The Wright Bros. Brew & Brew needs your help finding a thief.

Last week, a man walking into the Brew & Brew didn’t stop at the counter to ask for a cup of coffee or craft beer. Instead, he stole money from the East Fifth Street coffee bar, taking more than $200 in two separate trips.

KXAN reported that he wandered into a back room when no one was looking. “Surveillance video shows the man taking money from a corner of the back of the house, (where) employees are working behind this door about four feet away,” according to the news site. “The video showed the man in the back of the shop around 5:50 p.m. Thursday while workers were busy up front.”

Matthew Bolick, one of the co-founders of the Brew & Brew, was relieved that no one was hurt during the incident, according to KXAN. “If someone had come back and rounded the corner and seen him, what would he have done, and how would that have turned out?” he said in the article.

The Brew & Brew posted the surveillance video of the man stealing onto their Instagram, in the hopes of catching him before he robs someone else. If you recognize him, call the Austin Police Department or email the coffee shop at info@thebrewandbrew.com.
