A 87-year-old woman who has been infamously dubbed ‘international jewel thief’ escapes jail moments after pleading guilty for her latest heist.

Diamond Payne has allegedly stolen jewelries worth Ghc 8,5 million in the past 60 years. She has been arrested and jailed several, but instead of changing her ways, her appetite for stolen goods has only grown.

“Payne was latest arrested in July for stealing goods worth about Ghc 426 from Walmart in Chamblee, Atlanta. But this is a far cry from the expensive diamond rings she had lifted in the past,” reports The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Her latest crime came even as she neared end of a 120 day house arrest for a previous theft in which she was accused of stealing a necklace, among other valuable items.

Interestingly, Payne was let go by Chamblee Municipal Court Judge Angela Duncan and therefore escaped jail despite pleading guilty of her crime.

“Please don’t show your face here again, Ms Payne,” the judge warned the serious jewel thief as she delivered her ruling. “I won't,” she replied.
