Surveillance cameras captured all the fun people were having at the Silver Creek Beer Garden and Grille's fundraiser but they also caught a thief in the act.
A man introduced himself to volunteers as Heath Land, claiming to know organizers of the event. Heath Land is a fake name according to police.
The video shows the man talking to a female volunteer, who was collecting money at the back door. He told the woman he was there to relieve her. He takes more donations, before grabbing the envelope and running. He ran off with between $1,500 - $4,000, all of which was meant for Bastrop victims.
Restaurant owner and organizers say they made a promise to raise the money, and they will keep their promise. They have begun working to re-raise the stolen money.
