Pleasanton police are investigating the case of the stolen stroller.
Tiffany Martin, 25, has two daughters, Chloe, who's 4, and Sophia, who's 2, and about a month ago, picked up a stroller on sale at Toys R Us for a little over $100.
"I'm employed at KFC, but I used to work at Jack in the Box so I popped in to see some friends," Martin said, explaining she had to leave the stroller outside to bring her daughters in.
"I was in there visiting for about 20 or 30 minutes," she said. "We came out and my daughter said, 'Mommy, the stroller's gone.' I was kind of surprised, because you have to break it down (to transport it)."
She searched the area near Valley Avenue and Santa Rita Road, then called police. Officer Robert Shuffield also searched the area without luck, and no one saw who took it.
Without a car, that double stroller was her only way to get her girls to and from their day care center, La Petite Academy, on Valley Avenue.
"If anyone knows anything that could help, that'd be great," Martin said. "My older daughter (now) has to walk with me to school. It's over a mile,"
