UPDATE: Brady’s Super Bowl jersey found in Mexico; ‘Always knew media grabbed it’ Patrick says


Authorities have recovered Tom Brady’s Super Bowl jersey in Mexico, according to Houston police chief – and former top cop in Austin – Art Acevedo.

Acevedo confirmed via Twitter on Monday that Houston police, joined by federal authorities, tracked down the game jersey belonging to the New England Patriots quarterback.

“Proud @houstonpolice Major Offenders Divison traced Brady Jersey to Mexico & it has been recovered with help of FBI & Mexican authorities,” Acevedo posted online.

Earlier Monday, the NFL issued a statement saying that its security staff assisted the FBI and other authorities in finding the jersey, estimated to be worth about $500,000, according to Houston police.

Brady led the Patriots to an overtime Super Bowl victory last month and was named the game’s MVP.

"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 its statement.

"The items were found in the possession of a credentialed member of the international media. Due to the ongoing investigation, we would refer any additional questions to the FBI," the NFL statement said.

The league also said a second Brady Super Bowl jersey was recovered, the one he wore in his victory against the Seattle Seahawks in 2015. 

Acevedo did not mention an arrest or identify any suspects.

Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, who had invited the Department of Public Safety’s Texas Rangers to join the posse on the hunt for the jersey, posted a statement on Facebook on Monday.

"I knew once the Houston Police Department and the Texas Rangers were on the hunt the jersey would be found,” Patrick wrote. “I always suspected someone in the media grabbed it because no one connected with the team would take it and the media was the only other group who had access to the locker room and would be carrying something to stuff it in.”

Patrick warned: “Note to the international media: Don't Mess with Texas."
