According to the Attleboro Sun-Chronicle, 26-year-old Shane Denn was arraigned in Wrentham District Court, and bail was set at $100,000. Denn was ordered to stay away from Gronkowski and his home; he was also given a fancy new piece of jewelry – a GPS-tracking device.

Police have said Denn has a lengthy criminal record; he was arrested last month in Maine.

Denn was brazen enough to wear a Patriots T-shirt to the brief arraignment.

Numerous items stolen

Gronkowski returned to his home in Foxborough on Feb. 6 to find it had been burglarized. Three guns, which belonged to Gronkowski’s roommate, as well as watches and other items were taken from the home; some of those have been recovered.

Two other men have been charged in connection with the robbery: 31-year-old Anthony Almeida is facing multiple charges, including breaking and entering, and 28-year-old Eric Tyrell is charged with receiving stolen goods. Both are also Massachusetts residents.
