Doris Payne, 86, has made quite a name for herself as a professional thief. She’s been at it since the 1950’s and continues to steal in her twilight years. Most recently, she was arrested for stealing several items from a Georgia Walmart. As of Friday, she has been released from jail. DeKalb Superior Court Judge Linda Hunter revoked her probation and sentenced Payne to time served.
According to ABC News:
Payne had been charged with a misdemeanor for violating the terms of her three-year probation and ban from any mall in DeKalb County for admittedly stealing a $2,000 necklace, when she was arrested on July 18 at a Walmart in Chamblee, Georgia. She allegedly had stolen $86.22 worth of items from the store’s pharmacy, grocery and electronics departments, ABC affiliate WSB-TV and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.
Payne is still due in court in October for the alleged Walmart incident. “She has a misdemeanor shoplifting charge from Chamblee, Georgia, that is currently pending and we will be aggressively defending her on that case,” said Payne’s attorney Marissa Goldberg.
