Cops told Fox5 that the vehicle was taken while the five-time Grammy award nominee was pumping gas in Buckhead just after midnight on Tuesday. The !ncid*nt reportedly happened at the QuikTrip facility on the 700 blo*k of Sydney Marcus Boulevard.
Capt. Graham of the Atlanta Police Department said: “It only takes a second for someone to jump in your vehicle and take off.”
Police have urg-ed motori*ts not to leave the engi-nes of their cars running while they refuel.
Americans should contact the Atlanta Police Department if they have any information that could assist officers. The investigation remains ongoing.
It comes as an Atlanta lawmaker called for all gas stations in the city to be fitted with security cameras in a bid to reduce crime.
Councilwoman Natalyn Archibong wants cameras to be installed at every fuel pump.
She told Fox5: “It is a common occurrence. It is not an anomaly. It is a significant enough c**** and a consistent enough c**** that it warrants this !nterv-ention.”
Singer-songwriter Akon, 48, is known for the 2004 song Locked Up, and the album Trouble that was released in the same year.
