ATLANTA -- (WGCL) -- An elderly woman who is widely known as an international jewel thief was arrested in an Atlanta store.
Police said in a Facebook post on Tuesday that Doris Marie Payne, 85, was arrested for shoplifting inside the Christian Dior store at Phipps Plaza last week. They said she placed a pair of earrings in her pocket and left the store without paying. Payne's attorney denies the allegations.
