The Jackson-Vicksburg Community Center says somebody stole toys meant for poor kids’ Christmas presents.

The center’s Zack Wright says the center still has clothes it collected. He says about $2,500 worth of toys were stolen late last week from a storage building in Byram. Wright says they were loaded into a rental truck about 2 a.m. Friday.
