Hank Aaron’s Atlanta home burglarized while he’s on vacation


The home of retired American professional baseball player Hank Aaron was burglarized while he and his wife were on a weekend getaway.

Aaron, 79, does have an alarm system; however, he missed the call from the alarm company sometime on Sunday evening. It was a neighbor who discovered the broken windows and missing cars on Monday and called authorities.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution obtained a copy of the police report which stated, “An alarm panel near the home’s garage had been pulled from the wall and its wires were cut and the alarm panel in the master bedroom was damaged, and three closets had been ransacked. Investigators believe assorted jewelry, the cars and their keys were the only items taken.”

Thieves got away with two BMWs and jewelry.

No arrest have been made in the robbery; however, both vehicles have been recovered.

Aaron, who played in the big leagues from 1954 through 1976, is a member of the Baseball Hall of Fame and most famous for breaking Babe Ruth’s record of 714 career home runs. Aaron holds his records as baseball’s all-time leader in RBIs and total bases.
