thieves were, police say they were in the lower level thieves, the ones out in the neighborhoods cutting the catalytic converters out from underneath the cars. when those to arrested, the ring leaders would actually go in, post bail for those lower level thieves and police say as soon as they got out of jail, the lower level thieves were back to work stealing the catalytic converters once again. what an operation. the fox theater canceled a show after a woman was shot on the street outside. chopper 5 was over the scene just after 230 this afternoon. the victim is expected to recover. no word on what sparked the shooting. authorities are going to evidence after serving a search warrant at the home of his former northbay mayor. he stepped down in may after multiple woman accused him of sexual assault, abuse, or
