R. Kelly's Atlanta mansions emptied out while he was on tour

Cops: R. Kelly's Atlanta Homes Ransacked by Associate While He Was on Tour

TMZ reports that both of R. Kelly's Atlanta homes were cleaned out by burglars while the singer was on tour in New Orleans over Thanksgiving weekend.

According to the police report obtained by the local Atlanta news station, the housekeeper arrived to clean Kelly's home on Old Homestead Trail on November 27 only to find an nearly empty house.

Law enforcement sources tell us detectives happened to catch 3 men leaving one of the houses in a van, and brought them in for questioning. She walked into Kelly's house and found it empty. They told cops they'd been hired by one of Kelly's associates, Alfonso Walker, to sell everything because Kelly was moving his entire operation to Chicago.

Some of Kelly's neighbors also told police that they'd seen various "suspicious" trucks at the two homes. He's facing a number of charges, including burglary and theft by deception.

There's no current estimate of how much was taken from the homes because police are still waiting on that information from Kelly, but the individuals who bought items are listed as victims in the police report since they purchased them without knowing they were stolen.

In the latest report, Byers says that Walker is still on the run, although he'd planned to turn herself in on Tuesday.

Police arrested Walker, but not before he allegedly sold several of Kelly's items.
