UPDATE: Police confirmed on Tuesday morning that Rob Gronkowski was the victim of a home burglary.
“There were items stolen,” Foxborough Police Chief William Baker said in a morning briefing, via ESPN.com. “We’re not going to release the nature of the items stolen.
“Obviously the people who committed the theft know what was stolen. It’s an investigative advantage for us to know that as well and not share it with the public, so I won’t have any further comment on that.”
While there is no word or record of what items were stolen, a dispatcher says “multiple safes and possibly guns” were taken.
Story is still developing.
Reports have been swirling throughout the night that the home of Rob Gronkowski in Foxborough was burglarized and police have launched an investigation.
Gronkowski had just returned home from Minneapolis, Minnesota where the New England Patriots fell to the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LII. Gronkowski was in Minneapolis since last Monday, so there is no word on when the burglary could have taken place.
Police reportedly were called to the home at 6:18 p.m. ET and remained on the scene for around five hours, according to a report from Evan White of Boston 25 News.
White also shared video of the scene on social media.
