When the season started, the Braves were on the road while a suspected burglar stole five guns, including an AR-15 rifle, and $20,000 in cash from the Atlanta home of Braves right fielder Nick Markakis.
Police received a call on Friday, March 29 from Markakis’s neighbor. The neighbor told police someone was in Markakis’s home. When officers arrived, they found a broken front window and an open front door. Markakis was in Philadelphia, with his teammates, for a road series against the Phillies.
Police are searching for the suspect.
