(Newser) – Casey Anthony, the mother of missing 3-year-old Caylee, was officially charged yesterday with grand theft, ID fraud and check forgery involving a friend, Florida Today reports. After being busted on child neglect—and the theft charges unconnected to her daughter’s disappearance—Anthony could now face a third arrest on new check fraud charges.

Anthony, who posted $500,000 bond earlier this week, is currently confined to her parents’ home, where protesters who believe she's responsible for her daughter's disappearance have become a fixture. "I see how the family is breaking down because of the protesters. If they're broken down enough, I feel like they'll give up and tell the truth," said one protester. Caylee has been missing since mid-July, a month before her mother reported her disappearance to police.
