The wife of a man arrested for principle to identity theft is now in custody, police say.
Kimberly Ann Strother, 46, of the 15000 block of Country Road 712, Colcord, Oklahoma, was arrested Wednesday, Oct. 14, and charged with a warrant from Minden police for identity theft. Bond was set at $50,000.
Minden police chief says her husband, Shannon Strother, 47, was arrested Thursday, Oct. 8 in connection with the incident where the couple attempted to purchase a vehicle using Shannon Strother’s ex-wife’s name.
“After we arrested Shannon, Kimberly took off and went to Oklahoma,” he said. “We obtained information as to her whereabouts and forwarded the warrant there. She was picked up on our warrant in Oklahoma, and she waived extradition. Capt. Dan Weaver and Lt. Richard Cooper drove to Oklahoma to pick her up.”
According to reports, Shannon Strother and his current wife went to Carter Federal Credit Union and tried to get a vehicle loan in Strother’s ex-wife’s name using her personal information in March.
Shannon Strother was incarcerated at the time of his arrest on burglary and drug charges in connection with a burglary on Sand Plant Road in Dubberly in April. He is expected to be in court Monday, Oct. 19.
