HOUSTON -- A woman blamed her smart key for getting her purse snatched at a gas station in southwest Houston.

Leann Hubert said she placed her purse on the front driver seat while she pumped gas. She left the door open.

Witnesses said a well-dressed woman in her thirties hopped in her car and stole the purse.

Shame on you, said Hubert. They need to get a real job.

Hubert did not lock her vehicle because she said her smart key was in her purse. The smart key unlocks the car when you are near.

In the future I will actually keep my smart key with me in my pocket, Hubert said.
