Early Monday morning, the NFL confirmed Tom Brady's stolen jersey from Super Bowl 51 was discovered. Not only that, but Tom Brady's jersey from Super Bowl 49 was also found, and there could be more, according to Fox Sports' Jay Glazer.
The NFL insider appeared on FS1's "Undisputed" Monday to provide some additional details into the discovery of Brady's jerseys. In the process, he revealed the Denver Broncos believe this culprit also took Von Miller's helmet and/or cleats. The connection between all items is that they werememorabilia from the Super Bowl MVPs.
Glazer also added"there's other things," although he did not elaborate fully as to what else could be stolen.
As for the Brady heist, Glazer said NFL security, Patriots security and the FBI collaborated and have "zeroed in on a person of interest." He revealed the suspect somehow snuck into the team's locker room after the game.
"He actually, from what I’m told, they have him going into the locker room right behind Bill Belichick as if he’s with the team," Glazer said. "Goes in there, loiters around a little while and is seen leaving the locker room — this is the video they’re trying to look at right now — seen leaving a little bit later with something under his arm."
From Glazer's comments, it doesn't sound like they could tell what was under their armbut it's suspicious that they came in with nothing and left with something.
Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo told FOX26 they found the suspect 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 federal charges are pending against the suspect. The NFL described the suspect as "a credentialed member of the international media." Glazer claimed this person "posed" as a member of the media, and was not actually affiliated with anyone.
