An 86-year-old serial US jewel thief, whose crimes date back to the 1950s, has again been charged with theft.
Doris Payne was arrested at a Walmart store in Chamblee, in Georgia, with $86.
22 (£66) worth of items, police say.
She has been released on bail.
She was found wearing an ankle monitor from a previous arrest for shoplifting.
Payne has served multiple jail terms for her crimes.
She is thought to have stolen $2m in jewellery and was profiled in a 2013 documentary.
A shop employee observed her stealing several items from the pharmacy, electronics and grocery departments.
Her lawyer, Drew Findling, was quoted by local media as saying: "This is a sharp contrast to all the cases in the past.
We`re not talking about high-end jewellery.
"We`re talking about what an 86-year-old woman needs to survive on a day-to-day basis, food supplies and medical supplies.
" She had recently pleaded guilty of stealing a $2,000 diamond necklace from a department store in a suburb of Atlanta.
She was then sentenced to house arrest and banned from shopping centres in the city`s area.
More of our most read stories Officials say she has used at least 22 aliases since she stole her first diamond when she was a 23-year-old, and probably got away with far more than she was convicted of.
The Jewelers` Security Alliance, an industry trade group, sent bulletins warning stores about her as early as the 1970s.
In a 2005 prison interview with the Associated Press, Payne said it was never about the money: "I`ve had regrets, and I`ve had a good time.
