A Mauston man faces identity theft, disorderly conduct, and drug charges after a reported home invasion in Juneau County.
Kevin Maun, 26, is charged with identity theft, financial gain, possession of methamphetamine, three counts of misdemeanor theft, criminal damage to property, possession of drug paraphernalia, and disorderly conduct. He faces up to six years imprisonment for the first charge.
According to the criminal complaint:
On Nov. 12 a Juneau County sheriff’s deputy was dispatched after a reported home invasion in the village of Camp Douglas. The suspect, Maun, was said to be driving in his father’s silver Chevrolet Impala. Dispatch was also informed that Maun has been known to carry a loaded pistol with him.
The deputy located a silver Chevrolet impala near the BP gas station and found that the driver was Maun, who was then made to get on his knees with his fingers interlocked behind his head.
Another deputy then arrived at the scene and stated that Maun was a suspect in a case of he had been working on involving stolen checks and mail thefts. While they were searching Maun, the deputies found checks that did not have his information printed on them. The deputies also found Wisconsin identification papers with his photo, but not his name. The documents “looked as if they had been altered.”
A call was then made to tow the impala so it could be impounded for further evidence purposes.
That same day, deputies found Maun to be in possession of a black and gray energizer HD LED headlight with a head strap that fit the description of a product that was purchased with a stolen check on Nov. 8 at the Blains Farm & Fleet in Onalaska.
When a deputy met with individuals at the residence Maun had been trying to gain entry into, the deputy was informed that Maun was “was pounding on the door and used some type of tool to attempt to break in through the numeric passcode (deadbolt).” Maun had shouted to one of the individuals “watch this” as he proceeded to smash her iPhone. Maun also stole a $200 Calvin Klein purse from her car.
During a search of Maun’s vehicle, deputies found the stolen purse, a Remington RM380 handgun with a round in the chamber, an X-Box, an orange glass pipe, and a plastic baggie containing a substance that tested positive for methamphetamine.
Maun is due in court at the Juneau County Justice Center on Dec. 6.
