ATLANTA -- Atlanta police are investigating the burglary of baseball great Hank Aaron's Atlanta home while he and his wife Billye were away.

A police report obtained by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution (http://bit.ly/1dKoZeG) says the 79-year-old Aaron missed a call from his alarm company Sunday night and asked a neighbor to check on his house Monday morning. The neighbor saw a broken window and called police, and officers arrived to find two BMWs missing from the garage and closets that had been ransacked.

Jewelry and car keys were the only other items taken.

Police have located both vehicles and said they expect to make an arrest soon.

A Mobile, Ala., native, Aaron played from 1954 to 1976 for Milwaukee and Atlanta.

As an Atlanta Brave, Aaron broke Babe Ruth's record of 714 career home runs on April 8, 1974. His home run record of 755 home runs stood for nearly three decades.
