Police make arrest in burglary at Hank Aaron home

Atlanta police say they’ve made an arrest in a burglary at

baseball great Hank Aaron’s home.

Police Sgt. Greg Lyon said one suspect was in custody Monday


”We do anticipate additional arrests and will release all of

that information when doing so will not hinder the investigation,”

Lyon told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution


Police did not immediately release the name of the suspect or

other details.

The crime happened while the 79-year-old Aaron and his wife were

away from home in July. A neighbor saw a broken window, and

officers arrived to find two BMWs missing from the garage and

closets ransacked. Jewelry and car keys were the only other items


A Mobile, Ala., native, Aaron played from 1954 to 1976 for

Milwaukee and Atlanta.

As an Atlanta Brave, Aaron broke Babe Ruth’s record of 714

career home runs on April 8, 1974. His home run record of 755 home

runs stood for nearly three decades.
