A serial charity tin thief has been locked up after her latest thefts targeting the Cancer Council.
Kelly-Anne Walsh was arrested at her Hakea Place home in West Albury this week after netting hundreds of dollars in donations.
She was already on a corrections order for stealing other charity tins, and has previously been jailed for charity thefts in Wodonga.
In a blow to the Cancer Council, the compensation can't be determined as the exact amount stolen is unknown, but was at least $400.
Walsh could be seen on CCTV footage talking on her phone.
"She looks around and then places her handbag in front of a Cancer Council charity collection box," police told Albury magistrate Rodney Brender.

"She then scoops up her handbag and the collection tin in one motion, places it under her arm (and) leaves the area."
She repeated her behaviour at Beer Deluxe on September 1, which was again filmed.
Walsh went to the front bar, looked around for employees, and scooped up a tin with a Coles bag before leaving.
The tin contained about $400 for the cancer charity.
"Compensation in this matter is unable to be determined as the exact quantity of money is unknown," police said.
Walsh has stolen a large number of tins in the past, including for a sick six-year-old girl, several guide dog charities and a chocolate box fundraiser.
She was on community corrections orders for stealing a charity box at Brady's Railway Hotel.
Walsh went to the pub about 6.30pm on August 9 and took the donations, and last year took $120 worth of donations from Deli International at Lavington Square and $130 from APCO in North Albury.
Albury officers noted she is "extremely well known in Victoria" by Wodonga officers.
She has pleaded guilty to two counts of larceny for the latest offending.
Walsh will remain in custody until at least January 15 when the matter returns to court.
