When officers stopped a woman they observed struggling to push a baby stroller Friday in east Bakersfield, they made a surprising discovery.
Upon inspection, no baby was in the stroller. Instead, $6,000 worth of quarters were.
Bakersfield Police Department detectives were conducting a follow-up in east Bakersfield when they stopped to check on a woman, 29-year-old Darrin Fritz, who was walking on the 5100 block of Ojai Court, according to a BPD news release.
