New England Patriots player Rob Gronkowski already was depressed after his team was put down by the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl 52. Thinking he’d go home and find some solace in the comfy confines of his suburban Boston home, Gronkowski instead came back to a crib on Monday that had been broken into–with thieves making off with safes and guns.
The Boston Globe reports that Gronkowski returned home to find a mess and then called 911. In a recording of the call obtained by the newspaper, the 911 dispatcher said multiple safes and guns were taken in the heist.
The Foxboro police chief said Gronkowski suffered “a double whammy”–a humiliating Super Bowl loss, and a home burglary.
“We are not releasing any information on the property stolen or possible suspects at this time to preserve the integrity of the criminal investigation,” Baker told HuffPost in an email Tuesday.
No one was reportedly home at the time of the burglary.
The Patriots came into the game as heavy favorites but were quickly overwhelmed by the Eagles, who won the game 41-33.
