6:00 pm
there has been a spike in home burglaries around the bay area and police are noticing most of them have one thing in common. it has to do with what has become a very expensive little pill. and it is a story you'll see only on 5. >> reporter: peaceful suburb. but just a few months ago out of nowhere a rash of burglaries. >> the lock was broken. >> reporter: she came home and found her home in shambles. >> a jewelry box was gone. >> i saw nine in probably a three-week period. >> reporter: sonoma county detective mike roesh began to notice similarities. >> how they were getting in the house and what was getting stolen. >> reporter: working with santa rosa police mike connected the dots arresting 14 people including the ringleader. >> we covered a lot of valuable items.
6:01 pm
probably $100,000 plus range. >> reporter: mostly jewelry but other evidence revealed the burglar's motive. >> we found drugs, syringes. most all of them were addicted to oxyxcotin. >> reporter: the addiction to oxy isn't new. six months ago one pill went for $40. today the same pill goes for over $100. why? because the manufacturer of oxycotin is trying to stop people from abusing it. people wanting an oxy high crush up the tablets and snort it. like we saw a few months ago when we went undercover on a drug infested san francisco street. >> he is snorting it. he just snorted it. >> reporter: the tablets can be liquified and injected. >> they will put it on a spoon, put a little water on it, heat the bottom of the spoon. >> reporter: so the manufacturer switched to a new version of the tablet called o.p. >> you try to crush it it just
6:02 pm
stays together. >> you can't inject it. >> reporter: but the old o.c.s are on the street costing ever more and cops say causing a spike in property crimes, burglaries in santa rosa up 17% from 2009. assistant public defender kathleen pose said it is not the usual suspects. >> good families, good decent kids that i'm hearing were college bound, had everything going on in their lives. >> reporter: when they start using o.c.s -- >> the addiction level is immediate. they will do anything to get this drug. >> reporter: like alex jackson. >> we would crack each other up. >> reporter: his sister said oxyx took over his life. >> and i wouldn't hear from him for weeks. he was ashamed. i know he was ashamed of himself. >> reporter: johnson was
6:03 pm
arrested on a misdemeanor in the jason kasel investigation, two hours after getting out of jail found dead in the bathroom of a gas station just down the street. >> he had overdosed. it is just like horrifying. >> reporter: pose say's johnson's death is just a precursor. >> i fear they will end up dying. they are certainly going to start using again or they will commit more crimes. >> and just yesterday police in morgan hill told us that they think oxycotin addiction is behind the new rash of robberies there. oakland's police chief and mayor will be sticking together but their relationship is strained and it appears awkward at times. chief anthony bast says he is staying in oakland after trying unsuccessfully to get another job. linda yee on what looks different now between the city's leader and the chief of police. linda? >> reporter: well you're right, dana. relationship looking uneasy and
6:04 pm
reluctant. they did stand side by side today right before the cameras to explain what made chief anthony batts decide he will stay in oakland. >> reporter: it was supposed to be just a meet and greet with the people of this west oakland neighborhood. the police chief was not entirely happy with the photo op it came but his boss insisted. >> the chief sent out his release this morning saying that he is staying in oakland and so i'm very pleased to hear that and we have had some interesting discussions about what we need to do. >> reporter: since batts found out he did not get the job in san jose he is not sure whether he will stay in oakland. the raid and equipment failures haven't helped persuade him but now he says he will stay overall. >> the thing that touched me the most is the outpouring from this community. i can't tell you how many e- mails, letters, phone calls. cutest little things.
6:05 pm
preschoolers sent this thing with a big note that said chief, please don't leave which touched my heart. >> reporter: mary myles daycare teacher believing batts is good for oakland even if he was ready to abandon the city. >> i think second thoughts are something we all have in our professions. >> so you can forgive him? >> i already have. we all have. >> reporter: mayor jean quan has been at odds with the police force. she implies all is forgiven. >> we did some clarifications on sending him a really nice valentine. but mostly we have had a lot of discussions about what we can expect and resources and the kinds of changes we have to make and where i will be there to support him. >> reporter: the mayor already promised to rehire ten of the officers cut last summer. unreliable radios have forced the chief to staff two officers per patrol car.
6:06 pm
>> we have taken precautions. i would do that at any police agency if any system is not working properly i want to make sure officers can back each other up. >> reporter: by doubling up it will mean fewer patrol cars on the streets. the mayor and chief say they will be phasing in a new communication system with a $20 million federal grant. but that new communication system won't be going in right away. they have to wait for a license to be cleared. so in the meantime they will be doubling up and that means fewer patrol cars on the street. >> but still getting down to business and all this business behind them so they can do their police work. linda yee, thank you. protection from unwanted advances from panhandlers. people in san francisco lied a no sit/lie ordinance taking effect february 1st. simon perez looking to see if there is a change on the streets of san francisco. what did you find out? >> reporter: allen, we are hear
6:07 pm
in the heart of it all. this neighborhood is changing for better apparently. the police department hasn't begun enforcing the sit/lie law yet. >> we hope to be up and running with that soon but there is no rush for us to do that. >> reporter: no rush for san francisco police officers to enforce the sit/lie ordinance that voters approved last november. one reason is the police department wants to make sure it figures out the best way to train officers to apply the law. >> we are just trying to get all the steps in place so that we don't have to start and then go, oh, we are not doing this correctly. we need to stop. >> reporter: supervising officers were explained first and then explained it to the rank and file that came up with good questions. >> how many warnings do we have to give? if the person moves and they move down the block do we have to warn them again? those type of questions had to be figured out. >> reporter: the answer, one warning per person and then the
6:08 pm
citation starts no matter where the sitting or lying takes place. >> i'm very satisfied. the police have to deal with this in in an intelligent, practical way. >> reporter: backing the police strategy of going slow and get it right. >> the idea is not to criminalize people, the idea is to keep the sidewalks free of clutter and the police need to be trained how to do that. so i'm a big believer in professional policing and training. >> reporter: even though the laze went into effect on december 17th but hasn't been enforced yet, there is still change on the streets. >> the mere discussion of the issue has helped to improve the situation on the street because the people are getting the message. >> reporter: john crawford would agree. he is visiting from san diego and has noticed a difference from the last time he was here several months ago. >> sidewalks are a lot more open and easier to move around and maneuver. >> i like it. >> thanks. >> the change really is
6:09 pm
noticeable in the neighborhood. we have done this story several times and far fewer people here today. but evans says the real challenge is going to be this summer when hundreds of thousands of people come here to try to relive the 1960s. allen dangerfield says the police department will begin enforcing sit/lie law in a couple of weeks, not months. >> simon, thanks. you might be paying more for public transit but i will tell you about one group that pays nothing at all. that story just ahead. >> bottles flying, glasses flying and people holding broom handles. sound like a good time? the bay area bar water hole that had a brawl straight out of the wild west. remember the bell salary scandal. why the city's next round of leaders just won't show up to work. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

6:12 pm
fare hikes and service cuts. but while commuters are riding the wave of tran no doubt times are tougher for bay area transit riders, but while commuters are riding the wave of transportation troubles one group is riding for free. mark sayer explains why some can hop on board without paying. mark? >> reporter: dana, the goal of this program is to remove yet one more obstacle to those who are homeless. that barrier being transportation. >> i have to ride the train and a lot of days i don't have $2 but i still have to get where i'm going. >> reporter: reginald taylor rides the system several times a week. he was homeless for two years and says transportation was always one of his biggest challenges. >> by being able to go and come and stuff like that, it is also good for your mental and your self-esteem. >> reporter: so taylor says it is good news that the v.t.a. along with the city of san jose
6:13 pm
and santa clara county are teaming up to continue a little known program that offers the homeless free rides on the v.t.a. bus and light rail network. >> seems so simple but it is a big, huge issue. >> reporter: lynn with santa clara county's housing and home support program helps the homeless get back on their feet. >> how do you apply for benefits or services? how do you get to your doctor? how do you get food at the food bank? you have to find a way to get there. >> reporter: the county gets 1800 transit stickers each quarter from the v.t.a. permanently affixed to photo i. d..'s like this one. the travel is monitored to prevent abuse. >> there is no way to just get one. >> reporter: riders say they are all for helping those who are already struggling. >> it helps them get where they need to go. they don't have to worry about having bus money. i think it is a good idea.
6:14 pm
>> we really need to be loving to the homeless right now because what they need is somebody to love them and encourage them and uplift them and help them. >> reporter: as for the cost of this program it is $111,000 each year for the three years of the program effective april 1st. that money is being split between the county of santa clara and the city of san jose. dana, back to you,. >> a very compassionate response. we don't think necessarily that $2 is a lot of money but when you don't have anything it is everything. >> reporter: indeed. that person we interviewed at the beginning of the story there he didn't have the money for his inbound ride to san jose today so he told me he walked about three miles. he did have the $2 for the ride home. >> mark sayer in san jose, thank you. after four suspicious hours in 24 hours tonight police urging people in san francisco, especially in the castro district, be on alert for arsonists. the latest fire early this morning outside a home on 18th
6:15 pm
near noee street. arson investigators found a piece of plastic that was burning in front of a doorway. a neighbor put out the flames before firefighters got there about 4:15 a.m. >> the only thing i could grab was a teapot and i filled it up with water and it was just -- they had a screen on the front of their door to keep the bugs out and that's i guess what was burning. >> three other fires broke out in that same area yesterday. investigators also consider those to be suspicious. they are working to confirm if they are all related. another fire forced more than 200 people to evacuate from one of silicon valley's biggest homeless shelters today. fire broke out about 2:00 a.m. this morning at santa jose's emergency housing consortium. thick smoke woke the homeless up. they got out safely. firefighters say the fire started somewhere in the laundry room although the exact cause is still being investigated and the shelter is back open tonight. nearly 200 people throwing
6:16 pm
bottles and punches. that's what emeryville police faced when answering a call of a bar fight early this morning. >> there were bottles flying, glasses flying and people holding broom handles. >> there was still blood on the sidewalk. it started just before 1:30 a.m. at kitty's bar. about 180 people were involved police say. officers eventually moved everyone outside but the fighting flared up again and the crowds started attacking police. >> bottles were being thrown at them. one officer was punched in the face. >> that's when the police called for back-up. about 30 officers from the c.h.p., oakland and berkeley p. d . responded but by the time they arrived several people were already injured and bleeding. they had the situation under control by 1:45 a.m. only two people were arrested.
6:17 pm
one officer suffered minor injuries. roberta, what do we have in store this weekend? >> today we cracked that 70- degree mark. it was 70 in livermore topped off by santa rosa at 71 degrees. the cold spot was 58 in half moon bay. this is our live cbs5 weather camera. clear skies, current air temperatures are in the 50s into the low 60s. we do currentsly however have 66 degrees in redwood city. temperatures falling off very quickly this evening. overnight tonight. 43 in santa rosa. 43 in san jose. mid-40s common across the central bay. we have a ridge of high pressure. when you see clouds drifting in today, high thin, wispy clouds. they undercut the ridge of high pressure so we call if a dirty ridge but it is still strong and will stay in place and will contribute to record warmth right here in throughout the
6:18 pm
area. record at 71. oakland shattered their mark and san jose should get very close to that record temp established way back in 1912. a little bit of change in the atmosphere in the santa clara valley tomorrow. otherwise, sierra forecast will be cloud free until about monday. no snow. temperatures tomorrow panning out like this. 60s to 70s. extended forecast does call for each and every day a dry weather pattern. and dana and allen, next time around i'll tell you just when we should experience rain back in the bay area. >> not for a while though. >> not for a while. thank you, roberta. a reminder. read the fine print. speaking of credit problems, why does our hair go grey. it is all in 2 minutes. ,,,,,,,,,,

and video rental fees causing a confusing cancellation policy. a double charge for gas. and video rental fees causing big hits to consumer credit. those are the stories that julie watts is covering tonight on the consumer watch. >> we begin tonight with a common consumer confusion and a reminder to read the fine print. when ronald booked a five-day trip to australia told him there were no cancellation fees but when he had to cancel a few days later he was charged the entire balance. $931. what he missed was the fine print explaining the website may not charge but some hotels do. and ronald says that was confusing.
6:22 pm
>> they need full disclosure of their policy. they blame a lot on the hotel itself saying it is not us, it is the hotel. but they are the agent. >> in a statement to cbs5 they said they do not charge cancellation fees but they say certain hotels do and they have to pass that onto the consumer. since contacted ronald's australian hotel and has now refunded his money. also getting money back this week, more than 400,000 shell customers. that's because a phone line outage resulted in duplicate charges for those buying gas last saturday. shell reversed most of them but many debit card customers now face overdraft and other related fees. shell says it will also cover those charges. critics are now calling for better industry standards following previous similar incidents at starbucks, macy's and best buy. and hundreds of thousands of former hollywood video customers may have taken a hit to their credit. the bankrupt company turned over outstanding late fees to
6:23 pm
an oklahoma debt collector which then dropped collection notices into customer files. several states attorneys general are now suing national credit solutions alleging it never notified customers of the debt and some say they don't owe the debt. the company says they will remove negative credit reports but continues to send out collection notices. now, if you receive one of those notices, ignoring it could impact your credit. you should ask for written proof of the debt, dispute it in writing and then contact the attorney general's office. on the consumer watch, julie watts, cbs5. well, for some of us it comes sooner rather than later. are you as familiar with the word "distinguished" as i am. what makes our hair turn grey as we age? ken bastida with tonight's good question. >> when i was a kid my hair was dark. even up through my 20s and 30s i had a lot of hair and it was dark. look here is a picture of me and carlos santana 1978.
6:24 pm
see, we both had dark hair then. and then when i hit 40, things started to change. >> what happened to my hair? why did it turn grey? >> well, the answer you may not want to hear. the reason it turned grey is purely based on mom and dad. >> mom and dad. like every kid i inherited my parents' genetic traits and for me that means grey hair. but the chief dermatologist at california's medical center admits scientists don't know why we start producing melanin. >> what is that trigger factor that tells a follicle to stop producing melanin. we are certainly working on certain genes that may explain why in certain people the follicle produces melanin and in others it does not. >> there are some medical
6:25 pm
conditions such as thyroid and other things. smoking. but that's about it. >> can stress turn your hair grey? >> no. >> how about having kids? can that turn your hair grey? >> see, these are all the myths. >> send me your good questions. >> i'm len ramirez in san jose. this is the fueling station of the future. the rubber is starting to hit the road for new cars. how much demand there will be for a place to plug? an update on this massive deconstruction job which in turn is bringing jobs to the bay area. and on the heels of that jaw dropping pay scandal we are going back to bell. and guess what? the city has a whole new mess on its hands. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

6:30 pm
be a very quaint memory. >> reverse. >> reporter: electric cars for everyday driving are not just around the corner. they are here and now. >> it is the latest status symbol. so i get a lot of looks. >> reporter: he is one of the first people in the country to get behind the wheel of a chevy volt which he has been driving to work this campbell since he got it three weeks ago today. >> this actually is my primary car. >> reporter: the five-door, four passenger hatchback runs 40 miles on rechargeable batteries but also has a gas engine to extend its range if needed. >> once i run out of electric charge the gas kicks in. so i have no issues of anxiety because of range. i don't want to go to the gas station any more. >> reporter: but there is still one problem. charging stations to reenergize the cars are still few and far between. >> i went to palo alto. i couldn't make it all the way back here without the gas system kicking in. >> reporter: but he can change
6:31 pm
that. his company column technologies builds charging stations for electric cars. the u.s. government has just given them a $17 million grant to build over 4000 charging stations in parking lots and street spaces free of charge to cities, corporations and drivers. >> in addition to those workplace chargers similar to the one i'm standing to right next to me, we have ct 500 which is a home charging station that you would put in your garage or wall mount at your residence while you're sleeping. >> reporter: the two electric car models available from companies have sold fewer than 800 units as of january 31st due mostly to production delays. but the demand for the cars and charging stations is starting to spike. >> the rubber is starting to hit the road literally with these plug-in vehicles and we are seeing in just the last two
6:32 pm
months an exponential jump in demand for charging now that the bolts have starting being delivered. >> reporter: 2011 is expected to be a very big year for electric cars. besides the nissan lease and chevy volt, there will be ford vehicles and a hyundai model. remember president obama has set a goal of having 1 million electric cars on the road by 2015. believe me, this is going to be a quaint scene, nobody using an electric car charging point. >> so let me ask you in the meantime though, len, this charging station, is it free to the car owner? >> reporter: no, you have to pay for the electricity but what they are doing -- what this grant enabled them is to set these up for free. >> got it. >> reporter: basically cities won't have to pay for this pole and light standard and things like that, but the electricity will have to be charged for
