WRENTHAM — Bail was set at $100,000 Wednesday for a Tewksbury man charged with breaking into the home of New England Patriot star Rob Gronkowski while the tight end was away playing in the Super Bowl.
Wearing a T-shirt with a Patriots logo on it, Shane Denn, 26, made a brief appearance for his arraignment at Wrentham District Court.
In addition to bail, Denn was ordered to stay away from Gronkowski and his home and must be monitored by GPS.
Denn is accused of breaking into Gronkowski’s Foxboro home on the night of Feb, 4 and stealing items, including three guns. The guns reportedly belong to a roommate of Gronkowski.
Denn, who police have previously said has a long criminal record, must return to court on Aug. 13 for a probable cause hearing.
Defense attorney Michael Stapleton declined to comment after the arraignment, saying another lawyer will be taking over the case.
Two other men have been charged in connection with the break-in.
Anthony Almedia, 31, of Randolph, is charged with breaking and entering, among other charges.
Eric Tyrell, 28, of Foxboro, is charged with receiving stolen goods. Police said he attempted to pawn two antique coins taken in the break-in.
Police said some of the stolen items, including Rolex and Appeal watches, were recovered when they executed a search warrant of Almeida’s home.
