… Steal Guns

Some scumbag burglars just hit the home of a former Texas A&M football — stealing several guns — and he may have been targeted BECAUSE he’s a contestant on “Big Brother.”
As we previously reported, ex-Aggies defensive back Clay Honeycutt will be a houseguest this season — and is already in sequester, cut off from the outside world, as the show requires.
But after he left this past weekend, burglars struck his home in College Station, TX … stealing all sorts of Honeycutt’s belongings … this according to the Brazos County Sheriffs Office.
Among the items reported stolen:
— A 70″ TV
— A black Kindle Fire
— An iPad
— An Apple laptop
— Three handguns (a 9mm, a .22 and a .45)
— A leather jewelry box
The estimated value of the stolen goods: $4,510.
We’re told Honeycutt’s family believes the jewelry box may have held a ring from his A&M playing days, but they aren’t sure and they’ve been unable to contact him … per the show’s strict rules.
Family members tell us they believe the timing is no accident … insisting the burglars waited until Clay left for the show to strike his home.
The investigation is ongoing.
