Opportunists can strike anywhere, as "Real Housewives of Atlanta" cast member Kim Zolciak and family learned. In March 2018, someone lifted a Chanel purse, a Chanel wallet and three credit cards from her daughter's Mercedes G63 while it was parked outside their north Fulton home. The bandits racked up more than $4,700 in purchases before the cards were deactivated, police said at the time.
In 2016, someone slid into Queen Latifah's ride while she was filling up at a south Fulton County gas station and took off. The entertainer had been in town filming episodes of the show "Star," and whoever made off with her wheels zoomed away with a necessary contract inside, she told police at the time.
Luckily, the Mercedes-Benz S63 was recovered with the vital paperwork still inside. The joyriders also left behind lemonade and fruit punch bottles, a Fulton police report said.
Authorities made a number of arrests after a Buckhead jewelry store popular with celebrities was hit. Atlanta, Fulton County and Cobb County investigators teamed up to recover items worth as much as $10 million taken from Icebox Diamonds & Watches.
Speaking of jewelry, someone took $750,000 worth of jewelry — wedding rings included — from Tameka "Tiny" Harris' Lamborghini SUV, Atlanta police reported in October.
Also last year, someone took cash and jewelry and other items worth nearly $500,000 from rapper Young Dolph's car while the Mercedes-Benz G63 was parked at a Fairburn restaurant, while a friend of "Love and Hip Hop" star Alexis Skyy had her Maserati stolen from an Atlanta gas station while the two women were putting air in Skyy's tires.
