Two Atlanta men, Navada Jackson & Desmond Sigers was arrested stealing charity Christmas.

Atlanta Police have charged two men who broke into Hosea Feed the Hungry Sunday morning after they tried to steal toys that were meant to be given to children in need. A staff member told police he could hear people inside the building just before 10:30 in the morning, and then found a hole that had been cut out of the door.

 CBS Atlanta talked to Hosea Feed the Hungry staffer Andre Williams, who said he wondered why the men tried to steal toys that the organization gives away for free."Don't break in our place," Williams said. "We give the toys away! We don't charge for food, we don't charge for clothing. We give stuff away. All you gotta do is come in and sign up and we'll give it to you!"

 Police said they saw one of the suspects, 32-year-old Navada Jackson, tried to shove a bag of toys out of the building. He was charged with burglary and giving a false name to police. The second suspect, 28-year-old Desmond Sigers, was also charged with burglary. Both Sigers and Jackson have criminal records. Sigers was booked in to the Fulton County Jail four times between 2003 and 2006, most recently in June. Jackson was booked into the Fulton County Jail five times between 2003 and 2011. Williams said this is the third time this month that someone broke into Hosea Feed the Hungry. That makes one woman, who donated toys since the attempted theft, wonder if her donations will be safe. "It kind of bothers me because of this area that we're in," said Sholanda Phillips. "It should have more security and the fact that they don't... it's bad. Police were able to locate all the toys and return them to the charity.
