The home of Clay Honeycutt, a houseguest on the next season of Big Brother, has been burglarized.
According to the Brazos County Sheriffs Office, the former Texas A&M football player's home in College Station was hit by burglars this past weekend, TMZ reported.
Several guns were allegedly stolen as well as a 70" television, a black Kindle Fire, an iPad, an Apple laptop and a leather jewelry box among other items valued around $4,510 total.
Honeycutt's upcoming stint on Big Brother might be the reason behind the crime. He's currently sequestered from the outside world, as the series' seventeenth season premieres June 24. The incident allegedly happened shortly after Honeycutt left his house, and his family believes the burglars waited to strike at the opportune time.
Honeycutt's family have been trying to reach him, according to TMZ, but are struggling to make contact because of the show's strict rules. His loved ones fear his jewelry box contained a sentimental ring he had won from his college football days.
