CHICAGO, July 13 (UPI) -- Antoine Walker has kept his word and is vacating his expensive home in Chicago's River North area.

He was duct taped and robbed at gunpoint at the residence Monday.

Agent Mark Bartelstein told the Chicago Tribune Thursday the former Mount Carmel High School basketball star has left his $4.1 million home and is in the process of moving out.

Chicago police questioned two people after Walker's black Mercedes was pulled over for running a stop sign.

The suspects were caught with jewelry stolen from Walker's house and arrested.

Walker said at the time he was moving because he didn't feel safe.

"It's a high-profile area next to a high-crime area," one of Walker's neighbors, Jim Finkl, told the newspaper.

Finkl said he thinks Walker is making a mistake leaving his home.

Neighbors said three moving trucks showed up at Walker's home Wednesday at about 8 a.m. and left around 4 p.m.

Walker himself has been unavailable.
