    not sure why you’d just leave 100k cash in a closet like that…

    100k might be chump change to Vince, but to potential robbers, it might as well be a million dollars

    people really need to start making better moves

    But it’s in his giant mansion.
    This sounds like an inside job, still crime is insane now. Not even hoop stars are immune. I’m sure he’s got more than just ring cameras for security too
    Scary his wife and kids were there

    Not sure why all that security and the thieves had to know that the police would get their quickly was a deterrent. How emboldened they are.

    Actually property crime is still on a downward trend.

    It's gun crime (homicides) that is going up and up.

    Wow VC got a dessert eagle !

    Officers say they arrived a short time later and saw the front window of the home was completely broken. They also said they found $16,100 in $100 bills scattered outside the gated home.

    According to the docs, officers said they spoke with Carter on the phone and he said the cash was from a brown bag he had in his closet. He said the $16K was only a small portion of the $100K that was inside of it.

    Cops say they also recovered two guns outside the home -- a Desert Eagle that they say belonged to Carter, and a Glock 26 with an extended clip that they suspect belonged to the alleged thief.
