Published Oct. 8, 2005

A couple reported to authorities that someone stole their car last week with almost everything they owned inside.

The 1979 Chrysler Cordoba was stolen Thursday from outside the couple's room at Suncoast Motel on U.S. 19 in Hudson, according to Pasco Sheriff's Office reports.

"We lost all our clothes, money, food stamps _ everything we had was in that car," said Denise May, the car's owner. "I don't even own a pair of shoes now."

May said she and her husband, Rick, were staying at the motel for one night until they could move into a mobile home in Moon Lake the next day. When they woke up, she said, the car was gone. May said she left the car unlocked.
