Following the New England Patriots 41-33 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LII Sunday night, reports emerged that Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski’s house had been robbed on early Monday evening.
Foxborough police chief William Baker confirmed that the police department received a call at 6:18 p.m. on Monday about this burglary, but did not release any more information due to the investigation being ongoing.
“Out of respect for the homeowner’s privacy and because this remains a very active and dynamic criminal investigation, the police are not releasing any information about items stolen or possible suspects as this case moves forward,” Baker said in the statement. “We will have no further comment on the case until the case is solved.”
Baker added that the police department is treating this just like any other property crime investigation.
USA Today added that, according to their scanning of a police scanner at the time of the robbery, police responded to the call and spoke “with the homeowner there who was away on his trip. His house was broken into. Multiple safes, possible guns taken.”
The Patriots returned to the Boston area Monday afternoon, not even 24 hours after their Super Bowl loss. Gronkowski totaled 116 yards in this game while adding two touchdowns.
Perhaps the biggest story emerging in the post game press conferences with Gronkowski was his unwillingness to commit to playing in the NFL next season.
