Thieves stole nearly $100,000 during a robbery of NBA legend Vince Carter’s Atlanta home as his wife and kids hid in the closet.
Sandi revealed to police she was in bed when she heard a commotion coming from the front of the house. She reacted quickly, calling 911 before finding a place to hide. She ended up hiding with her sons in a nearby closet and told dispatch she could hear someone rummaging through different rooms, according to WSBTV.
Over $16k found outside the house, Carter claims $100k was stolen during the robbery.
As police arrived on the scene, they encountered a masked man wearing all black running away from the scene. The intruder made it to a getaway car and escaped, said the police.
This is where things get even more interesting. WSBTV reports that police found cash scattered all over the ground totaling $16,100 and two handguns. Why would the suspect drop two guns and one belonging to himself? Well, because he was probably struggling to carry a ton of cash. According to Vince Carter, the dropped money in front of the house was just a small portion of the estimated $100K in cash he had in the home.
