ATLANTA -- Nearly $100,000 in cash was taken in a weekend burglary at the Atlanta home of former NBA player Vince Carter, according to an incident report released Wednesday by Atlanta Police.

Two guns and more than $16,000 was recovered later outside the 10,000-square-foot home in Atlanta's affluent Buckhead neighborhood. Carter told police the recovered money was a small portion of $100,000 in cash he kept in a bag in a closet, the report said.

According to the report, Carter's wife, Sondi Carter, was in bed with her two sons when she heard loud noises around 11:50 p.m. Sunday. They hid in a closet and she called 911, then texted her neighborhood patrol. A neighborhood patrol officer, who was the first law enforcement to arrive, saw a man fleeing in a black SUV but was unable to catch him, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

Neither Sondi Carter, nor her children, were hurt, but police said a front window on the main house had been smashed. Outside, officers found "a large amount of $100 bills spilled on the ground," along with a gold Desert Eagle pistol and a black Glock 26 pistol with an extended magazine, the report said. The Desert Eagle belonged to Carter, but investigators believe the Glock was carried by the suspect, the incident report said.

While in the closet, Carter later told police, she could hear someone rummaging through different rooms upstairs. According to the report, multiple rooms were in disarray and a gate at the top of the stairs had been broken off its hinges.

Fulton County property records show the home, built in 2016, is owned by Vince Carter, who played 22 seasons in the NBA before retiring with the Hawks in 2020. Carter bought the home, which sits on nearly an acre and a half of land, for nearly $7 million in August 2020, property records show.

A real estate listing described the property as a "family compound" with "state of the art home security" that includes 16 closed-circuit security cameras. A fence also appears to encircle the home, including an electronic gate across the driveway.

Police have not publicly identified a suspect, but the incident report said a fingerprint from the suspect was collected from the scene.

Carter, who now works as an NBA analyst for ESPN, has not responded to requests for comment from the newspaper.

Wait, help me out:

Wait ... what?

- My a*sumption is he has an alarm system, but his wife had to call 911?

- Is VC living in a neighborhood where anybody can pull up in there? Gated neighborhoods mean nothing if there is no one to man the gate.

- Why would they feel comfortable smashing the windows in? That's begging someone to have the cops on your helmet. You don't have time to take sh*t, because the pigs are coming with sirens blaring.

This was not a random act of robbery. For me to believe it was, I have to believe some randoms were able to get into VC's neighborhood, and felt comfortable enough SMASHING a window, thinking they wouldn't wake anybody up. That math don't work.

But, who knows.

That sh*t ain't making sense, bro'.

You smash the window in a mansion, and a*sume nobody is in there, or that there is no alarm to alert the cops?

I don't know about that, bruh.

Keeping a 100k cash in a bag in your house where your family stays is just silly... You can opt to have cash available but there's so many better ways than to put it in a bag in your closet.

VC put his fam at risk with this dumbass move
wait so let me get this straight

Because he kept $100K in the crib in the closest of his own home that noone knows about....he put his family in danger? cmon fam you being Monday Morning QB

A thief broke into a crib and came up nothing more nothing less but what we not gonna do is victim blame. Hell I keep racks in the crib imma barber...I got all types of stash spots in my crib, wifey don't even know just my younger brother

This is horrible, regardless if its an inside job or not, to be robbed with your fammo in the crib is something super traumatic. If I was Visual Concepts, I would look at moving for sure.

With that type of paper, you need two trained German Shepards or something. When I lived in the hood nobody was coming to my crib without my pits barking with the aggression of a young Mike Tyson.

It was definitely someone who knew what to look for. Probably someone who did some work in the home before. There's no way they are going through a house that big just to find a bag of money with enough time to get away unless they already knew what to look for.

they probably smashed that particular window because they already knew the layout of the security system. Wouldn't be surpised if these thieves have the ADT/Ackerman inside man connected. Spilling money and dropping guns seems like super amateur sh*t though. Maybe it's a friend of one of his kids or something or maybe a couins/family member that has been in the house before.

This is some crackhead auntie/uncle sh*t.

You’re mostly right but….an unmanned gate actually does ward off unprofessional robbers. The guys that just decide to rob a place one weekend might be deterred.

I too think this is fishy. I’m guessing that they don’t turn the alarm system on every night??? Some people get comfortable and stop using it. However, for the robbers to break a window is big time amateur hour.

In a house that big…10k sq feet. How do you know where to look for the bag of money??? (Inside job)

Did he really have $100k in cash? Or did he have $30k and inflated the claim?

He shouldn’t even be in Buckhead. Anything super close to Atlanta is horrible nowadays. Crime has skyrocketed in Buckhead in particular. You gotta go Atleast 40 minutes from Atlanta and live on the outskirts to live in peace. You don’t hear about this kinda stuff much in Snellville,Loganville,Buford,etc
