    Doris Payne: 86-year-old international jewel thief arrested again after allegedly pocketing diamond necklace

    Ms Payne's criminal record goes as far back as 1952, and she has conducted successful heists all around the world.

    She was the subject of the 2013 documentary The Life and Crimes of Doris Payne, which chronicled her decades-long career of alleged thefts. Her criminal record dates back to 1952, with successful heists from San Diego to Monte Carlo, Las Vegas to Paris.


    "I don’t dictate what happens when I walk in the store. The people in charge dictate what happens with me when I walk in the store,” she said. “I don’t tell a person in the store I want to see something that costs $10,000.
    “They make those decisions based on how I present myself and how I look."

    The article says it started when she was young and realised she had walked out of the store with a watch she had been trying on.

    What do you guys think of this woman's long criminal history? Have you ever accidentally stolen something? let me know!
