Foxborough police Friday announced that a Randolph man was arrested on a handful of charges connected to a burglary of Patriots star Rob Gronkowski’s home. The house was robbed last month while he was away at the Super Bowl.

Anthony Almeida, 31, was arraigned Friday in Wrentham District Court on charges of breaking and entering in the nighttime, two counts of receiving stolen property, and malicious destruction of property, according to police.
