Atlanta Police Arrest Two Men Attempting To Steal Toys For Needy Kids

ATLANTA (WAOK)-A call from an alert employee at Hosea Feed the Hungry Charity Sunday morning foiled a plot by two men to steal Christmas from needy children. Atlanta police say officers were dispatched to a call of a commercial burglary at 1035 Donnelly Avenue SW, the location of Hosea Feed the Hungry.

Reginald Smith met officers when they arrived and advised police that he could hear the suspects inside the building near a hole that had been cut in the door.  32 year old Navada Jackson was seen by police through the hole as he was trying to shove a bag of toys out of the building.  There were already other bags of toys sitting outside the building that had been removed earlier.   Jackson was arrested at this time.

Officers continued to search the building.  29 year old Desmond Sigers was found hiding in between crates in the corner of the building near the hole in the wall. Both men face burglary charges abd Jackson is also charged with giving a false name to police.

Representatives from Hosea Feed the Hungry thanked police for their quick response that stopped the burglars in the act and saved Christmas for hundreds of needy children. The toys are scheduled to be distributed later this week.
