A Transcona butcher shop was the target for one hungry thief on Monday, who dug a hole into the wall to pilfer some sausages.

EastEnd Meats & Sausage says they were hit by someone who tunnelled their way in and made off with cash, food and a 13-inch butcher knife.

“Literally ripped open the wall just to steal sausage and some change,” manager Christopher Campbell wrote on Facebook.

The suspect entered through the store’s bathroom after puncturing the siding outside and eventually, the store’s interior drywall.

Campbell says anyone with information can contact Winnipeg police at (204) 986-6222. The Regent Avenue East store remains open.
