Vince Carter’s house was broken into on Father’s Day while the family hid in a closet, police say

A scary scene allegedly hit the house of former NBA All-Star Vince Carter on Father’s Day.

According to the Atlanta police report obtained by USA Today, Carter’s house was broken into, while his wife and children hid in a closet on Father’s Day. Carter was obviously far from home at the time.

Carter’s wife Sondi told police she was lying in bed with her two sons when she heard loud noises coming from the front of the house. She allegedly took her children and hid in the closet in the bedroom, then called an ambulance and sent a message to a nearby officer who was not on duty.

The suspects allegedly searched the house and fled when the police officer came off duty. A police officer said she saw an unidentified black man wearing all black clothes and a mask running on foot, and then jumped into a black SUV before losing sight of them.

As more units arrived on the scene, police found a large number of $ 100 bills – eventually counted at $ 16,100 – spilled outside the home, as well as a gold Dessert Eagle in a gun box and a black Glock 26 with an extended magazine. Desert Eagle was found to belong to Carter, while Glock is believed to be owned by the suspect.

Over the phone, Carter reportedly told police that $ 16,000 was only part of the sum of over $ 100,000 in cash stored in a brown bag in the primary bedroom closet.

The suspects allegedly entered the house by breaking through a window on the first floor, and one of them apparently left a fingerprint on the side door through which they escaped. Police were also allegedly provided with surveillance footage from the property, although none of them were facing the street.

No family member was reported injured in the incident.

Carter has retired from the NBA since 2020, after 22 seasons in the league. The probable member of the Hall of Fame is currently working as a basketball analyst for ESPN.
