Someone stole money from Wright Bros. Brew & Brew last week, and the coffee shop and craft beer bar is looking for any help identifying the thief. The robbery happened on Thursday, February 4. KXAN reported,

[...] the man then made his way to the back door of their kitchen area. It has a lock but Matthew says the door is usually propped open to get some air flow. Surveillance video shows the man taking money from a corner of the back of the house, when employees are working behind this door about four feet away. The video showed the man in the back of the shop around 5:50 p.m. Thursday while workers were busy up front.

The man then returned and took more money from the room. Over $200 was taken. Those with information should email or call co-founder Matt Bolic at 817-980-8406.

Update, February 12: KXAN reported that the Austin Police Department was able to name the suspect: Ron Showels.

ATTENTION: This man robbed our shop on Thursday, 2/4. Please help us identify him so the APD can throw him in jail before he robs someone else. E-mail, message us directly or call our Founder Matt Bolick at 817-980-8406 if you have any info.
