"She found that the place had literally been ransacked", Johns Creek Captain Chris Byers told WSB-TV, adding that everything in both homes had vanished.

Walker is now wanted on two counts of burglary, two counts of theft by taking and two counts of theft by deception.

"Police said Walker told them multiple stories of why the items from were taken from the home". Kelly's maid contacted police after finding the musician's Johns Creek home emptied.

"The first statement to investigators was that Mr. Kelly owed him money".

A lawyer for R. Kelly has not responded to requests for comment from the singer.
