WATCH - Man Steals A Lot Of Beer Dressed In Hockey Gear #STUPIDNEWS

August 29, 2016

Now THIS is exactly what Americans think of when we picture crime in Canada.

A guy broke into a liquor store in Russell, Manitoba, Canada a few weeks ago.  And he was wearing a GOALIE MASK and PADS, a hockey jersey . . . and he had a hockey stick, I guess in case he ran into any trouble.

He and a friend stole about $2,500 worth of Budweiser. 

The Mounties are trying to track him down, but the goalie mask did a good job hiding his face so they don't have much to go on.

Their only lead?  He might NOT actually be a goalie.  Their press release about the crime says, quote, "He may've been a defenseman or forward in disguise as he was wearing jersey number 17, a non-traditional number for goalies."
