The NFL issued the statement that confirms that in a joint operation the Brady Superbowl jersey was recovered and now in the hands of the NFL.
“”Through the cooperation of the NFL and New England Patriots’ security teams, the FBI and other law enforcement authorities, the Super Bowl LI jersey worn last month by MVP Tom Brady has been recovered,” the NFL said in a statement released on Monday, March 20. “Also retrieved during the ongoing investigation was the jersey Brady wore in the Patriots' victory in Super Bowl XLIX against the Seattle Seahawks in 2015.”
With the help of Mexico’s attorney general’s office PGR, and the federal police, Tom Brady’s stolen jersey, was recovered in Mexico. This came after a request by the FBI for collaboration in the search, an informant came forward leading investigators to Mexico.
Federal Police and the PGR recovered the stolen jersey, at the home of Mauricio Ortega, a director of the newspaper La Prensa, federal sources said.
Ortega resigned from his position last week.
Further information was not made public at this time, but the theft of the jersey valued at 500k USD, is a federal crime in both countries.
