Reports say that Akon doesn't plan to press charges against suspects responsible for stealing his vehicle while he was pumping gas at a gas station in Buckhead. Authorities were able to locate Akon's car the day after it was taken. 

A source told The Shaderoom, “That was him before he was blessed with this success so he understands the struggle. He doesn’t plan to press charges so he hopes they take that as a second chance to focus on a more positive approach to getting out the hood and make use of the time they have out of jail to better their lives.”

The news of Akon's stolen vehicle came after an Atlanta City Council member suggested to legislation that Atlanta gas stations set up cameras at each of their fueling pumps.
