6:05 pm
fighting for this for many years before i or other people were even around. so it's a shame that all of this great work is now needing to be potentially redone and actually revisited in such a short time frame. >> reporter: the oceanic society depends on the sanctuary for tours that support its research and programs. the sanctuary is home to the great california current that supports forests a newly discovered form of corral and endangered species. the western states petroleum association says they have no interest in the area saying instead, quote, our member companies proudly operate in some of the toughest regulatory environments in the country where we power economies and lead environmental protection and our focus is on how best to produce and refine petroleum products in the west. >> we need to think long-term

6:15 pm
would be no investigation because there was no crime. that was yesterday. today kpix 5's len ramirez says they have changed their tune. >> reporter: a video showing the thieves caught in the act. a license plate even a still shot of the driver getting away. heidi thought her recording of the brazen package theft and her daring confrontation of the thieves would be enough to solve the case right away but two days later all she has is a case number. she's thankful for that. >> it's frustrating because basically i feel like i put the puzzle together and all they have to do is just, you know, go over there and write them a citation. >> reporter: after calling 911 immediately after the confrontation in which the thieves threw back her package, she says an officer first told her there would be no investigation because she got her package back. but after kpix 5 broke the story showing her home surveillance video and still photos of the cup alls car and license plate, she says she got a housecall from a police officer. >> he basically very bluntly
6:16 pm
put it that they decided to open a case and make it official. and because he didn't realize there was so much information available. so they kind of blamed it on miscommunication at the department. people didn't realize i had photos and videos. >> reporter: even though the package was thrown back, it's still a crime. the post office which delivered the package filled with ebay tape and tissue paper says it's a felony and federal offense. >> it just takes time and we just ask people be patient. >> reporter: san jose police say they will try and track down the couple and investigate the potential tie-ins. >> any information that we get could tie these two people into additional cases that are outstanding where maybe we had a vehicle description but we didn't have a license plate. >> reporter: police say so far this year in san jose, they have 10800 reports of property crimes many of them also with some form of surveillance video. but this case with its combination of video, still photos of the suspects and a license plate probably makes it one of the most solvable.
6:17 pm
