(Winnipeg Free Press) Good goalies steal hockey games all the time. Cases of beer, on the other hand…
In what may be the most Canadian crime in recent memory, a man wearing “goalie pads, blocker and trapper and carrying a goalie stick” was evidently looking for post-game refreshments and broke into a Russell beer store early Monday.
“It was different,” RCMP Cpl. Brett Church said Thursday. “I’ve never seen that before. Very bizarre.”
The thief had help. An accomplice threw a rock through a glass door and went into at the vendor at about 2:40 a.m., and was followed inside by the nefarious netminder.
“He was wearing everything but a (goalie) mask,” Church said, adding the man had a tuque pulled down over his head.
Yep, those crazy Canadians
