Talk about lining your purse...Reports Thursday said that for six years a woman used a purse with a false bottom to steal tiny amounts of gold from the New York jewelry manufacturer where she was a vault manager.

By the time she was caught, reported the Daily News and New York Post, she'd amassed 500 pounds (227 kilos), equivalent to almost 31 gold bars.

She needed a suitcase and a couple dozen buckets to return the loot to her employers, the newspapers reported.

The woman, aged 50, faces 25 years in prison if convicted, the Post said.
