Rob Gronkowski returned home to Foxborough, Massachusetts, to some devastating news, and it had nothing to do with football. The New England Patriots star’s home was burglarized Monday, just one day after he and his teammates lost Super Bowl LII to the Philadelphia Eagles. According to Foxborough Police Chief William Baker, officers received a call to Gronkowski’s home at 6:18 p.m. Monday. “Whether you’re Rob Gronkowski or Bill Baker, being the victim of a residential property crime like that is unpleasant,” he said during a press conference Tuesday. “So out of respect for Mr. Gronkowski’s privacy and because this is an active and dynamic criminal investigation, we’re not going to be releasing any information right now about what was stolen or whether any suspects exist.”
Gronkowski’s home, located in the town of Foxborough which is about 22 miles outside of Boston, is comprised of five bedrooms, and in the words of a 2015 Sports Illustrated profileon the athlete, is “bigger than a McMansion, smaller than an actual mansion.” Perhaps the most intriguing part of the home isn’t even the home itself, but the “Sinners’s Bus” that the athlete sometimes has parked in his driveway: a white party bus that comfortably seats eight that he bought from a church in Long Island. The football player previously lived in a Tampa Bay mansion with custom fish tanks, but sold it for $2.4 million before moving to Massachusetts. At the time of the Sports Illustrated profile, Gronk was living with a roommate—a friend named “Goon” who also served as his chauffeur, contractor, and bodyguard—in the five-bedroom home.
