Houston Police Chief Says Department Has More Important Things To Worry About Than Finding Missing Tom Brady Jersey
Tom Brady‘s Super Bowl jersey is still missing, and it doesn’t sound like Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo is losing any sleep over it.
The jersey Brady wore while leading the Patriots to their historic comeback win over the Falcons in Super Bowl 51 went missing shortly after the game. On Monday, Texas Lt. Governor Dan Patrick called in the Texas Rangers to assist the Houston PD in finding the jersey. However, on Tuesday Acevedo told 104.9 The Horn that HPD is not obsessing over the fancy sports shirt.
“It might be the highest priority for [the] lieutenant governor, I can tell you we had three homicides the night of the Super Bowl in the city of Houston, and we’d like to find it, but I don’t think we’re burning the midnight oil worrying about a jersey,” Acevedo said. “It’s just not the biggest, greatest importance in the big scheme of things. I told those guys, ‘Hey guys, we’ll give it a run, but let’s keep things in perspective, it’s a jersey.’”
Acevedo also made sure to let everyone know the theft was not the Houston PD’s fault.
“The truth is that the NFL handles security inside the locker rooms.”
So, in short, if you were hoping the Houston PD would pull out all the stops to locate the valuable piece of NFL memorabilia, don’t hold your breath. They’ve got more important things to worry about.
