On August 15th at 3:38 a.m., a break-in occurred at a beer store vendor in Russell, Manitoba. Video surveillance caught two men entering the store and stealing cases of beer.
The first man was wearing mitts/gloves, a large coat, ball cap and had his face covered.
The second suspect that followed was dressed as a goalie.
However, he may have been a defenceman or forward in disguise as he was wearing jersey #17 – a non-traditional number for goalies.
He is described as having a medium build, wearing a blocker, trapper and carrying a goalie stick.
Anyone with information about this theft or has played against a goalie matching this description is asked to call Russell RCMP.
