The Wall Street Journal: Tom Brady’s missing Super Bowl jersey found in Mexico
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady’s missing Super Bowl LI jersey has been recovered, the NFL announced Monday.
Brady reported that his jersey was stolen from his bag in the Patriots locker room after the Feb. 5 game at NRG Stadium in Houston. According to Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo, the missing piece of memorabilia, valued at $ 500,000, made it all the way to Mexico.
“Our investigators developed information from an informant here in Houston that led them to Mexico,” Acevedo said during Monday’s news conference. “As a result of that investigation, we were able to work with the FBI and Mexican authorities to respond to the suspect’s known location and look for the jersey.”
Pointing the finger at a “credentialed member of the international media,” the NFL announced that the jersey Brady wore while quarterbacking the Patriots to victory in Super Bowl XLIX in 2015 was recovered as well. The U.S. Attorney for Texas’ Southern District is preparing to bring charges, Acevedo said, but he would not elaborate on the suspect or the location of the recovery.
