In October 2022, authorities say Maine broke into several vehicles and stole identification cards, checkbooks, and financial cards in Lake Hallie, Wisconsin.

Maine was known by authorities to be driving a red and silver 2020 Chevy Equinox vehicle with stolen license plates from multiple states while wearing different colored wigs and eye contacts.

At the time of her arrest, Maine was in possession of stolen IDs from multiple states and had reportedly been traveling across the country committing fraud and theft crimes for several years.

Law enforcement is asking anyone with information relating to fraud or theft incidents concerning Kimberly Maine to report it.

The release says that all financial loss from victims will be combined into the federal case and used at the sentencing hearing.
