JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - The Good Samaritan Center in the inner city of Jackson, has been burglarized four times in the past month.  Three of the break ins have been in the past week.  

Joanna Puddister, public relations director for the non profit agency, says what is strange about the break ins is that most of what has been stolen would be given away free to any poor person who came through the front door to get it. 

They have reported break ins to Police, August 15th and August 22nd, but nobody has been caught.  The agency is at the corner of Mill Street and Milsaps Avenue. 

The most recent items stolen were towels, sheets and blankets.  The agency collects all sorts of household items and clothing and donates it all to the poor who ask for help.
