6:02 pm
crimes like these. >> reporter: it's widespread. i talked to one postal man who said on his route out of the 10 cluster boxes he served 6 having compromised. that means there is only four left and it's only a matter of time. the postal service wants to get ahead of the game now. take a look at this security video. postal investigators certainly are. you can see what looks to be a woman pull up in a van to a cluster box. when she walks around to the back, you know it's not hers. investigators say she is a crook and at least one part of the rash of mailbox thefts in the vallejo, american canyon area. >> she should be in jail. yes. >> reporter: that's an easy answer. >> yeah. [ laughter ] >> reporter: a vallejo homeowner posted this video on youtube from april 16 in the middle of the night. it even shows the crook walk away with an armful of mail. we showed it to postal inspectors looking to solve the case. >> these are serious crimes being committed and this is
6:03 pm
good information for you. it's evidence that we can use to identify and arrest these individuals. >> reporter: so now investigators are trying to get in touch of the owner of the video and asking for the public's help for identifying the person in it. so far there are have been 23 break-ins since february and there are more like this investigators say they didn't know about that need to be reported. >> it is critical. it helps us identify the individuals, their vehicle and again, this is a federal offense. >> if your mailbox has been hit contact the postal service. you don't call the police. you call the postal service to report the crime. they have their own investigators to tackle the crime. emily turner, kpix 5. >> the punishment for mail theft is five years in prison and $250,000 fine. new at 6:00 some of the sillicon valley's brightest are urging the federal government not to put the brakes on self- driving car.

[ laughter ] the point simpson was making was serious. >> we're talking about technology that can kill people if it goes wrong. that's why it's important that safety provisions be in place. >> reporter: google proposes driverless cars that are completely automated, no steering wheel, no pedals. simpson said not having human drivers be capable of taking over the wheel or brakes if something goes wrong is foolhardy. >> they want to take the driver out of the equation.
6:05 pm

6:09 pm
says the union is asking for just over an 18% raise over three years. >> it's a fiscal impossibility. >> reporter: they are offering 7% over two years and full time instructors would see money in the bank account as of july first. critics are skeptical and say that would be one-time bonus money not a salary increase. >> can't pay your rent with money you're not going to get in the future. [ chanting ] >> they are the ones that teaching me and then i'm going to get to transfer and go to uc- davis because of city college!! whoo!!! [ screaming ] >> reporter: city college is facing rapidly declining enrollment with the loss of more than 10,000 students in just four years. on a day that was supposed to be the first day of registration for fall classes, the strike isn't great timing. >> this does impact our registration. we are hoping it's not a long- term impact. >> we have the power! >> reporter: that's the year that both sides keep bringing
6:10 pm
up. it's because everybody took major paycuts this year and everyone can still gripe about it because no one not even the chancellor is making as much money as back then. in san francisco, jackie ward, kpix 5. >> contract negotiations will continue next month with a neutral factfinder. we researched base faculty salaries. uc-berkeley $56,700. uscf $57,600. a lot of questions about the future of uc-davis chancellor linda katehi. the academic senate recently confirmed that uc president janet napolitano urged her to step down but in an email today the chancellor wrote she is 100% committed to staying put. several students want her to go. even if she resigned, i would still be here and still be angry because this is -- she is part of the problem. she is not the end of it. >> calls for her resignation

started back in 2011 when protestors were pepper sprayed by a campus police officer. she was also criticized when the university spent thousands of dollars to fix bad press from that incident. warriors play-off run continues about an hour from now over at oracle arena and without steph curry on the court for game 5, the rockets are getting a little cocky it seems. sports director dennis o'donnell with the guarantee that one rockets player made about taking on the "dubs" tonight. good. i want to see this get personal. >> reporter: well, bulletin board material, that's for sure, ken. but you mentioned steph curry is not here. he will miss two weeks with a sprained knee. but i want to show you what it's like. so curry typically comes out through this tunnel. right? and that area is mobbed with fans. you got some fans there but you cannot get close to this area when steph curry is playing. so that's a notable difference. that's also the hallway where
6:12 pm
steph curry shoots his 40-foot baseline shot that everyone goes crazy over. now, if there's not enough motivation without curry for the warriors to win, rockets guard jason terry provided a little more. >> i'm guaranteeing it. i mean, if i don't then what? i mean, it's a loss, right? so, you know, i guarantee victory because that's what it's going to take. that's gonna be a long flight for them to come back home to houston. >> reporter: and there you go. [ chuckling ] this might be the 38-year-old's final shot at winning another nba title and it's probably a desperate attempt to save the dysfunctional rockets season. either way, the warriors gave a collective eye roll when asked to respond. [ pause ] >> good for him. [ laughter ] >> i don't care. i mean, see what happens. ha. now? i'm not gonna make any
6:13 pm
statements. you know, i guess he is trying to rally the troops or whatever he is trying to do. so i don't really give a [ censored ] >> reporter: so i guess he will take any advantage he can get without steph curry, that is an advantage for the houston rockets. and ken, about an hour ago on the 5:00 news i told you shaun livingston is johnny on the spot but really at a press conference a few moments ago steve kerr clarified saying, andre iguodala is really his number one point guard when steph curry is not in the line- up. so it's the andre iguodala show. warriors win tonight? they move to round 2. live from oracle arena, i'm dennis o'donnell. see you later in sports. >> thank you. the hunt for the suspect who shot a bay area pregnant woman in the head. he is armed and dangerous and still on the run tonight. some new details on what may have pushed him over the edge. >> a chilling threat left at the home where a bay area couple was murdered. now the search is heating up for the son who vanished without a trace. >> and circling helicopters

6:27 pm
are then having to access the, um, injured party by foot. >> reporter: yesterday a bike manufacturer delivered four new mountain bikes to two fire stations in the district. china camp volunteers say there are miles of trails with no distance markers. so when injured people call for help, they often have a hard time explaining exactly where they are. >> they can say we're on such- and-such a trail but they don't know where on that trail. >> so we'll put the medical ex- on the bikes when they arrive on scene and get them up the trying, putting the medics on the bikes, so they can access the patients faster and that hiking in. >> reporter: it will take a few weeks for paramedics to be trained but then they will hit the trail to help those who -- well, hit the trail. in san rafael, john ramos, kpix 5. coming up in our next half- hour, shake-ups on the campaign trail. ted cruz turning to carly fiorina to save his candidacy while bernie sanders cuts

6:32 pm
and thought, after a great deal of consideration and prayer, i have come to the conclusion that if i am nominated to be president of the united states, that i will run on a ticket with my vice-presidential nominee, carly fiorina. [ applause ] >> cruz and his former rival and tech executive hugged it out during a rally today in indianapolis. but the decision might be too late for cruz's campaign. trump is racking up the delegates. 961 at this time! after yesterday's sweep he is on track to clinch the nomination before the summer's convention. during a policy speech in washington today, trump focused on foreign affairs. >> i'd like to talk today about how to develop a new foreign policy direction for our country, one that replaces randomness with purpose. >> that uncharacteristically formal address is billed as the first in a series of policy
6:33 pm
speeches before next tuesday's primary in indiana. >> meanwhile on the other side bernie sanders is shrinking his campaign staff after losing four out of five east coast states to hillary clinton last night. sanders announced that he has sent out hundreds of layoffs in an interview with the "new york times." the latest delegate count has hillary clinton with a near insurmountable lead over bernie sanders. kpix 5's political analyst melissa caen is here with us tonight. sanders' staff downplaying the cuts. um, but -- but this is something we saw coming, uhm. you cannot sustain -- it costs money to run a campaign. >> reporter: a lot of money. it looks like the cuts that he is making are in states that have already voted. right? so basically what he is doing is acknowledging, we're not going to be back here probably in a general election so we can cut those staff positions and focus on the states in particular california that have yet to vote. so what that indicates is
6:34 pm
number one he definitely is going to stay in it at least until june. some of people think he may drop out but he still has staff and money and talking about issues. >> and ted cruz naming carly fiorina as vice president. what do you make of this strategy? is this something that bernie sanders should try? [ laughter ] >> maybe he should announce a vice-presidential candidate. the first thing to know about cruz's announcement today is that it's working already!! that's what we're talking about. we're not talking about how he can't win and his campaign is disintegrating. we are talking about him. that's why. two other points. carly fiorina has been a consistent voice in opposition to donald trump since the debates even after she dropped out. she has been in this war with donald trump. [ chuckling ] and if cruz needs a proxy to go on television and radio stations and make the
6:35 pm
case against donald trump, she is a good person to pick. the last thing i'll point out is that so she did lose in 2010 to barbara boxer here in california by a lot. but she did get the republican nomination. she got the republican nomination by winning 56% of the vote so remember, she might have a little love left over here in california and he is probably banking on that to help him here in california. >> there is no doubt that donald trump, hillary clinton are waging war -- they need the women's vote. listen to trump for a minute. >> i think the only card she has is the woman' card. she has nothing else going. >> mr. trump accused me of playing the "woman card." if fighting for women's healthcare and paid family leave and equal pay is playing the "woman card," then deal me in [ screaming ] saturday night saturday night saturday night ! >> i think donald trump has
6:36 pm
challenges with women right now. it's no big secret. is this a good strategy store him? >> the hashtag deal me in has been trending on twitter with people making comments. barbara boxer for example tweeting that, as well. you know, it might be a good strategy or at least a not losing strategy in terms of his nomination. but when it comes to the general election, if this is going to be how he is going to continue to speak about women and try to appeal to women, um, that's going to be, um, a very interesting strategy. [ chuckling ] >> come november, probably won't hurt him between now and june but afterwards when he tries to pivot, clips like that are going to be interesting. >> still waiting for bernie sanders to announce a vp. we'll see. >> maybe you. [ laughter ] [ overlapping speakers ] >> wouldn't take the pay cut. thank you. leave your uber driving waiting and it could cost you. we asked to you weigh in on a possible move to charge riders a late fee. coming up. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

clouds are clearing. storms to the east because the low pressure system passed by to the north and east. that will rapidly move over nevada and by this time tomorrow be over salt lake city, utah. it's gone. what's next is a rather large ridge of high pressure. not as big and close as we were looking at 24 hours ago so temperatures not as high. we were talking about temperatures approaching 90 degrees likely staying in the low to mid-80s which is perhaps even more comfortable as we head toward the weekend. that would be away from the water. so we're partly cloudy tonight. there may be a sprinkle or two out there this evening but the majority of us are finished. more sun. we're warmer tomorrow but temperatures will hit their peak this weekend. 71 sunny in santa clara. fremont 70. pacifica 62. santa clara has the 49ers draft party tomorrow. look out for that. walnut creek sunshine 74. pittsburg 78.

warriors and rockets game five tonight at oracle arena. i'm dennis o'donnell. if if he win tonight the warriors go to the second round. franklin delano roosevelt, he is the man on the dime. of course, the former president and you remember that old expression, things can turn on a dime? >> the only thing we have to fear is fear itself! >> not if you're a basketball team. the biggest fear you have is injuries. and the western conference has been turned on a dime in just three days. when steph curry went down there was widespread panic in "dub nation" because the warriors would be under manned in their next series against the los angeles clippers. >> set to be out there with us.
6:53 pm
i think that we can adjust. we have been true it before. how we're going to play is already answered. >> reporter: then the dime turned again. clipper star point guard chris paul broke his hand. then star forward blake griffin had a quad injury and his season is over. it was enough to make roosevelt's head spin. >> it's the worst that i have seen. >> but every storm is -- it stops raining at some point. we have won games before. i think we can win games in the future without you guys. >> but if they don't this highly anticipated matchup might become this matchup against oakland native damian lillard and portland. a warriors season in doubt has turned on a dime.

♪[ music ] >> reporter: the giants dropped quite a few dimes on the new contract for brandon belt. how about 730 dimes for the giants first baseman. it appears to be paying off. it helps when the padres are in town. 3rd inning belt down the line. matt runs a mile to track it down. game tied on the double. samardzija gave up five runs. no problem when you get runs. giants take the lead five runs batted in for the shark in his last two starts. belt is red-hot. deja vu in the fourth another knock down the line. somebody should change the scouting report. two runs score on the triple. belt finished a home run shy of his cycle. he had five runs batted in. the bullpen holds on.
6:55 pm
norris down alley and it's caught. the giants held on after the catch by blanco. they sweep the padres after getting swept by arizona at home last week. the giants have not had a batter hit for the cycle since 2011. >> yeah. well, with him, you know, he kids all the time. every before the game, a good day for a cycle but we're still waiting it. he had a shot at it. but he did a nice job getting the runs in, using the whole field. he just missed one first time up. >> in my head i had already done it. the i thought the first one was a home run anyway so i'm counting in my head the home run so i hit for the cycle today. jim harbaugh coached first base in spring training for the a's and tigers. who does he root for tonight? sonny gray not really attacking his start with the most enthusiasm. tigers outfielder deep in the yard three-run shot to give the
6:56 pm
tigers a 4-0 lead. gray was removed after 2 innings and 65 pitchers. the tigers lead right now in the 7th inning. the sacramento kings unveiled their new logo yesterday. and today, paid for fans to have it tatooed on a body part. 5 area tattoo parlors have lines out the door to catch the new purple ink. those are definitely committed fans as they will be tonight at oracle arena and ken and veronica, it was 11 months ago today that the warriors beat the rockets in game 5 to advance to the nba finals for the first time in 40 years. tonight they win, they move on. >> not if, it's when. this is over tonight. thanks, dennis. captions by: caption colorado ♪ safe driver ♪ accident-free ♪ everybody put your flaps in the air for me ♪
