A Keshena woman was indicted Tuesday in federal court for allegedly stealing a car that was later recovered in New York City.

Danielle R. Kaquatosh, 34, is charged with stealing a 2005 Pontiac Grand Am from a residence on the Menominee Indian Reservation on or about Sept. 23.

On Sept. 27, a New York City police officer located Kaquatosh and the vehicle near West 165th Street and Broadway.

Kaquatosh is in federal custody and is being transported to Wisconsin, according Dean Puschnig, a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s office in Milwaukee.

No court dates have been set.

If convicted, Kaquatosh faces maximum penalties of five years in prison, a $250,000 fine and three years supervised release.
