Suspect in R. Kelly burglaries in custody

- The man who police say stole and sold items from two of R&B singer R. Kelly's homes is now in custody.

Alfonso "Doc" Walker has been charged with two counts of burglary, two counts of theft by taking, and two counts of theft by deception.

The thefts were discovered on Nov. 26, when a housekeeper arrived at one of Kelly's rental homes to find it ransacked.

When officials went to check another of Kelly's homes they found it burglarized as well.

Items stolen include a gem-crusted hoodie, memorabilia from the musician, and plenty of furniture. The total value of the items remains unknown, but could be worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, police said.

Police said Walker told them over the phone multiple stories about why the items from were taken from the home.

"The first statement to investigators was that Mr. Kelly owed him money. He's said things as, 'I'm being set up,'" said Captain Chris Byers.

Police said Walker agreed to come to the police department last Tuesday to sort out details of the incident but has not done so.

Authorities have been in contact with two people who were sold items belonging to Kelly. They have since returned those items. Police told FOX 5 News they would like to hear from other people who currently have items belonging to Kelly and who paid funds to Walker.

Anyone who has purchased R. Kelly's items is asked to call Johns Creek Police.

Representatives for R. Kelly released a statement thanking the police for their quick work in arresting Walker.
