So....what does your Grand Ma do!!!
An 86-year-old international jewelry thief was arrested Tuesday for allegedly shoplifting at a mall outside Atlanta.
The notorious Doris Payne, 86, has a criminal career that spans some 50 years on at least two continents.
In this most recent incident, Payne was arrested by Dunwoody, Ga., police and charged with shoplifting after she allegedly attempted to steal a $2,000 bracelet from Von Maur at Perimeter Mall.
The elderly woman was booked at the DeKalb County Jail.
Me Ma Payne was last arrested a little more than a year ago after she was apparently caught trying to put a pair of $700 earrings in her pocket at a Saks Fifth Avenue at Phipps Plaza in Atlanta.
Last year her attorney said that Payne was too sick to appear in court in relation to the Saks arrest.
“The reality is, she’s an 85-year-old lady in ailing health,” attorney Shawn McCullers said in November 2015. “If you want to drag her down here and cause her more harm and have her get more sick … we certainly can’t stop you.”
Payne was the subject of a documentary, The Life and Crimes of Doris Payne, which detailed how she had stolen $2 million in jewelry across the globe.
And in MORON news!!!!!
Two Kentucky men were arrested last week after they accidentally called 911, tipping off authorities to their alleged plan to rob a BBQ restaurant where the local police chief happened to be dining.
Robert Bourne and David Grigsby were sitting in their car outside of Brothers’ BBQ in Danville when the emergency function on one of their phones inadvertently connected with a 911 dispatcher.
The dispatcher listened in to the call and heard the two men allegedly discussing places they might rob, including Brothers’ BBQ. Authorities determined where the call originated and contacted Danville police chief Tony Gray, who, as it turned out, was enjoying a meal inside the mentioned restaurant.
“When we stepped out back to talk, the dispatcher was able to pinpoint the phone, and the call was coming from somewhere in the parking lot at Brothers’. At that time, they located the two suspects sitting in the vehicle,” Gray said.
Obviously these two idiots were sauced while they were making their plans. Bourne and Grigbsy were both charged with public intoxication. Grigsby was also charged with disorderly conduct and possession of an open alcohol container in a vehicle.
There were no chestnuts roasting on this open fire, just letters, presents, and packages!
After a mail truck filled with packages for the holiday season caught fire in Wake Forest, North Carolina, Tuesday morning, a postal worker and a passerby launched into action to remove all the parcels from the burning vehicle.
Authorities said the fire started in the engine compartment and spread to the rest of the vehicle. The postal worker’s quick decision to remove the packages from the truck limited the fire’s damage.
“If it wasn’t for her quick thinking to pull right over and remove the parcels, it could have been tough,” Wake Forest Fire Battalion Chief Ed Barrett said.
USPS said it would work with customers who may have received damaged packages to have them reshipped. WPXI reported that many of the packages were from Amazon. The e-retailer said in a statement that it would donate to the local fire station for acting so quickly.
A GoFundMe page was created to thank the mail carrier for her efforts because, why not! Everybody gets a go fund me page!
