A 28-year-old woman was arrested after authorities said she posed as a high school student and sneaked into a Miami-Dade County school to promote her Instagram page.
The woman, Audrey Nicole Francisquini, was charged Monday with burglary, educational institution interference, and resisting an officer after she entered American Senior High School in Hialeah, about 11 miles northwest of Miami.
Francisquini was able to sneak her way into the school's front doors "by blending in with students," according to her arrest report. Miami-Dade police said she disguised herself by carrying a bookbag and dressing "similar to students, holding a skateboard, and carrying a painting," police said.
Once inside, she handed out pamphlets with her Instagram name on them and asked students to follow her, the arrest report states.
Security stopped Francisquini after seeing her walking through the halls while classes were in session, but she said she was looking for the registration office. Instead of going to the office, she kept roaming the halls.
