Burglars broke into Rob Gronkowski’s Foxborough home while the New England Patriots tight end was otherwise engaged in the business of the Super Bowl. Gronkowski reported the break-in upon arriving home on Monday night.
A police dispatcher advised authorities that “multiple safes and possible guns” had been taken.
“It’s a tough combination to have suffered this unfortunate loss, and then to get home and be a victim of this kind of crime which really has a profound effect on everybody who is a victim of this crime when your personal space is breached like that,” Foxborough Police Chief William Baker said.
Gronkowski caught nine passes for 116 yards and a two touchdowns in the Patriots’ 41-33 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. He also made headlines after the game when he was non-committal about his football future.
