HOUSTON -- Car thieves are using a new handheld gadget to break into cars. The device works like a keyless entry remote.

Police and carmakers can’t figure out how it works.

According to one auto theft expert, most cars run on computers so thieves are using technology to get inside.

Investigators in Texas confiscated one of the devices. They are hoping to figure out how it works.
