Manitoba RCMP search for beer thieves, one dressed in goalie gear

August 26, 2016 - 11:55 AM

RUSSELL, Man. - Manitoba RCMP are looking for a thirsty goalie.

Mounties say a man wearing hockey gear and carrying a goalie stick was one of two culprits who broke into a beer store in Russell on Aug. 15.

Video surveillance police posted on YouTube shows the pair lumbering off with a few cases of suds.

The nefarious netminder is seen sporting a trapper mitt, a blocker pad and a jersey with the number 17.

The video is titled: "#17 in your program but #1 on the Russell Manitoba RCMP wanted list."

RCMP say they need an assist from anyone who has information about the theft or who "has played against a goalie matching this description."
