Steinbach RCMP would like the public’s assistance to identify two men who broke into JT’s Store and Diner in Blumenort early Saturday morning.
Shortly before 4 a.m., the two men entered the store and stole a significant amount of cash and cigarettes. The men arrived at the store in a red vehicle, possibly a minivan police said in a release.
One of men was wearing a dark green New York Jets jacket, blue jeans, neon orange and black gloves. He was described as Caucasian, of medium build, around 6 ft. tall. The second man wore a black jacket. Both suspects had their faces covered with black balaclavas.
Anyone with information is asked to call Steinbach RCMP at (204) 326-4452 or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or www.manitobacrimestoppers.com or text "TIPMAN" plus a message to Crimes (274637).
