Fairburn Police Department Assistant Police Chief Anthony Bazydlo told WSB-TV the suspects could be seen in the video going to the vehicle three separate times, and that they didn’t appear to break the window until the third visit.  

Bazydlo said investigators noticed that when Dolph first exited his vehicle, the tail lights flashed three times indicating that it was being locked or unlocked.  

‘That’s interesting to us in terms of what was happening with the vehicle,’ he said. ‘Was it being locked? Unintentionally unlocked? We don’t know.’

Along with the jewelry, the thieves allegedly stole a Glock handgun, a Pirelli backpack, an iPad, and a $ 3,000 MacBook, a pair of AirPods and $ 2,000 in cash.

This is hardly the first time Dolph has been the victim of criminal activity.  

In February 2017  his vehicle was shot at more than 100 times in a drive-by in North Carolina. The incident inspired his hit single ‘100 Shots’.

Months later, the rapper nearly died in September 2017 after having been shot in front of a store on Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles. 

Fellow Memphis rapper Yo Gotti was later charged in connection with that shooting. 

Dolph has had four albums reach the Billboard Top 100, including his debut album King of Memphis in 2016.
