The stolen helmet Von Miller wore in Super Bowl 50 is officially back in his possession.

On Wednesday, the Federal Bureau of Investigation returned the helmet that Mexican media executive Mauricio Ortega allegedly stole following the Broncos’ win over the Panthers in February 2016, the team announced.

Ortega also allegedly swiped two of Tom Brady’s Super Bowl jerseys, one of which Brady wore in New England’s Super Bowl win over Atlanta in February.

All of the items were recovered in late March. Orega resigned from La Prensa, the newspaper he worked for, that same month.
