silva lives last august he recorded a strip poker game that included underage teens in his bedroom at the camp on his cell phone. a transcript from the affidavit of that incident on august 7th, 2015, indicates those playing strip poker did not want to be recorded. did you take a picture? oh, you're trying to record. i didn't sign nothing to be recorded. the investigation into silva has been ongoing for a while. in september the stockton mayor was stopped at customs at sfo following a trip to china and his laptop was confiscated. kpix5 security analyst and former special agent in charge of the san francisco feel house, jeff harp, says it wasn't an accident. >> it didn't just happen, you know, to get lucky at customs. they didn't just happen to stop him and say we'd like to look at your computer. he was already on the radar. >> reporter: the laptop was eventually returned to silva, but harp says agents with the fbi and i.c.e. likely made a copy of i had hard drive for the
investigation. >> mirroring the hard drive can take an hour. it can take longer than that, kind of depends on the complexity of the piece of equipment, but once it's mirrored then they have all the information necessary to do their forensic analysis. >> in total according to the affidavit 23 photos and four videos from the camp were found on silva's cell phone. harp says cases like this one involving minors are slowly and meticulously investigated, but because of silva's office things may have been sped up. >> this is a person of trust and confidence in a public official. so the bar is probably set a little lower. nor contribu >> now here is a breakdown of the charges. felony eavesdropping, misdemeanor contributing to the delinquency of a minor, furnishing alcohol to a minor and cruelty to a child. in the newsroom andria borba, kpix5. >> this gun that the mayor owns raising more questions about him tonight.
less than a week ago investigators revealed the weapon was used to kill 13-year- old ra'shon harris last year. silva says the gun was stolen but didn't report it until a month after harris' death. tonight we're hearing from the boy's father. >> it's hurting me. i'm crying. i'm steady crying. i really thought he was on my side, but now with all this coming out what's really going on? >> now the stockton d.a.'s office says silva refused to talk to investigators about the missing gun for weeks. silva's political consultant denies that claim. to first time a baby with zika related birth defects has been born here in the bay area. kpix5's betty yu is in berkeley with those details. betty? >> reporter: a kcbs radio source says the baby was born here in berkeley with zika related birth defects, most notely a smaller than normal head which generally means that
the brain didn't develop properly. a source tells kcbs radio one of the two babies born with zika related birth defects in california was born al alta bates medical center in berkeley in the last six months. the mother had traveled from guatemala. >> it's a good reminder essentially that the zika virus infection during pregnancy can cause bad pregnancy outcomes like microcephaly which means a small skull and the most important prevention is for pregnant women to really be aware of, you know, right now our guidance is to not travel to areas impacted by zika. >> reporter: hotspots include parts of latin america and the caribbean even though the types of mosquitoes that can carry the virus have been found in 12 california counties. health officials stress there is no evidence of mosquitoes transmitting zika in the state at this time. still uc berkeley clinical professor john schwarzeberg says pregnant women or women
trying to get pregnant should use repellant. >> you don't want to be the first case. so therefore the only way we'll know if they're mosquitoes that are carrying zika is when there are cases here in california. then we start looking and seeing how many infected mosquitoes there are. >> reporter: health officials warn that the virus can also be passed through sex and men who travel in active zika areas should use condoms. >> currently we're saying men should avoid sexual transmission if they've had symptoms using barrier methods for six months and if their partner is pregnant, actually they should use barrier methods throughout the pregnancy. >> reporter: as of last friday, state health officials confirmed 114 cases of travel- related zika viruses. 21 of them were in women who are pregnant. they add the disease is considered mild in people who are not pregnant. live in berkeley, betty yu, kpix5. tonight the president is
pressuring congress to approve $1.9 billion in emergency funding to fight zika. on the fight against isis. >> in addition, congress needs to do its job. fighting zika costs money. helping puerto rico deal with its zika crisis costs money. research into new vaccines and by the way, nih just announced the first clinical trials in humans. that costs money. >> the president updated us on the fight against isis. he says advances by coalition and local forces are working. isis is declining in syria and iraq, but the u.s. still has to do a better job disrupting the terror networks. tonight we know one of the people hurt in a knife rampage in london is from the bay area. marty honish is a retired san jose firefighter. another american, a woman in her 60s, darlene horton of florida, was killed last night. according to the guardian, she tried to warn others about the attacker as she laid dying in
the street. a 19-year-old man is under arrest. investigators say they're ruling out terror as a motive because there is no sign he was radicalized and the suspect who has mental health issues chose his victims at random. tonight we learned the tour bus driver who crashed in the central valley killing four passengers never should have been behind the wheel. reporter kurtis ming explains how he slipped through the cracks. >> reporter: we've learned mario vasquez was caught driving the same bus involved in tuesday's crash during the two months in 2015 when he was not allowed to commercially drive. california dmv records show vasquez was disqualified from driving a commercial vehicle from january to march of 2015 based on a serious traffic violation. federal records show the same bus involved in tuesday's crash was inspected during that window. on february 5th of 2015 in oregon, that's the same day vasquez was cited for being an unlicensed driver. license expired, not in possession, driving out of
class or failure to display on lawful demand. we've learned vasquez pled no contest and paid a $260 fine. however, the california dmv never took any more acquisition against his license. why? the dmv -- more action against his license. why? the dmv said the information provided to california does not indicate the offense involved a commercial vehicle and was assessed a zero point count value. therefore, the citation did not trigger any further action against driving privileges. the oregon dmv admit there was a clerical error. either the officer or court did not put down vasquez was driving a bus that day. the california dmv said had they known that, he would have been barred from driving a bus another four months. if you were driving through downtown san francisco tonight, you know traffic was absolute gridlock. there was a widespread power
