Burglar wearing goalie gear wanted in heinous Manitoba beer heist

Police in Manitoba are searching for two men wanted in a beer store robbery earlier this month in which one of the suspects used an unusual disguise. RCMP in Russell, Manitoba say one of the men was dressed up as a hockey goalie, “wearing a blocker, trapper and carrying a goalie stick.”

Surveillance video shows the two suspects stickhandling up to the establishment. They smash a door and make their way to the cooler where they grab several cases of beer before making their getaway.
“He may have been a defenceman or forward in disguise as he was wearing jersey #17 – a non-traditional number for goalies,” read a description from eagle-eyed police.

“Anyone with information about this theft or has played against a goalie matching this description is asked to call Russell RCMP.”
