COLUMBUS -- A 51-year-old Columbus woman is wanted for serial shoplifting .
Phillimina Huff pleaded guilty to three counts of theft for shoplifting on January 16.
She was given a suspended jail sentence and five years probation.
She was banned from going into the stores she stole from.
Prosecutors tell ABC6 news six days later she was shoplifting again.
They have her on camera inside the Wal-Mart on South High Street, and she's been seen taking items in a number of other stores.
Columbus Assistant City Attorney Bill Hedrick tells ABC6 News she doesn't steal a lot.
She's been caught about 30 times according to Hedrick in stores like Sears, Macy's and Kroger.
He says most of the loss prevention officers know who she is now.
If Huff is convicted she can serve a sentence of up to a year and a half.
