The Federal Bureau of Investigation, or FBI, is not taking a break! With all of their work being piled up on their investigation of President Trump, Russian hacking scandal, and more, they still were able to get to the bottom of who stole Patriot’s Tom Brady’s Super Bowl Jersey!
The NFL’s own PR released a statement on Twitter:

Yes, you read that right—they didn’t just recover the jersey Brady wore last month during the Super Bowl LI, they also recovered the stolen jersey he wore during the Super Bowl XLIX in 2015!
Although the FBI was totally involved, we also have to mention other law enforcement agencies that helped recover these jerseys: the Houston Police.
Meanwhile, let’s talk about how much the jerseys were valued at around $500,000 American dollars—not that we’re surprised, but wow!
Tom Brady also said a few words via his agent , Don Yee, regarding the news on his jerseys:
“I am happy my jerseys from SB 49 and SB 51 have been recovered, and I want to thank all the law enforcement agencies involved. I know they worked very hard on this case — and it is very much appreciated. Hopefully when I get the jerseys back I can make something very positive come from this experience.”
The man who has been connected to the case has been identified as Martin Mauricio Ortega, who, this past Tuesday, resigned from his job as a director of a newspaper agency Diario La Prensa. Also a huge thanks to The Mexican Editorial Organization, a huge newspaper publishing company from Mexico for helping the FBI identify the suspect.
Officials also added that along with Brady’s jerseys, they also recovered Von Miller’s—from the Denver Broncos’ helmet, which went missing the night of the Super Bowl L. Houston officials are currently authenticating the helmet along with Brady’s jerseys.
Who else is anticipating that “something very positive” that Tom Brady mentioned?
