A two-sentence summary of the case ends the report.

“On 2/05/17, the city of Houston hosted Super Bowl LI in the NRG Stadium. Shortly after winning the game, New England (Patriots) quarterback Tom Brady noticed his game jersey missing from his locker in the (Patriots’) designated locker room.”

The day after the theft, Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick said he told the Texas Rangers, the state’s investigative agency, to assist Houston police with the investigation.

“It is important that history does not record that it was stolen in Texas,” Patrick said in a written statement.

So far, the jersey has not been found.
