Posted on 08/29/2008 7:12:25 PM PDT by STARWISE
Orange County Sheriff's deputies arrived at the Anthony home shortly before 8:30 p.m. More than half dozen vehicles - some marked and some unmarked - pulled up to the house. The lead detective - Yuri Melich - got out and went inside the home.
Moments later, the door cracked open, showing Casey Anthony inside standing near Sgt. John Allen, who is supervising the investigation. The crowd who was gathered outside cheered. Someone yelled, "she's in handcuffs."
At 8:33 p.m., deputies escorted her out with her hands cuffed behind her back. She showed little emotion as detectives put her in the front of an unmarked patrol car.
She was wearing a t-shirt with Caylee's picture on the front and read "Have you seen me?"
Some in the crowd yelled "murderer" and "baby killer."
Headline News (Grace's substitute) saying she was arrested on the charges of the stolen checks and credit card of her alleged friend, who finally filed charges, and NOT on the Caylee issue

Investigation is ongoing, but it sounds as if she could be bailed out relatively easily, sadly. New charges seem minor: petty theft, and two others.
Prayers for that sweet innocent child, and justice is served.
That poor little baby with such beautiful big eyes...this is very sad and horrific. I have no sympathy for Casey, she must be a sociopath as she seems to only care about herself and I have to wonder about her parents too.
Casey Anthony arrested again in Orlando
— Orange County Sheriff Deputies arrested Casey Anthony Friday night and charged her with multiple white-collar crimes.
According to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office spokesman, Captain Angelo Nieves, Anthony was charged with forgery, theft, and using fraudulent information.
Anthony was released last week when bounty hunter Leonard Padilla posted her bail. Padilla says Anthony may return because he is concerned for her safety. Reports on Wednesday that samples taken from Casey Anthony’s car indicate that, at some point, there was a decomposing body in the trunk.
Cops have video surveillance of Casey actually using the stolen checks (about $700, which wiped out her friend’s checking account) at a Target store and another business.
Damn, I must have been asleep for a while or something. Didn’t realize she’d been convicted of murder, or even charged. OK so she is most likely a murdering sociopath, I’d just like to see some charges and maybe, I don’t know, a conviction.
Casey also received a birthday check from her grandmother, and she took the routing # off the check and used it to drain some $$ out that as well ... her own grandmother. What a bum ... it’s really sounding like drugs.
It’s 3 minor charges ... nothing to do with Caylee except the fraudulent information given to the police ( I’m fairly sure that’s how they described that charge ).
Wait, take your time, build an airtight case, arrest them, let them spend three nights in jail on no bond, they will cut a deal.
I am not here to defend Casey and she seems to have some relationship to the disappearance of her child;but, this is just a unjustified effort to screw with her. There is a $500,000 bond posted and these added charges may be bogus. $500,000 is plenty of security and the cops should have called her attorney so she could turn herself in. Where was she going to go and hide? Nowhere, that’s where.

NEW CHARGES DETAILED
ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — Orange County sheriff’s deputies arrived at the Anthony family home Friday evening and arrested Casey Anthony on charges of forgery, theft and using fraudulent information.
Investigators showed up at the family’s home about 8:30 p.m. They led Casey out in handcuffs to the cheers of waiting protestors.
The charges stem from allegations Casey took money, possibly from family or friends. Investigators say they have images of Casey using checks at stores around Orlando.
“She had used names and checks in an account that didn’t belong to her,” said Capt. Angelo Nieves of the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.
Anthony was being held on a $3,000 bond Friday night. The family would have to post $300 to get her out of jail if a judge agrees to that bond amount. Routinely, inmates would appear before a judge around 11:30 a.m., Saturday morning.
Anthony’s attorney, Jose Baez, released a statement that said, “This is nothing more than an attempt by law enforcement to play mind games with my client. They leaked the arrest to the media and deliberately avoided telling me so she could turn herself in, in a dignified fashion. They clearly wanted the media to capture my client in the worse possible light. Coincidentally, I was on the phone with her when police arrived at her home to arrest her What’s clear is that law enforcement is more interested in making my client look bad than finding Caylee who’s still missing and likely in danger.” Anthony was being held on a $3,000 bond Friday night. The family would have to post $300 to get her out of jail if a judge agrees to that bond amount. Routinely, inmates would appear before a judge around 11:30 a.m., Saturday morning.
The evening’s events unfolded after a tense and volatile day at the family’s home. Protesters showed up early Friday evening, demanding Casey go back to jail. However, the protests referred to charges Casey Anthony already faces related to the disappearance of her young daughter, Caylee.
Friday was the 45th day since Caylee Anthony was reported missing and early in the morning, it appeared the bounty hunter who had helped bond Casey out of jail on the original charges was ready to revoke that bond and send her back behind bars. But he and Casey’s attorney worked out a deal just before noon Friday and Casey did not go back to jail then. Also Friday, subpoenas were issued to the Anthony family telling them they may have to testify in a trial scheduled to start on November 17.
A group is planning to search Saturday for Caylee’s body near Orlando International Airport and more protesters are expected to come to Casey’s house Friday night.
George Anthony hit the roof Friday afternoon when two protesters set up camp right in front of his home, throwing chairs and yelling. George’s pastor had to hold him back as he unloaded on two men who set up chairs and an umbrella in his card. They came to the house hoping to see Casey hauled back to jail.
“We’re just here to watch her be arrested,”
As evidence mounts that Caylee is dead, the Anthony family seems to have no end of conspiracy theories. They blame everyone but Casey.
“Maybe someone put a body in the car after it was towed to the tow yard. Why don’t you talk to them about their security?” Cindy Anthony said Thursday evening.
The building drama is even making drama-king Leonard Padilla nervous for the media.
“I don’t want you guys sitting there talking to Cindy when she’s got a hammer in her hand,” Padilla said Friday morning.
Padilla also fears for Casey as she travels back an forth from her attorney’s office.
“I think somebody can take a shot at her,” Padilla said.
There’s also word from the Internet that more protesters are coming to the Anthony house Friday night. Internet chatter is rampant that Casey will have a large crowd that will insist she be taken back to jail.
Well geuss she won’t be partying with her peeps with her dopey hand gestures.
If she’s not gonna help find her missing kid, it’s better for the investigation to have her locked up.
There is one easy way to avoid all this sideshow, and it’s for her to help.
Absent that, I hope they do this to her every day...one itty bitty charge at a time.
Casey is a sociopath and the parents make me crazy..I have no hope Caylee is alive..I just want her found and justice done.
I was so disappointed this arrest was for these charges..I had hoped it was connected to Caylee..Casey will be out on bond again in no time at all.
The added charges are not bogus..They have her on videotape forging her friend’s checks.
My theory is that she left the child in the car in the heat and the little girl died of heatstroke. She probably panicked and buried her.
The coverup will get her a murder charge.
No big deal. She just can’t remember where she left her daughter. Time for her to move.on
You are right. This will severely cut into her party-time.
I believe that her wierdo mother (Kaylee's GM) has a lot of at least knowledge of, if not some actual involvement with the disappearance/death of Kaylee.
Yeah, unfortunately for the little one. It just sucks.
She’s probably safer in jail.
I think the term for her is psychopath. Sociopaths are not quite as defective.
Always pull a CarFax® report before buying a used car!
You know the little girl was is beautiful but maby if she did hurt her it was an accident those dogs were smelling the back tire tail light area maby she accidentally ran her over.
...”the parents make me crazy”....
me too. I keep going back and wondering about the mother (casey’s mom) and how she described the vehicle....smells like dead body? coincidence? and how does one know what a dead body smells like?
It’s about time.
Once you smell it - you'll know and you'll never forget...
Try to imagine the stench from 80 or 90 corpses, 60/200 meters to your front, after a few very hot and humid days.......
As soon as it's safe to do so -- nothing receives higher priority than getting them dragged away or covered with enough dirt/mud to stifle the stench....
Trust me on this. My Dad was a narcissistic sociopath. They have NO feelings except for themselves.
Can anyone else verify this?
If this is true then Caylee was ALIVE when Casey put her in the trunk which makes this premediated. My intuition (which is excellent btw) has long told me that Caylee's death wasn't an accident. Neighbors heard Cindy and Casey arguing shortly before Caylee disappeared. Its possible that Casey murdered Caylee to get back at Cindy.
Casey’s dad George is a former LEO. He could be involved in the coverup as well.
These protests have been organized on an internet forum. Anybody know which one?

Check out Websleuths. They may have info on that. You can join and ask the question if you don’t find it.
Sorrym do not.
Suggest try pinging SE Mom.
Topix may be the forum..I think I read it somewhere..but I could not say for sure.
Good news..way down the page
“Early Saturday morning, the Tampa bonding company that had put up $50,000 to get Casey out of jail on original charges of child endangerment and lying to authorities about the disappearance of her young daughter Caylee, revoked that bond.”
Yeah I saw it. Doesn’t look like she is missing any meals from worry about her daughter, does it?
I have nothing but anger at that so-called “bounty hunter” and his headline-grabbing stunt of bailing Casey out of jail.
Couple of comments about this case....I think Casey’s parents and her brother are working with the police. Which explains why they changed their story from dead body smell to pizza and all the other ridiculous story changes. Casey Anthony is obviously a troubled individual who doesn’t work, has no morals, and I think she probably did leave little Caylee in her car and she died. Casey survives by lying and she does it well. I am quite sure her parents and brother (who encouraged her to talk when he KNEW the conversation was being recorded) do not believe that babysitter story for a minute.
I think that bounty hunter should be hounded to the gates of hell for being such a pain. Frankly I think the cops WANTED to keep Casey in jail and I for sure think her parents had the wherewithal to bail her out. They didn’t because, as I’ve stated above, I think Casey’s parents are working with the investigators. They want to bury their precious granddaughter properly. It’s obvious they loved her and they were the ones raising her. And since Caylee’s death was likely an accident, as has been speculated on publicly by the police, they don’t want their daughter to be jailed for what was an accident and not murder.
Casey hates being in jail, don’t we all? They are hoping that the jail will keep the pressure on for her to finally tell the truth.
This is just speculation mind you. May that fine bounty hunter go to hell the minute God brings him home.
I believe Casy has some involvement in the disappearance of her child. The point I was trying to make, but not to well, is that cops would also do the same to someone who was innocent.
I hadn’t heard of the scratches in the trunk. How awful if true.
One thing I know for sure is that in these cases the media will point fingers first, spread innuendo for ratings, and it then becomes truth to the public so until the police say one way or the other I just can’t judge. All we can do is pray for that precious little girl.
...”Once you smell it - you’ll know and you’ll never forget..”
I’d imagine so....which begs the question...why was the grandmother familiar with what a dead body smells like? Any possibility that she’s involved?
I share your frustration but I am really keeping up with this case...and Cindy is in complete denial and not helping a thing IMO..I try to limit watching her tirades against the press and law enforcement.
I don’t like having so little compassion for a grandmother who clealy loved Caylee..but she is more concerned about protecting Casey right now it seems to me. It’s like watching a train wreck..
Padilla played the fool..I hope he has learned a lesson.
I knew more about the actual court documents and case information than he did..
Casey is without a conscience.
I put this all on Casey..I think the parents have no control over her and I just wish Cindy would quit compulsively talking, speaking nonsense and get out of the news.
They are in deep denial.
