Hotel Vegas is looking for the man who appears to have stolen money from the east side bar late on Saturday, July 18. As seen from security footage posted on Facebook by co-owner Brian Tweedy, the suspect grabbed the money collected from the evening’s cover charge ($7 per attendee) from the woman at the door at 1:38 a.m., and ran out of the venue. Almost $1,200 was believed to have been taken. It was meant to pay the bands performing that night.

"Nothing like this has ever happened before," Tweedy told Eater, "and to target the entertainment money seems extremely low given the state of the Austin live music scene." He added that Hotel Vegas paid the bands using the bar’s money. Tweedy filed a police report, but the bar is still looking for any tips. Watch the video below.
