BURBANK, Calif.  — Police in Burbank were beefing up their presence at the Empire Center on Tuesday in anticipation of a car enthusiast “flash mob.”

A similar event organized over social media last year attracted hundreds of people and their custom cars to the parking lot, and police expect more of the same this time around.

“We are aware of it,” Burbank Police Sgt. Darin Ryburn told the Burbank Leader. “We have the resources available to address any traffic or criminal issues that arise.”
