Stacy Sexton and her 18-year-old son, Dalton, had taken a weekend trip to Pigeon Forge to celebrate his upcoming graduation.

When they came home and saw the air conditioner on the ground with the window shut, Sexton says she knew someone had been inside and she called police.

Sexton says sometime between Friday at 5 and Sunday evening, someone took two flat screen tv's, Dalton's x-box 360 and all his games and jugs of coins they were saving for Dalton's prom.

But the thieves didn't stop there. They helped themselves to the fridge---nabbing two bags of chicken nuggets, hamburger meat and Ale-8.

They then stole brand new Laundry Detergent and 18 rolls of toilet paper, adding insult to injury for Sexton.

"I was more upset, you know, more irritated then cause I had just went grocery shopping before we left," Sexton explained. "I was more irritated then because that's more money I don't have and you're taking food away from my son."

Sexton says she hopes whoever is responsible will either return their things, or at least get caught.

As police continue to investigate, this family says they're making plans to move.
