Mexican journalist fingered for ripping off Brady's Super Bowl jersey

Tom Brady's last two Super Bowl jerseys both recovered

Report: Tom Brady's Stolen Super Bowl Jersey Found

The same man who stole Brady's jerseys reportedly is being investigated for stealing Von Miller's belongings at Super Bowl 50, which would mean he committed theft at three consecutive Super Bowls.

The NFL announced Monday in a statement that Brady's jersey has been recovered after being found in the possession of an unidentified member of the global media.

The NFL and the Houston Police Department announced Monday morning that Brady's stolen jersey had been recovered.

The missing jersey - and the subsequent investigation that stretched from Boston to Texas - captivated Patriots fans and social media for several days after New England's 34-28 overtime win over Atlanta. The league said it was recovered along with Tom Brady's jersey worn during Super Bowl XLIX against the Seahawks.

Curiously, the existence of a stolen Super Bowl 49 jersey wasn't much in the news despite claims that Brady brought it up in interviews following the theft (if he did, we haven't seen them). "So if it shows up on eBay somewhere, someone let me know, try to track that down".

According to Glazer, the Houston Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation worked in tandem to track the jersey down in Mexico.

Acevedo said police received a tip from an informant in Houston that led investigators to Mexico.

Acevedo declined to discuss the exact location of the recovery or details about the person suspected of swiping the memorabilia.

"We have been in contact with NFL Security regarding a Denver Broncos helmet that could potentially belong to Von Miller", Broncos spokesman Patrick Smyth told CNN. He was later captured on tape leaving "with something under his arm", Glazer said.

Acevedo repeatedly stated that Brady's jersey was not the department's highest priority over the past month and a half, but he did note it was the only blemish on Houston's week of Super Bowl festivities.

New England have won five of the past 17 Super Bowls, with Brady under centre every time.

A company official who was not authorized to discuss the matter publicly said on condition of anonymity that the former director was not part of the media outlet's Super Bowl coverage.
