Atlanta's crime wave hit close to home for Chris "Ludacris” Bridges. The rap mogul's black Mercedes-Benz was stolen when he stopped at the ATM on Monday, 11 Alive News reports.

The Atlanta-based rapper flagged down a police cruiser around 4:40 p.m. after his car was stolen when he left it running while he stopped at the ATM.

He said he heard his car speed away while he was at the ATM and did not get a good look at the suspect.

Police used the car's electronic tracking device to locate an area off Lois Place where the car was driven. Some of the rapper's personal belongings were found discarded there but the car was gone.

Police continued to track the vehicle to a parking garage at 1270 Spring Street in Midtown Atlanta. An apartment complex called Spectrum shares the parking garage.

Police said the car was unoccupied and they returned the vehicle to Ludacris.

99 cars were stolen in the first week of January 2021 in Atlanta, according to 11 Alive News Of those, 76 cars had the keys inside -- or were running.
