Aaron Hernandez got security system at mansion because of break-in attempts
Aaron Hernandez recently outfitted his mansion with a sophisticated security system to combat multiple break-in attempts at the residence, his girlfriend reportedly told police.
According to the Boston Herald, Hernandez’s girlfriend, Shayanna Jenkins, told police “there had been several recent break-in attempts at their residence,” leading the former New England Patriots tight end to install a security system at his North Attleboro, Mass., home this spring. The break-in attempts also reportedly led Hernandez to lease his “flop house” in Franklin in late April.
At least 14 security cameras were in place around Hernandez’s home to record surveillance video. A police report states that a security expert came to the mansion in May to show Hernandez how to connect and disconnect individual cameras in case he didn’t want some things being recorded.
Hernandez reportedly destroyed the hard drive for his home security system and turned off cameras for a certain amount of time the night of Odin Lloyd’s murder.
Installing a sophisticated security system to protect your mansion is not at all unusual, but having several recent break-in attempts at the home could indicate some shady activity was being conducted there.
