86-Year-Old Notorious Jewel Thief Doris Payne Is At It Again

86-Year-Old Notorious Jewel Thief Doris Payne Is At It Again

Payne's career as an global jewel thief spanned six decades, and her most noted theft was when she swiped away a 10-carat diamond ring worth over a half million dollars from Monte Carlo during a European trip in the 1970s. The charge is a misdemeanor. "She was at Walmart", her attorney Drew Findling told NBC.

Payne was booked and cited for theft by shoplifting - a misdemeanor.

Monday night's theft was far less ambitious: Payne is accused of pilfering $86.22 in items from a DeKalb County Walmart's pharmacy, electronics and grocery departments, multiple Atlanta media outlets reported Tuesday, citing a police report.

"This is a sharp contrast to all the cases in the past". She is believed to be responsible for numerous high-profile heists around the world, including the theft of a 10.5-carat diamond in Monte Carlo. "We're talking about what an 86-year-old woman needs to survive on a day-to-day basis, food supplies and medical supplies".

When Payne was arrested Monday, she was wearing an ankle monitor from a previous encounter and was let out on probation in DeKalb County, Georgia. As she tried to exit the store, she was apprehended.

"We called and talked to (officials in North Carolina) and they decided they wouldn't extradite her, which is often the case for a bunch of reasons", McCullers said in an earlier interview with the Atlanta Constitution-Journal. The security officer, who was an off-duty cop, and the Walmart employee nailed her as she left the store.

Authorities have said she has used at least 22 aliases over the years and most likely got away with more often than she was caught. I regret getting caught, ' she said in her documentary. In the 1970s, a jewelry industry trading group, sent out warnings about her.

Doris Payne poses for a mug shot after being arrested in southern California in 2013. She was held there for nine months before being released because they could not find the ring.
