Notorious Jewel Thief, 86, Strikes Again

December 14, 2016

ATLANTA — Police just outside Atlanta say a notorious 86-year-old jewel thief has struck again.

Dunwoody police say Doris Payne was arrested Dec. 13 at a Von Maur department store. A police report says Payne put a $2,000 necklace in her back pocket and tried to leave the store.

Authorities have said Payne has lifted pricey baubles from countless jewelry stores around the world in an illicit career that has spanned six decades. She was the subject of a 2013 documentary, The Life and Crimes of Doris Payne.

When asked about her exploits in an interview with The Associated Press earlier this year, she said simply: “I was a thief.”

Online jail records did not show any bond information, and it wasn’t immediately clear whether Payne had an attorney who could comment.
