Atlanta police have made an arrest in the burglary of Atlanta Braves legend Hank Aaron's home, reports.

Jewelry and two BMWs were stolen while Aaron and his wife were at the All-Star Game in July. A name hasn't been released for who police arrested on grounds that the investigation is ongoing.

“We do anticipate additional arrests and will release all of that information when doing so will not hinder the investigation,” Sgt. Greg Lyon said.

Aaron received a call from his home alarm company while at the All-Star Game. He asked a neighbor the next day to check on his house, who found a broken window and called police.

Aaron broke Babe Ruth's record of 714 homers on April 8, 1974. His 755 homers are still tops in the all-time ranks.
