Thief tunnels through outside wall to steal sausage, knife from Transcona butcher shop

WATCH: The owner of a Transcona butcher shop says someone tunneled into their store to steal some sausage, and a knife. Marek Tkach reports,

When they were done, we bet the thief had serious meat sweats.

“So some giant loser rat with tools broke into East End Meats & Sausage today,” wrote manager Chris Campbell.

Campbell’s 13-inch sabre meat cutting knife was also taken.

“Literally ripped open the wall just to steal sausage and some change. Anyone with any information please report to the police, or myself.”

Campbell told Global News that he’s “flabbergasted” anyone would go through so much effort to break in.

“They literally peeled open the side of the building like a tin can, like a kid that couldn’t get in,” he said.

“They must have had tools because they got through quite a bit of drywall and some wood just to get in.”

Campbell said his main concern is that a 13-inch sabre blade – which he uses as a work tool – is now in the hands of someone who could use it as a weapon.

Several photos posted online show a large hole in the side of the shop wall and bits of drywall scattered behind the building. Photos also show the office was rummaged through.
