They're not sending their best.

Mauricio Ortega was named in Mexican media as the journalist -- and memorabilia collector -- accused of stealing Tom Brady's highly prized 2017 Super Bowl jersey.

The tweet above alleges in Spanish, "Mauricio Ortega 'former director' of La Prensa was who stole #Brady jerseys and more! #Rata #Ladron #NFL." One Mexican news site reports he's an NFL memorabilia collector who's shown up at auctions. La Prensa is a prominent Mexican publication.

TMZ has posted video it says is of the suspect; the footage was captured by Fox and ran during Super Bowl 2017.

The name was released in Mexican media after Houston police and the NFL confirmed on March 20 that the heist was solved; the NFL said two of Brady's Super Bowl jerseys were found. The same suspect is accused in the media of also possessing Von Miller's helmet, according to TMZ. Authorities have not yet released the suspect's name, and there is no word of an arrest.
The wall just got 10 feet higher.
