Tom Brady can rest easier tonight as the person that stole his Super Bowl 51 jersey has been caught. Mauricio Ortega is the man that is being accused of taking the football player's jersey. Ortega was a director of Mexico's La Prensa and had just resigned days before the news came up today. The publication has released a statement where they completely shun Ortega's actions and claim not knowing anything that took place.

The release says that Mauricio Ortega had quit his post as La Prensa's director on March 14 citing personal issues. La Prensa accepted his resignation because Ortega had been talking about difficult times related to family health concerns. "With total surprise and deception, today, we have received noticed of the actions presumably by Martín Mauricio Ortega Camberos, on February 5 at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas, where Super Bowl LI was celebrated," the statement read.

"Editora La Prensa S.A. de C.V., in case of being true, reproves Martiín Mauricio Ortega Camberos actions, that took advantage of his job pisition and used La Prensa to obtain accreditation and have access to the game, press conference and other areas of NRG Stadium," the statement continued. La Prensa goes on to say that the publisher had no idea of what Ortega had done and nobody has contacted them for information.

Tom Brady released a statement thanking authorities for recovering his jersey: "I am happy my jerseys from SB 49 and SB 51 have been recovered, and I want to thank all of the law enforcement agencies involved. I know they worked hard on this case -- and it is very much appreciated. Hopefully when I get the jerseys back I can make something very positive come from this experience."
