Thanks to Texas cops, Tom Brady's Super Bowl jersey is safe and sound in Boston after being swiped from a stadium locker room in Houston, authorities said.

Following the 34-28 Super Bowl win over the Atlanta Falcons, Brady could be heard in the locker room searching for his jersey. The same man who stole Brady's jerseys reportedly is being investigated for stealing Von Miller's belongings at Super Bowl 50, which would mean he committed theft at three consecutive Super Bowls.

The suspect in question, according to the Houston Police Department, "had legitimate access to the Super Bowl".

The whereabouts of quarterback Tom Brady's game jersey from February's historic Super Bowl is no longer an unsolved mystery.

Mexican authorities found the missing jersey at the home of Martin Mauricio Ortega, a former director of Mexico's La Prensa newspaper, in a raid following a Federal Bureau of Investigation request, a government source told Reuters. The LI jersey alone was valued at $500,000, while the other items were not previously cited as missing. If this global media member is indeed prosecuted, that may lead to him giving up Miller's Super Bowl 50 helmet, too.

As this development unfolds, we'll bring you updates. "Hopefully when I get the jerseys back I can make something very positive come from this experience", Brady said in a statement released via his agent, Don Yee.

"Proud @houstonpolice Major Offenders Divison traced Brady Jersey to Mexico & it has been recovered with help of FBI & Mexican authorities", the policeman wrote on Twitter. "It's unfortunate because that's a nice piece of memorabilia", Brady said. "If it shows up on eBay or something, somebody let me know". Texas Lt. Governor Dan Patrick issued a statement on his Facebook account that closed with, "Note to the worldwide media: Don't Mess with Texas".

Acevedo said National Football League security, which is responsible for securing locker rooms at the Super Bowl, should "check their protocols" in the wake of the two thefts.
