young person who did this. it's impossible to say though. it was writing on a door that said a bomb would go off today, so we're going to take steps to make sure it's safe. >> reporter: tell me what parents will see as they come here throughout the day. >> there will be a uniform presence throughout the day today. i'm not going to get in too much specifics, but they will see uniformed officer and increased security. >> reporter: okay. thank you for joining us with the update. we've seen a couple kids going into the children's center within the last couple minutes. when we got here earlier, we did see that dog going through the campus and searching to make sure everything was secure. we should mention the district did sent a letter to the parents alerting them about what happened and telling them if their kids decide not to come to school, it will be an excused absence. certainly, they are hoping th come to school.

parents to say, you know what? we don't want to go there. we'll keep them home? >> absolutely. that's a family's decision. it's whatever the family feels comfortable with, whether it be the child himself or herself who feels uncomfortable. >> reporter: this has been a lot of buildup. this was found august 4th. we've had a chance to think about it, settle in. some of the teachers we've talked to have noticed all of the -- all of this all week. you want people to see this when they come in, maybe make them feel better when there's extra security. >> well, the police are running this operation here and i'm shufer -- i'm sure it makes people feel comfortable that the dog has been through. >> reporter: so parents still on the fence at home, obviously you want them to come here and you want the kids to learn.
>> it's always better for a student to follow their regular schedule. but it is the family's decision. we support either decision. if the kids want to come, we would love to have them. >> reporter: thanks for joining us. you are taking a live look at the front of the school right now where you have a couple of more officers from the santa clara police department. we counted about seven officers out here this morning. again, you will see this if you are dropping your kids off at school here this morning. they won't give us details about what exactly they have planned in terms of security. but you will see a presence. we should mention, the bomb- sniffing dog did go through the campus. that dog checked out flower beds, doors. the dog came up with nothing. the lieutenant says that makes him very confident that this will be a safe place for the students today. claudine wong, ktvu channel 2 news. >> school begins at 8:40?
>> reporter: 8:40. so we'll be talking to parents as they drop off their kids and have an update on that. >> thank you. three minutes after 8:00. gilroy police are wrapping up a major drug bust that they say have taken millions of dollars off the street. this is east of highway 10 1. drug agents seized about 500- pounds of methamphetamine and more than 80-pounds of marijuana with an estimated street value of up to 1 100 million. >> within with the sheriff's department for 31 years. i've been in the narcotics field in one form or another for 18 of those years. i've never seen anything like this. >> reporter: the investigation started about a year ago in sacramento. the case eventually led to the gilroy location which police say is linked to a lucrative mexican drug cartel. three people were taken into custody and are now facing a number of drug charges. raids were also carried out in
sacramento and modesto. 8:04. santa clara county authorities are investigating something horrible that happened last night at a concert in saratoga. take a look at this photo. it's from the mountain winery last night. witnesses say a man jumped from the top of that building and in the background you see there and landed on the stage. the man was given cpr right away. you about he did not survive. we talked to authorities this morning. they told us they are investigating this case as an apparent suicide. but they are still trying to figure out exactly what happened. they are asking any witnesses to come forward. it is 8:05. one man was injured after crashing into a millbrae home overnight. kraig debro joins us now with reaction from neighbors, specifically about what happened to the suspect. good morning, kraig. >> reporter: good morning, tori. i was just speaking with a millbrae auf. we have a little bit of an explanation about what happened to the neighbors. a lot of people are starting to
wonder why was the suspect just given a citation, especially given all of the damage he caused. this is a house on sequoia at south ashton. they actually have a maintenance out here starting to repair some of the damage right here. let's take a look at some of the video. police say the driver of a blue truck was under the influence when he drove up sequoia shortly before midnight. at the time, the man was finished, the minivan totaled a honda and had significant damage. when police arrived on the scene, they evaluated the driver and decided he should not be driving but they did not book him into the county jail. >> wow. that's surprising. >> what's surprising? >> that they didn't arrest him. and i wonder why that is because with a dui, you would think he would get arrested. >> after seeing the damage, that's surprising. >> reporter: did they take him to jail?
>> i'm not aware of the laws but it seems to me he went up on really -- we'll see, i guess. >> reporter: instead, police took the man to the hospital where he was treated for a minor injury or minor injuries and issued a cites station for a dui. police say he could be responsible for all. damage. i just spoke with the millbrae police officer a couple of minutes ago. he told me the suspect was arrested. all of the arrest procedures were followed. the suspect was not handcuffed because he was injured but his rights were read to him. however, this is considered a misdemeanor because the suspect was the only person injured in this crash. had somebody else been injured, it would have been considered a felony and the suspect would have been booked into the county jail. reporting live in millbrae, ktvu channel 2 news. >> thank you, kraig. seven minutes after 8:00. petaluma police arrested a man described as a habitual dui
driver after a check showed he had more arrests and convictions than first thought. police say a recent check shows 52-year-old james timothy mccrowen had eight arrests and convictions between 1996 and 2002. he was arrested last month and was also picked up this week for two dui crashes in marin county. he's off the streets and sitting in a marin county jail. bail is set at $250,000. let's go to sal see what's happening on the roads as we speak. >> all right. it's been pretty quiet out here. let's take a look at the commutes that are normally very crowded. when you see 237 at 880, not showing slow traffic. that means we have a relatively light commute today. i'm sure there will be people out there that will see something different. we have a relatively light commute here.
southbound 101 on the other side of marsh road, there is an injury accident that came in a few minutes ago. southbound 101 just before marsh road, looks like a pickup truck versus a small sedan. that one just came in. let's take a look at -- this is 880. after 880 we'll see the toll plaza, westbound traffic is moving well. once again, just getting word of a new crash, southbound 101 before marsh road. let's go to steve. all right, thank you. lee clouds, fog. today, most locations will cool down. i just received an e-mail. i guess some girls are going wine tasting out in el dorado county. it will still be hot out there, okay? it won't cool down. but for most of the bay area, it will cool down. if you are heading out to the valley, yes, it will be hot. but probably not this hot which is what the lies were yesterday. ukiah is 97.
vacaville, 95. livermore, 93. fairfield, 92. concord at 90 degrees and in san jose and santa rosa. that's nice. high pressure was here for a day. it said, you know what? california you look good. i'm on my way, i'm leaving. why? because it's getting bumped out by two systems, one here and one biggin right here. it starts today and carries through the weekend. if you are far enough away from the coast. tomorrow everyone cools off. if you are heading to infineon, saturday will be cool and breezy. sunday should be warmer but on the windy side. cooler, 60s and 70s. windy at times. the gusts of 40 will be out towards the delta. low clouds, cooler, breezy at times. 62 san francisco. that's bele average. 67 -- that's below average. 67. that's average. same for measmd. everybody was 73 -- for alameda.

that's more of a sea breeze which is picking up already. areas in the 90s, even though we had the sun yesterday, we had mid- to upper 60s. 70s on the coast, back in the 60s for all. cooler across the board on saturday. windy on sunday. there's actually an upside to the unseasonably cool weather we've had the air quality is better. in fact, as we look live outside our window. if you know -- do you know there's not been one spare the air alert the whole summer? that's because the low pressure front along the coast has caused cool conditions. that's helping to keep our air cleaner. the air quality officials say by this time of the year, we usually have at least a couple of spare the -- spare the air alerts. >> it seems like it's been in the 90s in the east bay. >> yeah. 8:12. that anonymous hero of the recent killing of a german

the city. according to "the examiner" officers will be arresting people who came to a nearby band, the venue of the shooting. there is now a $50,000 reward for any information that leads to the death of david lewis. in the weeks after his death, investigators followed up on the information he gave them after he was shot at hillsdale mall in san mateo. at a community meeting last night, the police explain why some might think the investigation is proceeding slowly. >> i have ten detectives working this -- this case. they all have their own kers series. unfortunately in a traumatic event, not everyone sees things the same way. >> there are rumors that lewis told police who shot him before he died. police confirm he was talking before he shot but thi thought i would survive and decided to
question him once he recovered. we should learn today whether charges will be dropped against debra madden. gorge gascon will make an announcement in the afternoon regarding the investigation. ktvu has learned that the state attorney general is unlikely to invest the time and money to prosecute madden for stealing cocaine from the lab. we've also learned that the police investigation centered around a paper used in the lab to wrap narcotics. madden's attorney said it would be difficult to prove the paper came from that lab. well, the fbi is determined the phone call that trigger inned the grounding of an american airlines jet yesterday was not credible. we found out the call came into the hampton inn and suites. the front desk clerk said he got the threat about 30 minutes before the plane's newly-

hit with a record fine from the government. "the wall street journal" reports the faa will order american to pay a $25 million fine for short comings with the maintenance procedures. they say this led to cancelled the flights being cancelled in 2008. the airline says there's been no notice from the faa and there's no region for this type of action. starbucks cames via coffee is being questioned. employees say they are being pressured to push sales of the instant coffee and there are workers -- reports that workers ring up these drinks as via. starbucks says they are aware of the reports but believe they are isolated incidents. company executives say via is on the way to becoming a big business. we've got some new information. it's about a deadly shooting in
