It also alleges he defrauded two couples of at least than $100,000.

Maui Industrial has filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Kimura has filed for personal bankruptcy.

Maui Industrial's bankruptcy trustee has sued 25 of the company's investors to recover funds, alleging the money they received was the fruit of a Ponzi scheme.

Kimura could not immediately be reached for comment.
