96 vette ..... i looked in the hole the thieves left on the column
:doh:
Must be amateurs not to know your year has a security system ; Google VATS

column broken on the left side,
Flatbed the car home , is not going to be a 10 min fix

Most likely the crooks have damaged the contacts inside the key barrel that reads the resistor pellet on your key when they tried to force the lock.
If the computer doesn't read that the the correct key is being used , it prevents the car being started and driven off which is exactly what it did.
You will either have to replace the damaged parts where the key goes or do one of the work arrounds that removes the security system but that means the thieves
could have driven off in your car by punching the Ign switch out which they tried to do
