Year Old Notorious Jewelry Thief Arrested Again

Doris Payne was arrested at a Walmart store in Chamblee, in Georgia, with $86.22 (£66) worth of items, police say. In an interview for a special called "The Life and Crimes of Doris Payne" she bragged about her skills as a jewel thief.

Payne was arrested in Chamblee for shoplifting an alleged $86.22 in items ranging from electronics to grocery to pharmacy products. "We're talking about what an 86-year-old woman needs to survive on a day-to-day basis, food supplies and medical supplies".

Payne told the AP she realized a simple distraction could make it easy to slip out with a fancy trinket in hand after a friendly store owner let her try on watches as a child and then forgot she had the jewelry on.

She has been arrested multiple times for stealing almost $2 million worth of jewelry over the past 60 years.

Doris Payne's likeness-or, more specifically, her mugshot-has become nationally known over the years as she continues to rack up arrests into her eighth decade.

Payne was found wearing an electronic ankle monitor after she was placed on house arrest from a previous shoplifting incident in December.

Her career as an global bling bandit spans six decades.

Payne was allegedly caught on video walking out of the high-end department store after slipping a $690 pair of Christian Dior earrings into her pocket.

Payne was arrested in 1965 in Cleveland, Ohio (left) towards the beginning of her criminal career.

In the documentary film, Payne bragged of stealing at least $2 million in jewelry, in the US, Paris, Monaco and Tokyo.

In the documentary, Payne says, "There's never been a day that I went to steal that I did not get what I went to do".

"I understand that the shopkeepers have a different opinion, but they all agreed she was charming and friendly and nice", Von Helms told the Journal-Constitution. "I regret getting caught".

In the documentary, she revealed how she first learned her trademark distraction trick as a teenager when a store clerk eagerly ditched her when a white customer came in.
