Gronk robbery suspect caught
FARMINGTON, Maine (AP) — A third suspect wanted in connection with a burglary at the home of New England Patriots’ tight end Rob Gronkowsi has waived extradition from Maine, where he’s in custody.
The Sun Journal reports that Maine prosecutors declined to prosecute 26-year-old Shane Denn on charge of driving without a license and giving a false name to police. Instead, they proceeded Friday with extradition.
Denn will remain in jail in Farmington until Massachusetts police retrieve him.
Two other men, Eric Tyrrell and Anthony Almeida, have pleaded not guilty to charges in connection with the February break-in.
The burglary happened while Gronkowsi was away at the Super Bowl.
Denn also was wanted in connection with several other attempted robberies in Massachusetts.
