A former pharmacy worker accused of stealing more than half-a-million dollars in medical supplies pleaded not guilty.
Stacie-Lynn Pihana, 47, is accused of ordering more than 2,000 cases of diabetic test trips while working at Waianae Coast Comprehensive Health Center.
She then allegedly resold the strips to a source, who sold them on the black market.
The health center lost more than $695,000.
“She’s scared to death. You get indicted, you get scared,” said Pihana’s attorney, Michael Green. “She doesn’t have a criminal history. It’s not like she’s been in and out of jail most of her life. It’s a first offense for her, from what I could understand.”
Pihana was charged with first-degree theft.
Her trial is set for the week of March 19.
She remains free after posting $250,000 bail.
