The infamous Cheeseburglar is still on the loose, and even a bounty of free cheese for a year hasn't resulted in his capture.

St. Boniface cheese shop Fromagerie Bothwell said on social media Wednesday that on the one-year anniversary of what the shop calls 'the most infamous break n’ enter in Winnipeg’s history', the culprit remains at large.

On July 31, 2018, someone broke into Fromagerie Bothwell shortly after midnight, and was caught on an infrared security camera rummaging through the store's kitchen, apparently looking for something.

Winnipeg Blue Bombers' defence has been stellar so far this season

Winnipeg Blue Bombers' defence has been stellar so far this season The offence has certainly been front and centre this season but the backbone of unbeaten Winnipeg's stellar start has been the Blue Bombers' defence. Quarterback Matt Nichols completed a club-record 19 straight passes Friday night as Winnipeg (5-0) earned a dominant 31-1 home win over the Ottawa Redblacks (2-3). Nichols finished 25-of-29 passing for 295 yards and two TDs while Andrew Harris had 131 offensive yards and a TD on 19 touches. Harris,  the CFL's leading rusher last year and chasing a third straight 1,000-yard campaign, is third overall with 441 yards but is averaging a gaudy 6.1 yards per carry.

Fromagerie Bothwell responded to the incident by sharing the surveillance footage online and offering a reward of free cheese for a year to anyone identifying the man.

So far, no one has claimed the prize, but the shop is still offering the one-of-a-kind reward.

"To this day he remains at large and the cheese bounty for his identification & arrest is still in effect," Fromagerie Bothwell said in a Facebook post.

The man is described as being dressed in all black, with a dark-coloured cap and black sneakers.

Historic touchdowns by Grant lift Bombers into top spot in CFL West Division.
WINNIPEG — Janarion Grant will have a special place in Winnipeg Blue Bombers' history, but he viewed his notable accomplishment on Thursday as a special-teams' effort. Grant returned a pair of punts for touchdowns of 76 and 83 yards in his CFL debut to help give the Bombers sole possession of first place in the West Division with a 26-24 victory over the Calgary Stampeders. It was only the eighth time in CFL history a player has scored two touchdowns in a game on punt returns, and the first for a Bombers player. “Really, it was my teammates,” Grant said. “They made the hole for me and I just did the rest.
