Marilyn Jean Hartman, a woman who's racked up a slew of convictions for stowing away on airplanes, was arrested again on Monday after sneaking onto a flight to Florida and making her way into a room at a posh resort hotel.

USA Today reported that Hartman, 63, has been charged with felony fraud and misdemeanor trespassing after allegedly catching a flight from Minneapolis to Jacksonville, then checking into the $300-a-night Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort under another guest's name.

Once the true guest arrived a few hours later, the hotel attendant called Hartman's room, asking her to come to the front desk. Hartman vanished, only to be found and arrested a few hours later in another vacant room that was under renovation.

Hartman has been detained and/or arrested at least a dozen times for her antics, and has even served a few stints in jail.

The Transportation Security Agency has said on multiple occasions that they would investigate how Hartman continues to get past airport security as well as gate agents without tickets or boarding passes, and Hartman herself has stayed mum on her secrets for fear they could be exploited by terrorists.

Hartman has been homeless for years, and has walked away from at least one government-sponsored housing program she was put in after a judge declared her beset by mental illness. In the past, she's said that her "homelessness is part of the problem" and has caused her to take "desperate measures."

NBC reported that she claims to have an unrecognized illness called "whistleblower trauma syndrome." As a whistleblower, she said, the FBI forced her to flee her house, and she's been homeless ever since.
