Senior citizen at work

Doris Payne, right,and the actress who is portraying herEighty-year-old international jewel thief Doris Payne caught casing jewelry store while out on bond. She’s had a long career and once she’s out again, she’ll no doubt continue. Query: does one collect Social Security while incarcerated, or is this proud woman just determined to save taxpayers money?

Movie of her career, stealing from high-end jewelry stores in New York, Paris, Tokyo, is apparently underway. Halle Berry (left, obviously) plays Doris. Should be fun.
