After a devastating 41-33 lost against the Philadelphia Eagles, Patriots star, Rob Gronkowski returned home from the Super Bowl on Monday to discover that his home had been robbed.
The football star had been in Minneapolis for the big game since last Monday so it is unclear when the robbery actually took place, but Foxborough Police Department said that Rob called at 6:18 pm Monday night to report that the burglary had occurred.
The dispatcher who received the call noted that “Multiple safes” and “possible guns” had been taken.
“I think it's kind of a tough combination, to have suffered this unfortunate loss and then to get home and be the victim of this kind of crime," Foxborough Chief of Police William Baker said during a media briefing on Tuesday.
A neighbor told Boston 25 that he noticed something was off on Sunday, but failed to alert the police.
Explaining, “we went past the house on Sunday, about 12:30-1 p.m., and I happened to notice the gate was ajar, which is very unusual. You never see that gate ajar. So, as a joke, my son and I said, ‘Gee, maybe we should just call the police or something.’ Now I’m sort of sorry I didn't,” confessed Tom Savino.
