According to an arrest report, Francisquini was able to blend in with students by wearing a backpack, carrying a skateboard and dressing similar to them.

Once she was inside the school, Francisquini approached numerous students and gave them printed pamphlets with her Instagram name on it and asked them to follow her, the report said.

Francisquini was also using her phone to record herself wandering the halls, the report said.

Security guards found her wandering the school halls and confronted her, and she told them she was looking for the registration office, the report said.

But instead of going to the registration office, she continued to walk through the hallways and stop students, the report said.

When security confronted her a second time, she refused to stop and left the building before fleeing the school property, the report said.

Police said they were able to use her Instagram account to find her, and Francisquini was arrested at her home in North Miami Beach.

Francisquini was booked into Miami-Dade jail, where she remained held on $2,000 bond Tuesday. Attorney information wasn't available.

"A thorough review of this matter is underway. As always, Miami-Dade County Public Schools will continue to work tirelessly to protect the safety and wellbeing of our students and employees," A Miami-Dade County Public Schools spokesperson said in a statement.
