Bakerfield police noticed a woman struggling to push a baby stroller up an east Bakersfield street on Friday and stopped to offer assistance. But there was no baby in the stroller.
Instead the officers found $6,000 in quarters, which an investigation revealed had been stolen from a nearby residence, Bakersfield.com reported.
Darrin Fritz, 29, tried to run when police discovered the quarters but was quickly apprehended.
Fritz was booked on charges of felony burglary, resisting arrest, possession of burglary tools, receiving stolen property, and possessing a controlled substance, along with several outstanding misdemeanors. She is being held in Kern County jail on $65,000 bond with a court date set for September 25.
Bakersfield Now reported that the quarters were returned to their owner.
