A fugitive wanted on a federal warrant for theft of government property in Wisconsin, was arrested on Maui last night.

Timothy L. Kosier, 45, was wanted on a warrant issued in the Western District of Wisconsin for allegedly “Stealing Government Property.”

Special agents from the FBI arrested Kosier at 7 p.m. at a vacation rental home in Kihei on Maui.

He was taken into custody without incident and was held overnight by the Maui Police Department.

The criminal complaint alleges that Kosier “intentionally stole, obtained by fraud, and without lawful authority converted to the use of persons other than the rightful owner,  property valued at $5,000 or more owned by the City of Beloit.”

According to court documents, Kosier was employed by the City of Beloit as a Water Resources Maintenance Supervisor.

In 2010, the City of Beloit received approximately $7 million in federal grants and other forms of federal funding, with the Public Works Department receiving approximately $950,000 of those funds, according to court documents.
