“Sondi said she was frightened by loud noises that had come from the front of her home, so she took her two boys, hid in a bedroom closet, and dialed 911,” the outlet reported.
An Atlanta police officer that was off-duty arrived and saw a man wearing a mask fleeing the property, before eventually getting into an SUV and taking off. The suspects entered Carter’s house after shattering a window. Cops discovered $16,100 in $100 bills scattered outside the gated home, as well a Glock 26 with an extended clip that they believe belonged to the thief.
The cash police found was only a part of the $100,000 Carter kept in a brown bag in his closet.
Carter officially announced his retirement from the NBA on June 25, 2020, after the league had suspended its season following the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Over his 22-year NBA career, Vince played for eight teams: the Toronto Raptors (1998-04), New Jersey Nets (2004-09), Orlando Magic (2009-10), Phoenix Suns (2010-11), Dallas Mavericks (2011-14), Memphis Grizzlies (2014-17), Sacramento Kings (2017-18), and Atlanta Hawks (2018-20).
Carter, 45, who now works as an ESPN analyst, has not publicly commented about the burglary.
