Akon’s ranger rover has been stolen.
The singer had his SUV stolen while he was fueling up the vehicle at a gas station in Atlanta Tuesday night.
“It only takes a second for someone to jump in your vehicle and take off,” reps for the Atlanta Police Department told their local Fox outlet of the high-profile theft, which occurred just after midnight at the QuikTrip facility in Buckhead.
Police report that Akon, 48, was pumping gas on the passenger side of his Range Rover when someone reportedly jumped in the running automobile and sped away. Fortunately, the “Don’t Matter” artist wasn’t injured during the ordeal.
The celebrity car theft comes a day after Atlanta City Councilwoman Natalyn Archibong proposed requiring city gas stations to equip all their pumps with continuous security cameras to deter auto theft.
However fresh reports coming in says the SUV has now been found.
