MINNEAPOLIS -- A woman known as the "Serial Stowaway" was arrested Monday after allegedly claiming that she had boarded a plane in Minnesota without a ticket and flew to Jacksonville, Fla., according to CBS Minnesota.

Marilyn Hartman, 63, has been involved in dozens of stowaway arrests across the country, reports the station.

According to a report from the Nassau County Sheriff's Office, Hartman took a shuttle from the Jacksonville airport to the Omni Amelia Island Plantation. She then allegedly checked into the hotel under another guest's name -- disappearing when the real person checked in. Security found her hiding out the next day in a room under renovation.

TSA officials are currently investigating, officials told CBS Minnesota.

Hartman had reportedly tried to board flights at San Francisco International Airport six times last year, before getting arrested for trespassing at Los Angeles International Airport in August.
