I went into harbor freight to get a soldering iron and some other stuff. Drove here completely fine and a quarter tank of gas. I come out and start it and as I'm backong out of my spot it dies instantly. I shut the key off and started it and it just cranks. But now my fuel light is on and says I have no gas what so ever. Did someone just steal my gas? Or something else?
From the symptoms you described, it sounds like your fuel gauge sending unit is failing. When my '97 was only 3 months old, I had to have mine replaced under warranty while on a road trip. Just as the engine died on the highway, the fuel gauge showed 1/4 - 1/3 still left; however, the dealership found the tank was empty. Drive it for awhile but don't let it get past 1/2 tank, and it you don't experience the problem again, you'll know.

I guess of all places, Harbor Freight lot is not a bad place to break down. Easier access to the tools you need to figure it out!
Definitely check out the fuses, just because they are cheap and easy to replace if needed. You can probably get the fuel pressure tester at HF for about $30, and a tool to check for spark. Hopefully you have a multi meter with you so you can check the crank position sensor. Found a diagram of how and what to check for the crank sensor.
