Dad arrested on suspicion of auto burglary while pushing son in stroller

Burbank police have arrested a man they say burglarized a parked car while pushing his 2-year-old son in a stroller.

Frederic Strobel, 31, of Burbank, was pushing his son in a stroller about 3:50 p.m. Tuesday in the 2600 block of Wyoming Avenue when he allegedly smashed the car window with a brick and stole a portable global satellite positioning device and CDs, authorities said.

Police said, he put the items in the stroller with his son and went on his way.

Strobel was arrested on suspicion of auto burglary and child endangerment. His son was released to his mother, although the Los Angeles County Department of Child Services will be conducting a follow-up investigation, police said.
