  • Notorious 86-year-old jewel thief arrested again

Payne, whose rap sheet details more than 20 arrests, has stolen about $2 million worth of goods over the last six decades, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. They later identified the alleged shoplifter as the 86-year-old Payne, who apparently attempted to hide items from the pharmacy, electronics and grocery departments of the store.

Payne put some of the stuff in her purse, a Walmart shopping bag and a shopping cart, the employee said, according to a Chamblee police report. A documentary called "The Life and Crimes of Doris Payne" is now available on Netflix.

According to court documents, Payne was also arrested in December 2016 for shoplifting at a Georgia mall when she tried to steal a $2,000 necklace.

The notorious worldwide jewel bandit dubbed "granny gem thief" was back in custody on Monday after shoplifting at a Georgia Walmart, police said. At the end of March, she was sentenced to 120 days of private house arrest and was banned from all malls in DeKalb County, Georgia. Payne had been nabbed in Atlanta in October 2015 after she was caught allegedly shoplifting a pair of $700 earrings from the Saks Fifth Avenue in Phipps Plaza.


In an interview with The Associated Press a year ago, Payne said "I was a thief". The documentary contains mugshots and arrest records from 1965.

Her attorney told judges in Fulton and DeKalb County that she was too sick to stand trial.

Payne's advanced age and diminutive appearance betray her smarts.
