The theif who grabbed both of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady’s Super Bowl jerseys is Martin Mauricio Ortega Camberos, a former employee of Mexico’s largest media company OEM (Organización Editorial Mexicana), but resigned on march 14th for personal reasons.
As an employee of the OEM-owned “La Prensa” newspaper, he had access to the Pats’ locker room for both Super Bowls and reportedly for the one in between (He’s also suspected of lifting Von Miller’s helmet, according to reports).
On Tuesday, OEM issued an apology (in Spanish):
… and translated (via PFT): “We are surprised and disappointed to receive today the allegations of the behavior of Martin Mauricio Ortega Camberos on February 5 inside the NRG stadium in Houston, where Super Bowl LI was played,” “La Prensa, if the accusation is true, fully condemns the behavior of Martin Mauricio Ortega Camberos, who took advantage of his position and used La Prensa to access the field, press conferences and other areas of NRG Stadium.”
“Without commenting on the truth of the allegations,” the statement said, “La Prensa offers a public apology to our readers and the Mexican society.”
