Popular American singer, Akon has filed a report that his car has been stolen by an unknown person from a gas station.
The car was reportedly stolen as the singer was pumping gas into his car on Monday night, May 24 in the Buckhead neighborhood of Atlanta.
According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the singer made a quick stop at a gas station to fill his white Range Rover up with gas.
He left the car running with the keys inside the vehicle, so he could fill up the gas tank. Before he was finished, he noticed someone taking off with his car, with his valuable items, including a $25,000 diamond necklace, a Louis Vuitton bag, and his iPhone.
Akon phoned the police, who arrived at the gas station at 11:59 p.m. He told cops that a dark-colored sedan followed his SUV when it made a right onto Sidney Marcus Boulevard. Surveillance footage of the theft confirmed his account.
A police report stated that the video showed the sedan as it pulled into the station right next to the singer’s SUV.
Shortly, you can see the suspect get out of the passenger seat of what looks to be a black, four-door BMW sedan, get into the driver’s seat of the victim’s vehicle and drive off with the black BMW following right behind,” the report read.
Akon reportedly used the FindMyPhone app to track his phone and find his car since his phone was left in the vehicle when it was stolen.
He was first led to Lawton Street in southwest Atlanta, but when police went to that location, they were unable to find it.
Afterward, the app traced the vehicle to a Forest Park, where it was recovered by the Forest Park GA Police Department and returned to Akon on Tuesday morning (May 25).
So far, no arrests have been made in connection with the theft of his car.
