JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The Jackson Salvation Army says someone has been taking the donations they collect, to help families in need.

A surveillance video obtained by MSNewsNow, from the Salvation Army, shows two men and a woman stealing, instead of dropping off items, from their donation center on Presto Lane.

The video was shot during the Easter holiday weekend.

Salvation Army Director of Operations Joe Miceli says they noticed their weekend donations were low, so they went back and watched surveillance tapes from earlier in March, and saw the same thieves, coming back time and time again.  Everything from clothes to entire bedroom sets worth hundreds of dollars, snatched up.
Normally those items are given to families in need or sold, and those same families given the proceeds.

Salvation Army officials say the female was driving a Honda Accord.  One male was in a greyish Pontiac Aztec, the other male in a white Nissan SUV.

The video has been shared with police, and if anyone out there recognizes these individuals, they're asked to call them.
