HOLLYWOOD, SC (WCSC) -

At just six and seven years old, Henry and Preston Lambert are paying it forward a few days after their presents were stolen from them Christmas Eve.

"They wanted to give it back," says their mother Ashleigh Lambert. "They wanted to give it back to children that needed it more than they did and that in and of itself is what Christmas is about."

On Tuesday Lambert's home was broken into. She says the suspects came in through the bedroom window while they were at the Holiday Festival of Lights. The Charleston County Deputy Sheriff who responded to the break-in says he was deeply saddened to learn that the suspects had taken presents from two kids.

"What kind of people would be that low to steal gifts on Christmas Eve, especially kids, but that's a crime at any time it's bad, but this was a time of giving," says Deputy Sheriff Angel Torres.

Acting on those words, Torres reached out to Toys-for-Tots, and on Christmas morning he delivered a box filled with presents and two Walmart gift cards.

"There's not enough words I don't think that could express our gratitude for what he did," says Lambert

While the modest and humble Torres says it was a simple gesture, Lambert says he brought light to a very dark situation.

"In a lot of ways he was kind of our guardian angel through all of this. Coincidence, maybe, but we're glad that he was the one that came that night."

"My mother named me Angel, so there must have been a reason. I tried to live up to that."
