She's just wanting to fight back when it comes to crime. Now a Somerset woman has come up with a creative way, that was sparked after a story on WKYT.

Sally Robinson says she got the idea from a Crime Stoppers story here on WKYT last year.

Her new "Purse Keyper" attaches purses to shopping carts and will soon be sold at Dillard's stores at 100 locations across the country.

"You all will have something about purses being stolen out of the shopping cars so I thought I needed to create something to carry my purse and protect it", says Sally Robinson.

The device will be launched tomorrow at the Dillard's in Fayette Mall. From 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. there will be tea and cookies for the event, and from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. there will be wine and cheese.

You can also pick up the Purse Keyper at the Dillard's at the Mall of St. Matthews in Louisville.
