One man was arrested and two suspects are being sought in the burglary of Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski's house.
While the Patriots were playing in Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis on Feb. 4, police were called to Gronkowski's house in Foxborough, Massachusetts, for a burglary.
According to a heavily redacted police report, the break-in at Gronkowski's home happened just five minutes after he scored his first of two touchdowns.
The report shows the burglary happened at 8:50 p.m., during the third quarter of the Patriots' game against the Eagles.
