WSB-TV reporter Mike Petchenik reports that two of R. Kelly's homes in the Atlanta, Georgia metro area were robbed in late November while the singer was on tour. She walked into Kelly's house and found it empty. After being granted a search warrant for Walker's home, law enforcement found some of Kelly's property there. He has been charged with burglary, theft by taking and theft by deception. Police report that almost everything, including his furniture and electronics, were stolen from both of his properties.

When investigators visited another of Kelly's residences in the city, they then found it had also been burglarized. When police arrived, an individual participating in the removal of Kelly's stuff said he was told by an associate, Alfonso Walker, to do the job at the request of the singer, who was moving back to Chicago.

R. Kelly's team revealed to authorities that Alfonso Walker was merely a part-time employee. Police believe that Walker sold the singer's possessions.

We're told Walker was supposed to turn himself in Tuesday, but no-showed.

Kelly's spokesperson said he was thankful to police for their "swift and diligent work in determining the responsible parties".
