Payne was released on bail.
Payne allegedly kept trying to hide more items in the shopping bag as she was at the register.
The famed thief, Doris Payne, made a decision to take her talents to a local Wal-Mart in Atlanta.
More recently, Payne was accused of stealing a $2,000 diamond necklace from a store at Perimeter Mall in Atlanta.
Payne is not new to this, she's true to this!
"We called and talked to (officials in North Carolina) and they decided they wouldn't extradite her, which is often the case for a bunch of reasons", McCullers said in an earlier interview with the Atlanta Constitution-Journal.
In the documentary, Payne says, "There's never been a day that I went to steal that I did not get what I went to do". In an interesting turn of events, Officer Arthur noted in his report that Payne was wearing an electronic ankle monitor which he confirmed to have been placed on her by the DeKalb County Probation Office.
Payne told the AP she realized a simple distraction could make it easy to slip out with a fancy trinket in hand after a friendly store owner let her try on watches as a child and then forgot she had the jewelry on.
Police say that Doris has had over 22 aliases and has probably gotten away with more theft than anyone could really know.
Payne's attorney, Drew Findling, has also claimed that his client is innocent and said that she could not steal a bunch of necessities from the big-box store, which "is a far cry from what historically people associate with Doris Payne".
Her scheme at jewelry stores was to pose as a wealthy woman that was charming and friendly. A film starring Halle Berry as Payne has been in development since 2009, and the documentary "The Life and Crimes of Doris Payne" was released on 2013.
'I don't have any regrets about stealing jewelry.
Her story has caught the attention of documentary filmmakers.
