Monday, an unidentified man walked into Nanny Goats Cafe in Longview and took a donation box for Neal McCoy's East Texas Angel Network according to KLTV.

As seen in the video above, the man was very methodical about his approach. He stopped in front of the counter, looked around then put the box in his backpack.

The box is believed to have contained around $100.

"They're not only stealing from the families that we help, but from the people that work hard and go in there and donate cash or the change from checking out. So it's really from those people too. A real shame," network executive director Micki Strong told KLTV.

East Texas Angel Network founder Neal McCoy said, "We put our collection boxes around the city. He basically just stole the collection box off of the counter, and it was a calculated kind of thing because he came in with an empty backpack."

McCoy continued, "I hope he really needed that for something good. I hope he knows now that it is to help sick children and their families. Either way he stole and it's affecting the kids."

Anyone with information on this theft is asked to contact Longview Police.

If you see a man spontaneously combust, that's karma paying a visit for stealing the box.
