Good news for R. Kelly- cops have ID'd the suspect who allegedly burglarized 2 of the singer's Atlanta homes

Walker's charged with burglary and theft by deception, and police said charges would mount as other unsuspecting customers come forward. She walked into Kelly's house and found it empty. Johns Creek police also responded to robbery at another of Kelly's nearby on homes on November 26.

Law enforcement sources tell us detectives happened to catch 3 men leaving one of the houses in a van, and brought them in for questioning. Investigators said they were able to tie the thefts to one of Kelly's associates named Alfonso Walker.

Some of Kelly's neighbors also told police that they'd seen various "suspicious" trucks at the two homes. They told Petchenik that they didn't know Kelly even lived at either residence.

One Snellville man who purchased items told Petchenik the situation has been a "nightmare" for him.

WSB-TV was first to report the news.

The suspect, Alonso Walker, who Petchenik described as an "associate" of Kelly's, is now on the run from the law after missing a December 5 appointment to turn himself in on theft charges.

In interviews with police, Walker allegedly said he sold the items because he felt he was "owed" money from the singer.

Kelly's spokesperson said he was thankful to police for their "swift and diligent work in determining the responsible parties".
