86-year-old jewel thief steals $86 in Walmart items

Notorious 86-year-old jewel thief Doris Payne arrested again — at Walmart

On Monday, the 86-year-old is accused of stealing several items in various departments throughout a Georgia Walmart store.

The silver-haired swindler - whose exploits were documented in the 2014 film "The Life and Crimes of Doris Payne" - insists she's now negotiating a book deal and has plenty of cash to pay for her shopping.

Atlanta Police call Payne a career criminal whose modus operandi was to trick unsuspecting clerks in jewelry stores into showing her various diamond rings and, in the process, confuse them to the point that they forgot how many items they'd taken out to show.

Payne has a record for stealing jewelry from high end stores dating all they way back to 1965.

She has been arrested multiple times for stealing almost $2 million worth of jewelry over the past 60 years. I regret getting caught, ' she said in her documentary.

Stealing her first diamond when she was 23-years-old, Payne has never shied away from admitting to her crimes.

Following her arrest this week, Payne was charged with multiple counts of theft by shoplifting.

Less than four-months ago Payne was in court where she was sentenced to time served, house arrest, and probation. She was charged with theft by shoplifting and is free on bail. "This doesn't fit into anything she has done before and we are going to look at the video and see what's going on, see if this is maybe forgetfulness", he added, according to WFAA, affiliated to ABC News.

Born in 1930, Doris Marie Payne is believed to have stolen over $2 million in jewels over the past six decades. Payne, however, contends that she put items in a shopping bag and that she thought she told the cashier. She was also on probation at the time of that arrest for swiping a pair of $690 Dior earrings from another Atlanta-area mall. "We're not talking about high-end jewelry", he told the Associated Press.

The police report doesn't list the items that Payne allegedly tried to steal.
