Ex-town clerk praised for tornado work is accused of theft

A former village clerk who was praised for her work in helping rebuild her northeast Nebraska community following a 2014 tornado strike has been accused of theft.

Kimberly Neiman , was arrested Wednesday at her Pilger home.

Court records don’t list the name of an attorney who could comment for her.

Suspicions about Neiman arose when a state audit uncovered more than $562,000 in questionable transactions and more than $156,000 in suspicious charges on the village’s credit card.

The tornado on June 16, 2014, destroyed or damaged more than half of the Stanton County town and killed a 5-year-old girl.
