Rob Gronkowski Burglary Suspect Found In Maine
The third suspect in connection with a Super Bowl weekend break-in at New England Patriot Rob Gronkowski's house has been found in Franklin County.
26-year-old Shane Denn was arrested by Lieutenant David Rackliffe of the Franklin County Sheriff's Office on Thursday, after a call came in that a man and woman had tried to force their way into the caller's Chesterville residence at around 7:00 in the morning. Lt. Rackliffe noticed a vehicle with a Massachusetts registration coming off the Chesterville Road and pulled it over.
The driver originally gave a fake name and date of birth, so the vehicle was searched and a number of stolen items and evidence of criminal activity were found. Denn was arrested for operating without a license. Once he was at the Franklin County Detention Center, the suspect admitted to his true identity. He was charged with being a Fugitive from Justice and giving a false name and address, and more charges are expected.
Denn is accused of breaking into Rob Gronkowski's house while the New England Patriots player was away at the Super Bowl. An Apple watch, a Rolex watch, and some rare coins were recovered by investigators, after the burglary, but three handguns taken from Gronk's roommate have never been found.
Denn will be extradited to Massachusetts to face additional charges for this and several other robberies. Two others, Eric Tyrrell and Anthony Almeida, have pleaded not guilty to charges connected to the break-in.
