A 63-year-old woman who's been dubbed a "serial stowaway" told authorities who arrested her in Jacksonville, Florida, Monday she arrived in town after boarding a flight from the Twin Cities without a ticket, NBC News reports.
It's the latest of many arrests under similar circumstances for Marilyn Hartman, who is the subject of a Facebook page chronicling her travel adventures.
Hartman was charged Monday with fraud, NBC says, after allegedly checking into a $300-a-night resort villa under someone else's name.
The Florida Times-Union reports a shuttle driver approached Hartman at Jacksonville's airport and asked if she was a different woman, who had a reservation at the Omni Resort.
The newspaper says Hartman seized the opportunity and checked in under the other woman's name, but fled when the rightful guest arrived.
ABC News reported on Hartman's arrest at the Phoenix airport last August. It was her third arrest in a month and came after airport employees recognized her.
The Times Union says Los Angeles airport officials had distributed photos of Hartman – a retired legal secretary originally from Chicago – who has been banned from visiting airports in L.A. and San Mateo, California, unless she can produce an airline ticket.
San Francisco Weekly says Hartman has been arrested half a dozen times at that city's airport.
According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Hartman told reporters after one of her arrests that she is drawn to airports because she is homeless and finds them safer than the streets.
