Police are investigating after, according to a dispatcher, "multiple safes and possibly guns" were stolen from the home of New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski.

Foxborough Police Chief William Baker confirmed the break-in at a press conference Tuesday morning.

Dispatchers told responding officers that safes and possibly guns were stolen from the home, however, Baker said police were "not going to release the nature of the items stolen."

"Obviously the people who committed the theft know what was stolen. It's an investigative advantage for us to know that as well and not share it with the public, so I won't have any further comment on that."

Baker would not say exactly when the break-in occurred, but he did say that Gronkowski was away at the Super Bowl in Minneapolis at the time of the crime.

The Patriots returned to Foxborough late Monday afternoon after the team's 41-33 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LII.

Police responded to Gronkowski's home, located just a few miles from Gillette Stadium, Monday at about 6 p.m.
