SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Two Northern California men in federal court were charged with conspiring to attack the Democratic headquarters in Sacramento, the U.S. Department of Justice Northern District of California said on Thursday. Ian Benjamin Rogers, 45, of Napa, and Jarrod Copeland, 37, of Vallejo, began plotting an attack on targets they associated with Democrats after the 2020 Presidential election and attempted to gain support from an anti-government militia group, the DOJ said. Both men allegedly planned to use explosive devices in their attacks and hoped their actions would spark a movement to overthrow the government. Rogers has been in custody since his arrest on January 15. On that day, law enforcement officials searched his home and business and found a cache of weapons including 45 to 50 firearms, thousands of rounds of ammunition, and five pipe bombs, officials said. Video from earlier this year shows the Bay Area business where police say Rogers was stashing guns and explosives. Copeland was taken into custody on Wednesday. They were both charged with conspiracy to destroy by fire or explosive a building used or in affecting interstate…
SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Since the pandemic began, road rage incidents have been spiking nationwide. Just in the last month, CBS13 has covered crashes, shootings, and arrests all resulting from road rage. An ax, sling-shot, and a firearm have been the weapons of choice for angry drivers behind the wheel. “I heard like a window shatter,” said Abdullah Alfatly Alfatly said he fell victim to a road rage incident carried out by a man the California Highway Patrol has identified as Jose Bonilla. A video you first watched on CBS13 shows Bonilla firing a homemade sling-shot at drivers. “When I saw the video, I was like ‘Yes, this is the same car,” Alfatly said.

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — A battle over bunny safety is boiling over at a Sacramento County park. Rescuers are swooping in to save a colony of feral domestic rabbits that have roamed free at Crosswoods Community Park in Citrus Heights for decades, but the neighbors who feed them say the bunnies don’t need saving. “We name them. We take care of them. People take them to the vet when they’re actually injured or sick,” said Claire Manzer-Lovesee, a feeder. A local rabbit rescue group sees the situation differently. “It’s really nice that they care about them, but they’re really not understanding that they’re domestic,” said Caty, a volunteer with Friends of Unwanted Rabbits. Caty said the organization recently captured and rehabbed roughly twenty of the rabbits with plans to adopt them out. “When we come, we get verbally and physically harassed because people are very upset that we are ‘stealing the rabbits,’ ” she said. The back and forth battle now involves park district leaders who find themselves trying to solve a delicate population problem. Animal Control officials said it is legal for people to remove…
FOLSOM (CBS13) – It’s a comeback that people would rather leave in the past. Sacramento County is now the second in the region asking vaccinated people to mask back up indoors as only 47% of residents are fully vaccinated and cases continue to surge. Reactions were mixed. “It feels like groundhog day again, it’s enough already,” said Erik Larson, shopping in Folsom. “We definitely need to go back to masks,” explained Ina Tompkins. Todd Kugler at Merlo Family Estate Vineyards explained they have no plans to require masks. “What was the point of getting the vaccine?” he questioned. “We’ve taken the vaccine, we have taken the steps to move forward from all of last year and now you’re telling us that wasn’t enough.” Sandra Munoz Braidman owns the Candle Bar and La Vintage Pink Door in Folsom and welcomes seeing everyone’s full face. “I will not ask my customers to wear a mask,” she said. “We have free choice in our country to do what we feel safe doing.” Some shoppers wonder if masking is warranted. “I understand what they are trying to do there,…
