Pinay pharmacy worker pleads not guilty to medical supply theft charges

HONOLULU — A Filipina pharmacy worker pleaded not guilty on Tuesday, after being charged with nearly $700,000 worth of medical supplies at the health center where she was formerly employed.


Authorities accuse 47-year-old Stacie Lynn Pihana of ordering more than 2,000 cases of diabetic test strips, while working at the Why-Anai coast comprehensive health center from July 2016 to September 2017.

Pihana allegedly resold the strips to a source that sold them on the black market.

After avoiding authorities for two weeks, Pihana turned herself in last week and posted the $250,000 bail shortly after. Her trial is set for the week of March 19.
