    A man wearing hockey goaltending equipment broke into a Russell, Manitoba convenience store and stole three cases of Budweiser.

    According to the Winnipeg Free Press, the thief and an accomplice threw a rock through the store’s glass door before breaking in to take the brew.

    “It was different,” RCMP Cpl. Brett Church told the Free Press. “I’ve never seen that before. Very bizarre.”

    He later added, “He was wearing everything but a (goalie) mask.” The man reportedly had a tuque pulled over his head. A video of the Aug. 15 theft is above. Another similar robbery reportedly happened a day earlier.

    The manager of the store seemed to find humor in the heist, according to the Free Press.

     

    Jean Betke manager of the convenience store, told the  Free Press  the vendor was broken into the previous night. Early Sunday, a suspect threw a rock through the exit door, rushed in and grabbed two cases of beer.

     

    Early Monday morning, the rock went through the entrance door — and the bandits made off with three cases.

     

    “Budweiser,” Betke said.
