Man arrested in burglary of Pats' Gronkowski's home

March 25. 2018 12:04PM

A 31-year-old man has been arrested and two men remain at large in the burglary of the Massachusetts home of New England Patriots star tight end Rob Gronkowski following the team's Super Bowl loss, police said.

Anthony Almeida, 31, of Randolph, was arraigned in Wrentham District Court on Friday on charges of breaking and entering, receiving stolen property and malicious destruction of property, the Foxborough Police Department said on Facebook.

Police are still searching for Eric Tyrrell, 28, and Shayne Denn, 26, in connection with the burglary on Feb. 5, the day after Gronkowski's team's upset loss to the Eagles.

Gronkowski's chauffeur and security guard, Robert Goon, posted on Friday a photo of the two men on Twitter and wrote "You better hide I'm coming" after police announced the arrest.

An Apple Watch, a Rolex Watch and two rare coins from the 1800s have been recovered. Firearms owned by Goon have not yet been recovered, police said.

Like many of his teammates, Gronkowski has a home in Foxborough, about 25 miles south of Boston that is home to Gillette Stadium, where the team practices and plays.

The 28-year-old athlete, now in his eighth NFL season, is one of the better known faces on the Patriots, cheered on by fans both for his catches as well as off-season antics that have included serving as the celebrity host of a Caribbean cruise following the team's 2016 Super Bowl victory.
