Former NBA Star Vince Carter’s House Robbed of Nearly $100,000 as His Wife and Two Sons Hid in Closet

As many fathers across the nation were celebrating their fatherhood on Father’s Day with loved ones, retired NBA star Vince Carter was filing a police report for a home invasion and burglary.

On Wednesday (June 22), the Atlanta Police Department released a police report from June 19 (Father’s Day and Juneteenth) stating that the former power forward’s home had been robbed of nearly $100,000 in cash. The incident took place at Carter’s home at approximately 11:50 p.m. ET on Sunday night while his wife Sondi and two sons were at home and in bed.

Sondi Carter reported to police that she was in bed with her two sons when she heard loud noises coming from the front entrance of their home. She swiftly grabbed her children and hid in a closet, as she called 911 and texted her neighborhood patrol.

While in the closet, Sondi shared with police that she could hear someone rummaging through their belongings in different rooms, which were left in disarray. According to the Atlanta Journal, the neighborhood patrol officer was the first to arrive on the scene where he actually saw a man fleeing in a black SUV.
