Police confirmed February 5 that New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski's home in Foxboro, Mass., was robbed while the team was in Minneapolis for Super Bowl LII.

Foxborough Police Chief William Baker confirmed that items were stolen but did not say which items due to an active investigation.

A neighbor told Boston 25 News he came forward and spoke with police Tuesday morning after seeing coverage about the reported break-in.

Gronkowski finished the Super Bowl with 116 receiving yards and two touchdowns on nine receptions in the Patriots' 41-33 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.

In audio recordings of police scanner tape, however, a responding officer is heard saying "Multiple safes, possible guns taken".
