The Falcons kicker ascended to stardom in 2020, making 37 of 39 field-goal attempts on his way to earning his first Pro Bowl selection.

Given his rate of success, the prime suspects might be fans of rival teams in the NFC South. 

There have been several thefts of celebrity vehicles in the Atlanta area this year. Titans cornerback Janoris Jenkins, R&B singer Akon and rapper Ludacris have been among those targeted.
