caused them to go to their knees, and handcuff them from there. >> reporter: it turns out dick's is eye frequent target of thieves in the bay area because of their so-called no-chase policy. this is video. crooks just strolling out of a dick's in fairfield, yelling at the security guard not to touch them. sources tell uhe women in this video from fairfield strongly resemble the ones who hit the pleasant hills store wednesday night. >> it wouldn't surprise me if these folks were connected to other similar thefts throughout the bay area. >> reporter: out of the five people that were arrested, one of them was an adult. she faces a charge of grand theft and conspiracy. an arrest in a gruesome homicide in san francisco of the 75-year-old victim was found dismembered in the outer mission on monday. police won't give any details on who they arrested or the suspect's relationship if

option 1 would modify existing gates. option 2 would use swing gates. option 3, sliding gates. and option 4, new york city subway style. >> my preference would be to go reporter: boardbe wasr. member in favor of option 4. most we iavor of option 1, modifying the existing gates. >> particularly interested in option 1? i think really does create a -- a fare gate that is difficult to evade. >> reporter: the board didn't vote on any options today. it was just an informational hearing. dublin city leaders have just turned down a proposal to fly the rainbow flag, signifying gay pride. dublin's first openly gay city cnc for a proclamation to make june lgbtq pride month. and the council
approved that idea unanimously. but they voted 3-2 against flying the rainbow flag. to go with the regular flags for the city, state, and nation. that's despite the fact that the request was amended to a single day. >> i didn't know in it would be controversial, per se. but i did know we needed to have the conversation. >> i think flying this flag is a symbol, and flying it would set a very dangerous precedent. >> a massive facebook account purge is underway. a new report says the social media giant removed more than three billion fake accounts since last year. the social media giant estimates that's 5% of their monthly users. nearly all of them were caught before becoming active. >> i can create thousands of fake accounts that like my page. then i could go to other people and say look how many people like me. so a lot of this is efforts to try and help influencers or help to cause influence.

pried open. >> i remember my husband closing my trunk. and i said did you lock the door? he says i locked it. i went back out and double-checked and it was locked. >> reporter: yet this morning when renee woke up, the car was unlocked, the jar was ajar, and someone rum badged through her glovebox. >> i looked to the right and there was a car with the doors open. looked to the history and i saw a few more cars with the doors open. >> reporter: renee's neighbor shared this video from his home security system. it shows a man with a flashlight disarming his car's alarm system and opening his door. >> security people have been raising the alarm. there is a way to, essentially, hack a key fob. the car companies are trying to come up with ways to comcombat them.

deal with rising sea levels. >> thousands of property owners may be forced to retreat to protect the beaches. by 2,100, thousands of homes along the california coast will be at risk of flooding. they want the homeowners to move away and let nature take its course. >> our neighborhood is right over here. >> reporter: though he lives on the coast, jeff has never worried about sea level rise. >> the water would never reach? >> oh, no. >> reporter: last fall, all that changed. the city of pacifica put out this draft of a local coastal plan. it includes something called managed retreat. homeowners and businesses could be moved away from the shore to give rising tides more room. pacifica plan reads "the city shall establish and pursue funding of a managed
retreat program for voluntary re at your own risk. >> we started researching it. and it started looking more and more scary. >> reporter: managed retreat could mean he would not be able to hold the city liable for any damage to his home in the event of a flood. and if he sells it, he would have to disclose that it's in a hazard zone. >> home values are gonna drop. >> reporter: some of jeff's neighbors have already given up. >> both houses on boat sides of me have moved. and partially because of this issue. >> reporter: the california coastal commission wants every single community along the coast to develop a managed retreat plan if you're in the coastal zone. and here in pacifica, the coastal zone means everything that's west of highway 1. all of these homes here out toward the ocean. the coastal it clear that the city
try to avoid that the strategid are basically seawalls and protection barriers like that. and beach replenishment. >> reporter: it may not be that simple though. the city's local coastal plan has to be approved by the coastal commission, including senior engineer, lesley ewing. >> we can either let external forces take control over what's going on in california or we can start taking control of it to an extent ourselves. >> reporter: she points out what happened in pacifica after several el niño winters just three years ago. 30 feet of slough, apartment buildings included, came tumbling down into the ocean. >> that type of unmanaged retreat is something that i don't think anybody wants to see. >> reporter: ewing says seawalls will no longer be allowed to be built under managed retreat
because they're only a temporary fix. they accelerate beach loss. many new developments and major remodels in the coastal zone are already having to waive the right to armor the shore. but they're not doing it without a fight. >> certainly if you're a landowner who has a home along the beautiful coastline here in california, i think you would think that is quite drastic. you might even think it's unconstitutional. >> reporter: the senior attorney with the pacific legal foundation, a group that helps defend property rights along the coast. >> one of rights that is fundamental is the right to use and to protect one's private property. >> reporter: his foundation is helping the city of solano beach and marin county sue the coastal commission. pacifica appears to be taking note. >> oftentimes things do get resolved in the courts. so that's one course of action. >> reporter: the city manager acknowledges there may be some
new zoning regulations. possibly along the city's already-defined hazard zone along the bluff. jeff is not reassured by that. it still has the same effect as managed retreat. they're just not calling it that. it is our home. and it's just not fair that they should impose any sort of restrictions on us. >> reporter: the commission responded with changes and just recently the city of pacific batted back with what it calls a compromise. now the next move is up to the coastal commission. >> we'll keep following this issue. marine experts say young males shedding their winter coats, the elephant seals moving into this part of drake's beach.
they've taken over a popular stretch for families. don't mistake their size for being slow. a part of the beach is now closed after the herd moved in. >> they'll rear up, they might even growl at you. but they're fast. they are much faster than you would expect them to be. speaking of the sea, the waves are calming down. the live surf line camera at pacifica. the swells are not intig tonight as they have been in the past couple of days. but it's just strange weather we're dealing with. i don't know what to expect from day to day. >> and rain is on the way? >> we're not done yet. typically by june the first, there's basically an off switch. june, july, august, september, almost zero chances of rain. i don't know here. i can't guarantee that. as long as this pattern sticks around, there will be rain somewhere close to the bay
