Tom Brady jersey suspect was in Mexico

The stolen Tom Brady Super Bowl jerseys were found on foreign soil. That soil apparently resides south of the border.

Via FOX 26, Houston police chief Art Acevedo said that the suspect is in Mexico.

“The HPD criminal intelligence division detectives identified a suspect in Mexico,” Acevedo said. ” I’m proud to say as a result of their hard work, and with the assistance of the FBI and Mexican authorities, we believe we’ve recovered the jersey.  Further authentication is in process [of being completed].”

Acevedo added that the suspect had “legitimate access to the Super Bowl.”

In the aftermath of the Super Bowl, Yahoo! Sports reported that the authorities had determined that the jersey likely had been stolen before the media entered the locker room. Apparently, that wasn’t the case.

  1. The farther the NFL gets away from it’s own investigations the better they become. Weird.

    Maybe the NFL should take a lesson from this and get away from investigations and return back to professional football.

    All the more reason to build Trump’s wall!!

    ————————————————————–

    The wall is to keep people out, not people (with jerseys) in.

    My bike was stolen 10 years ago, I should call the FBI

  4. Mike Kensil is at it again! Remember, he’s the mastermind behind the NFL’s Deflategate scam. Goodell was so embarrassed in court and by the media (excluding B$PN) that Kensil was exiled. Below is a quote from PFT dated 4/28/16.

    “We needed a senior executive to work exclusively in this priority area,” NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy told PFT. “He’s been in Mexico City and China the last few weeks.”

    Kensil is in Mexico!

  5. Sure seem to be a lot of Trump apologists populating the comment boards.

    Curious to see such a disproportionate representation of Trumpian snowflakes taking umbrage at slights, perceived or otherwise.

    Poor donny.

    Quick! man the typewriters! Defend this amazing leader!

  6. So many parallels in this case. The guy that stole the $$$ jersey doesn’t need the money. Therefore, is it really a crime? Prior to Goodell’s questioning, the crook should just destroy the evidence. He will get a 4 game slap on the wrist.

  7. Looking for one and finding two was like locating an extra Shroud of Turin. I really am getting tired of all this winning!

  8. So, other reports indicate it was a reporter. Some media members are dishonest? Tell me it is not so.

  9. Thank God our national nightmare is finally over. We can all finally sleep again at night.

    I’m glad to see the FBI wasn’t wasting it’s limited time and resources on something stupid like identifying terrorists or foiling plots against the nation.

  10. The FBI has repeatedly closed terror investigations right before the terrorists killed dozens, including the Orlando nightclub shooting. At this point I’m just happy they finally caught somebody even if it was a jersey thief.

  11. No silly, the proceeds from the sale of the jerseys were going towards keeping the Clinton Foundation afloat as donations have dried up over the last few months (hmm…….wonder why?) The Clinton Global Initiative is already closing it’s doors. When the head of the foundation blows an election, I guess she can’t “repay” the “donations” in any way. Wink Wink!!

    You’re absolutely right about the parallels. So which whiny ravens lackey do you think set this one up? Same weasels as framegate perhaps? Guess someone is still upset that they didn’t know the rule book as well as that guy from NE.

  13. That’s one brazen sumbeach to actually go into the winning QB’s bag and steal a couple of jerseys after being given access, as a foreign journalist, to the inner sanctum of the biggest sporting event on the planet. In my best soccer announcer voice I’m yelling “JAAAIIILLL…JAAAIILLL….JAAAIILLL!

  14. It’s not a matter of money – but of principle. Not one, but two jerseys stolen by one person, on two separate occasions in a highly secured area. . What’s that say about the vetting of personnel allowed in the locker room? How about security? It’s more than theft, but also a potentially a matter of personnel security. Think big picture.

  15. All the snowflakes are coming out lol! go back to your safe places and shine your precipitation trophies…..thanks

  16. You pro wall people do realize that Trump is actually going to make the AMERICAN taxpayers pay for the wall, right?

    It is….people like the guy who stole the jersey

  18. Chris Berman did it! He’s retired sitting on a beach in Cancun and was probably thinking he could get away with it too if it wasn’t for those dang kids from the Scooby Doo gang that caught him!

  19. The international intrigue is making my mind go numb!!!!!!!!!!!!! Please please please catch this dastardly criminal before something else happens that is as really really really bad. Poor little Tommy Goldenboy will never be safe until there is justice for jerseys!

    The wall is to keep criminals and other deviants from coming in. This theft shows the general character of the people down there.

    It also shows your reading comprehension skills. Where did you read it was a mexican who did it?

  22. Wait just a second here……something stolen from Texas went down to Mexico?

    INCONCEIVABLE!

    Brock Osweiler’s jersey from the Mexico City game was also recovered. Whew!

    I think that one they found had simply been discarded on the way out of the stadium.

    And if your bike was worth a half million they would go find it.

  26. We were dead broke and in debt when we left the White House and after blowing this election and the foundation “donations” drying up…………we need the proceeds from jersey sales, before the FBI closes the investigation (working with the foundation’s ex-CEO for over a year) in the later part of the year. HELP!! We don’t want to be dead broke again…….but I’m not in a position any longer for quid pro quo!!

  27. Looks like he made a run for the border but had a taste for tacos and burritos [South Park reference]

    Glad for Tom Brady. If this clown had gone to Canada, the Canadian PM would give him sanctuary.

  28. They are reporting it was a credentialed member of the media! And it wasnt Barstool Sports, get on them Florio!

  29. The groundsman just had to take it into the room with no toilet to pee. He was only in there a minute or so…

    He burned the jersey when asked for it, just like he normally does with all the jerseys.

  30. Word is the jerseys are unwearable – way too tight because they won’t allow any air inside.

    Is your bike worth half a million? Is your bike likely on foreign soil? If so, yes you should call the FBI.

  32. I would use this opportunity if I were the NFLPA to call for tighter restrictions on access to the locker room. If they need access, the players and coaches should be directed to a media area, and reporters should not be allowed into the locker room.

    If they could steal a jersey (twice apparently) and escape without notice, what’s to stop someone intent on causing harm from entering the locker room as well? Time to get a handle on the media insanity. Besides, not all of the media members at the Super Bowl are football reporters. Many are just covering the spectacle of the SB. Do they really need reactions from the players right after the game?

  33. I understand this individual had a treasure trove of items from stolen from the lockers of minisoda players from this past season that commemorated their historic collapse of being the only team in league to twice start the season 5-0 and miss the playoffs.

    Well we now know the NFL wouldn’t stand a chance in he!! in finding it without their help.

    You are ignorant regarding how international wire transfers work. All US dollar ones — wherever in the world they originate — must necessarily pass through a US bank.

    Simple to place a tiny transaction fee on all US dollar transfers going to and from Mexico which would easily fund the build of the protective wall. Consider yourself a little less stupid now. You’re welcome.

  37. It’s a freaking shirt for crying out loud. You’d think his wife would’ve bought him another one by now just to make Tommy’s tears stop. Not to mention the tears of all the NE fans. Sheesh!

    No one cares. Tom Brady and the Patriots have made football boring.

    You know, you’re actually onto something. I was just thinking the other day, after watching a few NE winning SB videos during Blizzard Stella, that around 1970 or so, we wondered if they would NE ever make the playoffs. Now we only are left to wonder when the next Lombardi will arrive.

  39. 1) It’s a freaking shirt for crying out loud. You’d think his wife would’ve bought him another one by now just to make Tommy’s tears stop. Not to mention the tears of all the NE fans. Sheesh!

    Pats fans are enjoying wins from two of the last three Superbowls, those are tears of joy.

    2) Everyone citing “the wall “will help, do you think that sports reporting walked from Mexico, to Houston, and then back with the jerseys? Do you think if the wall was in place…? Never mind, your comments already tell me the answer. The same thing happened when you voted, you didn’t think this through for one minute.

    Well I gave Brady a buck on the handlebars when we were kids. I would think someone in NE would dish out the cash.

  45. I’m betting it was Inez Sainz. She could walk in and out of that locker room with an M60 and no one would notice.

  46. I don’t think the FBI cares about Tom Brady’s jersey per se. But over the years the public, especially those attending these big sporting events, are led to believe that the security at them is at the highest level for obvious reasons. They can be targets.

    I think it’s natural that the FBI would, and they should, be concerned about a breach of security at an event like this in the local police department as well as the NFL security.

    This time shirts. Next time could be something far more serious and I’m sure that’s what has them concerned.

    Well, who did it?

    ————————————————————

    Assuming that the guy is in Mexico. I’m assuming its RON MEXICO!!

  48. So much for unnamed sources’ logic or lack of it.

    Just before 10:17 p.m., the locker room was opened to the waiting media, which filed in and broke into groups to interview various players. Brady returned to his locker by 10:20 p.m. and looked into the bag in his locker. At that time, reporters standing nearby heard him tell an NFL employee that his jersey was missing from his bag. Within minutes, Brady and equipment managers were searching through lockers and bags and other parts of the room to see if the jersey had been misplaced.

  49. Grab and go: Footage from the New England Patriots locker room shows the man accused of stealing Tom Brady’s Super Bowl jersey before and after the theft (left entering locker room at 10:04pm and right exiting with shirt at 10:18pm)

  50. I’m so pleased that the resources of law enforcement, to include the FBI are being used to find a flippin’ shirt.

  51. The “Dreamers” declare that all things that are valuable in the US are theirs for the taking and that US Laws DO NOT APPLY to them, hence it is no big deal to break US border laws and enter the US whenever they want.

  52. Glad my taxpayer money is being well spent on tracking down a jersey. No serious crimes to waste time and money on.

  53. Please keep in mind while contemplating this dumb wall idea that going on at least a decade now illegals coming from Mexico has actually declined and that the vast majority of illegals are from Asia who let the Visas expire…

    They were used to trace a half million dollars of stolen property that had been transported accross state lines and as it turned out an international border too.

    These guys wanted to find it. The Houston police dept felt embarassed having this happen right under their noses and be a big blight at the end of doing an incredible job all week of handling the event. They had worked hard to earn a big public kudo and suddenly they were not getting it. They felt like their pride was at stake. The FBI too because it was a high profile case and they like to be seen solving those. NFL security would be pushing everyone as well since they also felt an affront.

    Ticked off police organizations dont rest.

  55. I remember thinking during Tom Brady’s Senior year, “This guy is going to end up as all-timer, his Super Bowl jersey is gonna get stolen from the locker room one time and wind up in Mexico”.
