Nearly $100K stolen from ex-NBA player Vince Carter’s Ga. home
ATLANTA - Former Atlanta Hawks player Vince Carter’s home was burglarized of nearly $100,000 over the weekend.
It happened Sunday while Carter’s wife and sons were at home.
According to a police report, Carter’s wife was at the 10,000-square-foot home on Kings Road in Buckhead when she heard a loud noise at the front door and then someone rummaging through the rooms in the house.
The family hid in a closet and called 911, as well as texted the neighborhood patrol.
When officers arrived at Carter’s house, they found a man running from the home and getting into a black SUV but police were unable to catch him.
The incident report says the front window of Carter’s home was smashed and a bag with $100,000 plus several guns were stolen.
About $16,000 was left in the yard by the alleged thief.
Carter told police the recovered money was a small portion of $100,000 in cash he kept in a closet.
Carter played 22 seasons in the NBA and retired with the Hawks back in 2020.
Police collected fingerprints at the scene and continue to search for the person responsible.
