New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez is now the subject of an arrest warrant drawn up on obstruction of justice charges based on the possible destruction of evidence in connection with the shooting death of his friend, ABC News has learned.

Police sources told ABC News on Thursday that a major investigative tool – the security system at Hernandez’s home, which included video – had been intentionally destroyed. His cell phone was handed over to police “in pieces,” and appeared to have been smashed.

Police also want to know why a team of house cleaners were hired on Monday to scrub Hernandez’s mansion, the sources said.

Evidence is mounting that Hernandez and the victim, Odin Lloyd, 27, a semi-pro football player, had been together at several nightclubs during the course of the weekend, including the night before Lloyd’s body was found, several law enforcement sources told ABC News.
