"This was truly a cooperative effort, and we want to thank our FBI field offices in Chicago, Phoenix and Houston, the United States Attorney's Offices in the District of Connecticut, the Southern District of Texas, and the District of Arizona, and our Mexico City Legal Attaché," the FBI said in a statement.
Earlier this week, authorities identified Martin Mauricio Ortega Camberos as a suspect in the case. His former employer, Mexican newspaper La Prensa, issued an apology for the alleged theft by Camberos.

"In case of being true, La Prensa fully condemns the behavior of Martin Mauricio Ortega Camberos who took advantage of his position and used La Prensa to obtain a media credential to access the field, press conferences and other areas of the NRG Stadium," the newspaper said.
"We want to thank the FBI, the Mexican authorities and the many different local agencies that were involved in the investigation and ultimate recovery of Tom Brady's Super Bowl LI jersey," Patriots Chairman and CEO Robert Kraft said in a statement.
The FBI said the investigation is still ongoing.
