While baseball legend Hank Aaron and his wife were away, burglars forced their way into the couple’s southwest Atlanta home, stealing jewelry and two BMWs, police said Friday.

Aaron, 79, missed a call from his alarm company Sunday night and asked a neighbor to check his house Monday morning, according to an Atlanta police report obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
The neighbor saw a broken window at Aaron’s house and called police.

Responding officers arrived to find parts of the house ransacked and two BMWs missing from the garage, the police report states.

“On the side of the residence, the electrical panels were on the ground and the wires were cut inside the box,” the report states. “The generator was on due to the electrical wires being cut. The wires were cut from a panel located in the rear of the residence as well.”
