Canadian police are searching for some thieves that got away with more than $100,000 worth of hockey sticks from a sporting goods store.

One of the suspects used a rope to drop down from the ceiling of the store in Quebec. The store manager says he drilled a hole into the roof to get in and then roamed around the store for about an hour grabbing high-end hockey sticks.

“It’s amazing,” Monkey Sports manager Greg Goyer told CTV Montreal . “I’m also sickened. To go undetected that way and not really have a care.”

After the thief grabbed the sticks, he put them in a pile by the back door where an accomplice loaded them into a van and took off.
