The family's car was one of eight vehicles car thieves hit early Tuesday morning.
Thomas County investigators say they started getting reports early Tuesday morning that cars were broken into at several homes right off Highway 202.
Investigators say the thieves got away with cash, GPS systems and even laptop computers.
"We were just upset because they had been through so much to get here, and so much with Katrina and to have this on top of that was very disturbing to them," said Julia Sawyer who housed the hurricane evacuees.
