ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) The mother of a missing Florida girl was arrested again Friday night this time on check fraud and theft charges just over a week after a bounty hunter bailed her out of jail.
Orange County Sheriff's Office investigators took Casey Anthony into custody at her home Friday night. She was being held on $3,000 bond and was charged with uttering a forged instrument, fraudulent use of personal information and petty theft, Capt. Angelo Nieves said.
According to sheriff's office reports, Anthony used a friend's checkbook to buy items at Target and Winn-Dixie, and to write a check for cash in July.
"She used checks that did not belong to her," Nieves said.
The 22-year-old, who was released from jail on $500,000 bond last week, has already been charged with child neglect, making false statements and obstructing the investigation into her daughter's disappearance.
Police say Anthony is a person of interest in the disappearance of her daughter, 3-year-old Caylee, who hasn't been seen since mid-June. She did not report her daughter missing until July.
