Police just outside Atlanta say a notorious 86-year-old jewel thief has struck again.

Doris Payne was arrested Tuesday at a Von Maur department store after she put a $1,995 diamond necklace in her back pocket and tried to leave the store, Dunwoody police spokesman Mark Stevens said in an email. She faces a shoplifting charge.

Online jail records did not show any bond information, and it wasn’t clear whether Payne had an attorney who could comment.
