The Houston Police Department released the police report taken on Tom Brady’s stolen Super Bowl LI game jersey. The report was apparently filed at 2 p.m. the day after the game.

The jersey’s value is listed as $500,000 and Brady is listed as the complainant. According to TMZ, a Houston police spokesperson said the value of the jersey was determined by Brady “or one of his people.”

The complaint’s summary reads as follows:

“On 02/05/17, the City of Houston hosted Super Bowl LI in the NRG Stadium. Shortly after winning the game, New England Patriot’s (sic) quarterback Tom Brady noticed his game jersey missing from his locker in the Patriot’s (sic) designated locker room.”


In the property section, the item that was stolen was listed as “Shirt/Blouse/T-Shirt,” while the brand/make is “NFL.” The description is NFL NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS FOOTBALL JERSEY.

Last week, Patriots owner Robert Kraft appeared on Fox Business Network, where he compared Brady’s jersey to a Picasso.

“It’s very sad to me that someone would do something like this,” he said, “and it’s like taking a great Chagall or Picasso or something. You can never display it.”

Kraft also said at the time that he thought a resolution would come soon.

“Somehow, I feel there’ll be some news that’ll clear this up in the not too distant future,” said Kraft. “I hope it’ll be cleared up soon. I think that a lot of people spend a lot of time looking into the matter and what happened, and I’d rather not say anything that would cause any problems in the work that’s been done. One way or another that jersey will be back.”
