ATLANTA -- Authorities are investigating a robbery that took place at the home of Atlanta Braves legend Hank Aaron late Sunday night.  Sgt. Greg Lyons said an arrest would be coming soon.  

Authorities discovered that Aaron's southwest Atlanta home had been burglarized around 11 p.m. Sunday evening. Aaron told police he had missed a call from his alarm company and asked a neighbor to check out the home the next day. 

When the neighbor noticed a window had been shattered, he called police.  

Once on the scene, officers discovered glass inside and outside the home, and the slugger's two BMWs missing.   An entire box of jewelry had been cleaned out and closets ransacked after the burglars cut electrical wires and alarm service wiring.  

Authorities were able to collect fingerprints as evidence on the scene to aid in locating possible suspects. 

Friday morning, APD authorities located one of the missing vehicles on the 2900 block of Landrum Street and returned the vehicle to Aaron's home.  Later the other vehicle was located.

Lyon said significant leads are being followed, but would not go into details about when an arrest would happen.
