Just a few days ago news broke that Akon’s Range Rover was stolen while he was pumping gas at a gas station in Buckhead. Authorities were able to find his vehicle the following day, and it looks like he has a forgiving heart behind the whole situation.
A source connected to the mogul exclusively told The Shade Room that Akon does not plan on pressing any charges against the suspect following the incident. The source said, “That was him before he was blessed with this success so he understands the struggle. He dosen’t plan to press charges so he hopes they take that as a second chance to focus on a more positive approach to getting out the hood and make use of the time they have out of jail to better their lives.”
As previously reported, authorities said that his SUV was taken while he was pumping his gas. Someone jumped inside the vehicle and just drove off. The incident occurred at the QuikTrip on the 700 block of Sydney Marcus Boulevard.
TMZ later released the audio of the 911 call Akon made as he reported the car stolen. The audio reveals that he was having a hard time with the operator as he tried to provide details about the incident. Nonetheless, authorities eventually arrived at the scene and took things from there.
The news of his stolen vehicle came after an Atlanta City Council member suggested to legislation that Atlanta gas stations set up cameras at each of their fueling pumps.
