R. Kelly can now breathe a sigh of relief after his home burglary suspect turns himself into police.
The R&B legend’s Georgia home was burglarized last week after someone forced themselves into the mansion located in Johns Creek, just outside of Atlanta. The singer posted a video on social media over the weekend showing his empty house where the burglar, who has now been identified as Alfonso Walker, took everything including electronics and jewelry. TMZ reported that Walker turned himself into Johns Creek Police Department on Monday, nearly a week after a warrant was issued for his arrest.
Walker was booked on 2 counts of theft by deception, 2 counts of theft by taking, and 2 counts of burglary. He faces years in prison if found guilty on all counts. According to the police report, Alfonso Walker hired other individuals to clean out R. Kelly’s house and later sold the stolen goods on the black market. Kelly identified the suspect as a part-time employee.
The burglary incident took place over the Thanksgiving weekend when the burglars hit R. Kelly’s two Atlanta properties cleaning them out of everything that they could get hands on. The thieves took TVs, furniture, washer dryer, and other household appliances are all gone.
