A measure on the California November ballot would reduce some drug possession and theft-related felony crimes to misdemeanors. Proponents say it would reduce prison overcrowding and prison costs. Opponents say it would put dangerous criminals back on the streets and overcrowd local jails.
Stockton Police are looking to question a man who might have dropped off the gunmen in the Bank of the West robbery and shootout in July.
After a dramatic drop in Stockton's homicide rate over the last couple of years, the violent death numbers are going back up again.
