Well, Doris was at it again this week when she was caught shoplifting at WALMART. An employee saw Payne attempt to steal $86 worth of goods from the pharmacy, grocery, and electronics sections. When the cops took her to jail, they realized she was wearing an electronic ankle monitor...because she's on probation from when she stole a necklace back in September.
