Marlo Hampton One of the Celebrities Hit in a Rash of High Profile Atlanta Home Invasions

Real Housewives of Atlanta's Marlo Hampton is one of fifteen Atlanta area celebrities hit by a home invasion gang...

Police have solved a string of violent home invasions targeting celebrities across metro Atlanta.
Four suspected gang members are now in custody in connection to at least 15 home invasions over the past year.
One of those celebrities was Marlo Hampton of the “Real Housewives of Atlanta”, who told Channel 2 investigative reporter Mark Winne that she watched on her security system as armed, masked men kicked her door down making a loud boom.
The attempted burglary happened July 1 at her Sandy Springs home.
“When I heard the boom, when I heard my nephew scream -- and I knew that scream was a scream of fear -- my heart dropped,” Hampton said.
Police have now told her that her case is tied to other incidents.
Hampton said she went to a panic room and called 911. The suspects who kicked her door in fled possibly because she yelled.
Sandy Springs police were there quickly and she thanks God they were.
“I just thank God and we’re covered in the blood of Jesus and I’m here to share this story with you. But my main concern is, I want all the ladies … I want everyone to be aware if you are posting, if you do have luxury items, be careful,” Hampton said.
Investigators told Winne that the gang mostly targets the homes of high-profile entertainment, sports or social media figures with targets including players from the Atlanta Falcons and Atlanta United and a leading lacrosse player.
