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 or text "TIPMAN" plus a message to Crimes (274637).

Tips sought for further thefts

Police also reported a break-in at a residence on Provincial Road 302 in the RM of Tache, sometime between 7:30 a.m. and 1:20 p.m. on Jan. 4. Electronics and firearms were taken from the residence, while a gray GMC pickup truck was seen in the area.

Tips are also been sought after a hydro pole was cut down in La Broquerie, between Dec. 15 and Jan. 4. The pole’s transformer was stolen with copper wire inside.

Anyone with information can also contact RCMP.
