An 86-year-old Chicagoan who's been arrested more than 60 times pleaded guilty to the latest charge against her after being accused of stealing wrinkle cream and other items from a grocery store.

Ella Orko was arrested Aug. 2 after authorities say she stuffed $252 worth of items into her pants, including cosmetics, salmon, batteries and instant coffee.

Orko had been charged with felony shoplifting, but that was reduced to a misdemeanor in exchange for her guilty plea Monday.

Judge Marvin Luckman sentenced her to two days in jail, which is what she's already served.
