Retired NBA star Vince Carter had nearly $100,000 in cash stolen from his Atlanta home in a weekend burglary, police said in a report released Wednesday.

More than $16,000 and two guns was recovered later outside his home in Atlanta’s Buckhead neighborhood, according to authorities. Carter told police the recovered money was just a small portion of $1000,000 in cash he kept in a bag in a closet, the report said.

Police said a front window on the main house was smashed and officers found “a large amount of $100 bills spilled on the ground” and a gold Desert Eagle pistol and a black Glock 26 pistol with an extended magazine outside, police said. The Desert Eagle belonged to Carter, but investigators believed the Glock was a suspect’s weapon, the report said.

Sondi Carter said that while she was in the closet, she could hear someone rummaging through different rooms, and police later said several rooms were in disarray.

Nobody was hurt in the incident.

A suspect or suspects were not named as of yet.
