Claudia Jordan, welcome to Atlanta.
Car break ins in the city are a fact of life, unfortunately. (It happened to me multiple times when I lived in Kirkwood.)
Jordan, who moved to Atlanta in July to join the Rickey Smiley Morning Show and nabbed a role on “Real Housewives of Atlanta” as well, had her Porsche broken into and her laptop stolen earlier this week, she wrote on Instagram:
Wow….they stole my laptop. Devastated. $$$ Reward for whoever returns it- no questions asked and no charges will be pressed. I just need my computer for work. Police said my car was the 3rd car in 40 minutes
I just reached out to her for comment and will update if I get anything.
The Atlanta Police Department said it happened on Monday and her Apple Macbook Pro was taken in a large black handbag. She had left the parking garage at 11:45 a.m. that day and had found her car broken into at about 8:30 p.m. She had left her bag in the backseat of her car. A man called her and said he had found her bag, computer gone. He found the bag at 367 Woodward Ave. She tried to track the laptop but it was off at the time the police were there with her, the police said.
A similar crime happened to Steven Yeun, the actor who plays Glenn on “The Walking Dead,” in November, 2013. Read more about that here.
