- A cleaning lady told police she was "freaked out" after finding R&B singer R. Kelly's Johns Creek mansion cleaned out.

This home belonging to R Kelly was completely cleared out while the singer was on tour.

Chris Byers told WSB-TV that Kelly's maid called police after she found one of the homes had been virtually emptied of valuables, including a diamond-encrusted hoodie.

Neighbors noticed suspicious vehicles at one of the homes over the course a week, with people moving items, but Byers said they didn't find it alarming because the men "were doing it in broad daylight and weren't acting like your typical burglar". After being granted a search warrant for Walker's home, law enforcement found some of Kelly's property there. Walker used to do "odds and ends jobs" for Kelly, Captain Christopher Byers of the Johns Creek Police Department told BuzzFeed News.

The biopharmaceutical company reported $2.20 EPS for the quarter, beating analysts' consensus estimates of $2.18 by $0.02. BidaskClub downgraded Gilead Sciences from a "buy" rating to a "hold" rating in a research note on Wednesday, August 9th.

When police arrived, they blocked the truck in.

Alfonso Walker, also known as "Doc", has been charged with burglary, theft by taking, and theft by deception. They told Petchenik that they didn't know Kelly even lived at either residence.

In the latest report, Byers says that Walker is still on the run, although he'd planned to turn herself in on Tuesday.

Police arrested Walker, but not before he allegedly sold several of Kelly's items.
