animals survived the "valley fire," there's the possibility they might not survive lake county animal control. >> that's what i thought too is that they are here for so long and no one claims them that they are going to either get rid of, adopt them out.
6:16 pm
i didn't want that to happen. >> reporter: crystal huggins made sure she claimed her dog killer after the fire but if she hadn't, he would have faced the same deadline as these dogs and cats. they have until october 17 to be claimed or they go into the regular system like any other animal to be adopted or euthanized. >> everything is going to be done working with the other organizations to try to make sure all these animals get re- homed. >> reporter: but the lake county animal shelter has a 46% kill rate so out of 50 dogs, 30 cats and livestock, almost half of them will die if they go unclaimed. lake county has already started working to avoid that but the clock is ticking for these four- legged survivors. >> it's bad because it's like why do you have a pet if you are not going to look for it if you are not going to, like, look for it after the fire after, like, a disaster or something and your pet is going to get killed and adopted away like you don't care, like, it's
6:17 pm
really depressing. >> reporter: i have spoken to groups to try to keep these animals alive. emily turner, kpix 5. in castro valley, a chaotic scene at an eye doctor office. check this out. a woman crashes her car right into the waiting room. the accident happened just after 7 a.m. off castro valley boulevard. chp says the driver sheared a light pole during a turn hit a utility box before flipping the car over and then on the roof running it into the office. the building was closed at the time. officers say the woman was taken to eden medical center with major injuries. the latest drought report is out and california's status hasn't changed despite some rain this week. that dark red shows nearly half of the state is in exceptional drought. the most intense level. and tonight we have a reminder that el nino isn't necessarily a solution and could even present some problems.
6:18 pm
all year we have been following the water struggles around lagrange, california, a community right in between two large lakes yet struggling for water. first, the drought left water levels dangerously low. and when they went drilling for relief, some of the ground water turned out to be salty. it's not getting easier. as wilson walker shows us the next problem could be the rain. >> i don't know. it's apocalyptic. it's just crazy. >> reporter: even after four years of drought, the pictures are still kind of unbelievable. >> it's dramatic and it's just empty right now. >> reporter: here on lake mcclure people have been chasing the drought downhill well past the intake filthers that were left high and dry about two years ago. >> we connect it up with pipes and cables. >> reporter: there's another problem looming over this
6:19 pm
troubled lake courtesy of the same thing that could provide relief el nino. >> if we have a huge amount of rain it's going to wash an amazing amount of dirt and silt and debris into the water really quickly. >> reporter: the drought hasn't just left us with less water. the exposed soil surrounding this lake has been so dry, so sun baked for so long, it's hardly even soil at all. >> it turns to this powder that is it's so light that it becomes airborne in an instant. all you have to do is drive by it. this is a very, very fine particulate matter. >> reporter: add just one serious downpour and that dust will turn this reservoir into a giant mud puddle clogging equipment and leaving people here with a full lake that provides virtually no water. >> it makes it virtually impossible to treat the water. it's like trying to chlorinate a dirty pool. >> reporter: that's something we keep coming back to with el nino. not as simple as yes or no rain
6:20 pm
or shine. more of an equation with variables. for our reservoirs, as to how much rain we are going to get, when is it going to get here and how hard is that rain going to fall? >> give it a drink. let it soak it up a little bit and then ask it if it's okay to take on more. >> reporter: another lesson in how bad things are gotten even el nino delivers a wet winter four years of drought may continue to haunt us from the ground beneath our feet. >> we want this lake full but at the same time we want mother nature to be reasonable in the way she delivers el nino. >> reporter: on lake mcclure, wilson walker, kpix 5. >> yeah. it's another reminder that we are not in control. you better sit down and get what you can get. >> we talk about average rainfall. how often does average rainfall actually happen? average is usually a drought followed by a flood you divide by two and somehow get this number we can't acquire and the problem is now we may make up a lot of the drought over the next couple of months but it might be too much for some
6:21 pm
locations. what are we asking for here? we want some rain. and el nino says historically that the strong el nino we'll get rainfall but in some parts of california too much rain too quickly may turn out to be a problem but we have dug ourselves such a hole we need as much rain as we can get preferably slowly throughout the entire winter. we'll see. it's only october 2. today was warm. rain is gone, sunshine is back. 88 livermore. concord 86. san jose 81. we are at 74 in san francisco. lots going on this weekend. hardly strictly bluegrass festival already happening. it will continue tomorrow and sunday. a little breezy sunday and a 30% chance of a shower sunday morning. then we have the 49ers game coming up. they are hosting -- they got the game sunday evening at 1:25 hosting the green bay packers. aaron rodgers who the 9ers didn't draft.
