An insider is alleged to have orchestrated a brazen robbery of almost everything in R. Kelly's two Atlanta-area homes.
Police have issued a warrant for the arrest of Alfonso Walker, who had worked odd-jobs for Kelly. Police say Walker arranged to have moving trucks and movers go to Kelly's Georgia homes while Kelly was on tour and strip them of valuables under the cover story that Kelly was moving his entire organization to Chicago.
But instead, he sold off the property, room by room. Police have found one man who paid almost $6000 for some of Kelly's goods.
The authorities haven't been able to calculate the total cost of the goods stolen, which include several televisions, couches, tables, chairs, and a diamond-encrusted hoodie
“There was a bunch furniture and electronics stolen — a bunch of TVs. You’re talking a TV in every room of the house," a police spokesperson said.
Walker's plot was uncovered after Kelly's cleaning lady arrived at one of Kelly's homes on November 26th. She called the police and told them "everything is gone." Kelly was performing in New Orleans that night.
Walker is now wanted on two counts of burglary, two counts of theft by taking, and at least two counts of theft by deception. He was supposed to turn himself in on Tuesday but didn't show up.
One of the Atlanta properties Walker allegedly robbed was used to keep members of Kelly's notorious "sex cult."
