Deputies were called back out to the Marathon station on Tuesday when the woman returned to the store. Deputies found the woman, identified as 38-year-old Kellie Susan Dorfman, in the parking lot with an open beer.

Dorfman was arrested and charged with three felony counts of passing a counterfeit bill and one count of violation of probation. She is currently being held at the Lake County Jail on a $6,000 bond for the counterfeiting charges and no bond for the violation of probation charge. She is scheduled to appear before a judge for arraignment on August 22 on all charges.

As of now, there is no connection between this case and the counterfeiting case from earlier this month in The Villages.
