Doris Payne is in the news again. Now 86 years old, she is probably the world’s oldest still working jewel thief. She was just arrested (12/2016) again for heisting jewelry in Atlanta. This YouTube video was made after her last job in 2015. Doris, an international jewel thief, has a rap sheet that began in the 1950s. She has done several terms in federal prison but the lure of those shiny treasures seems to always bring her back to a life of crime.
A film, the Life and Crimes of Doris Payne was made about her in 2014. For the trailer on YouTube, click here.
