A Career Criminal at 86

Doris Payne was arrested for attempting to steal a $2,000 necklace in an Atlanta store. Ms Payne has made a career of stealing jewelry. In fact, there was a documentary, “The Life and Crimes of Doris Payne”, of her made in 2013,when she was 80. She's been stealing since she was young, perhaps as young as 16. Her first of many arrests was in 1952 when she was 22. Her biggest success was in the 1970s in Monte Carlo where she stole a 10-carat diamond ring, valued at $500,000.
