NORTH FULTON COUNTY, Ga. - The man accused of emptying R. Kelly’s homes while the singer was on tour and selling all the belongings to the highest bidder has turned himself in.
Alfonso Walker was booked into the Fulton County Jail on Monday.
Shortly after he was booked in, Walker was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital, but jail officials will not release details of why he was taken to the hospital.

Walker told police that Kelly owed him money and this was his way of getting it back.
He’s accused of clearing out Kelly’s two metro Atlanta homes.
Neighbors of the home in Johns Creek told Channel 2’s Mike Petchenik they just assumed the homeowner was moving because several trucks had been at the home for about a week.

“There were all kinds of strange vehicles and people coming and going from the house all times during the night,” one neighbor said.
Then last week, neighbor Mark Gibson said another truck showed up, and so did police.
"They blocked the guy in,” Gibson said. “One of the guys got out with his gun drawn."
"Ultimately led them to an individual that they say hired them that works for Mr. Kelly's organization,” Johns Creek Cpt. Chris Byers said. “They were told he was moving his organization out of Atlanta back to Chicago and was selling off all of his belongings."
Byers said Alfonso Walker was, in fact, selling each room of Kelly's homes to the highest bidder.
"They wouldn't sell an individual item for a certain price, but say, a bedroom for $6,000,” Byers said.
Channel 2 Action News reached out to a Kelly representative, but didn't hear back.
