Investigators declined to release the name of the suspect due to the ongoing investigation, according to Sgt. Greg Lyon.
“We do anticipate additional arrests and will release all of that information when doing so will not hinder the investigation,” Lyon told The AJC late Monday.
Aaron was in New York for the All-Star game when he got a call from his alarm company. The following day, he asked a neighbor to check on his home, according to a police report.
The neighbor saw a broken window at Aaron’s house and called police, who arrived to find the home ransacked.
As an Atlanta Brave, Aaron broke Babe Ruth’s record of 714 career home runs on April 8, 1974. He hit his 755th and final home run on July 20, 1976, a home run record that stood for almost three decades.
