HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A Makiki man accused of stealing about $300,000 from a Honolulu law firm entered a not guilty plea Thursday morning via video link from OCCC. 31-year-old Nigel Salmingo was indicted earlier this month on 37 counts including theft, forgery and money laundering.

Salmingo was the office manager at the firm of Winer Meheula and Devens. He's accused of forging company checks to pay personal debts, using the law firm's credit cards, and stealing from the petty cash fund to buy a BMW, computers, Ipods and electronics. Prosecutors say the thefts happened over the course of 18 months.

His employers discovered irregularities in the firm's checking and charge accounts while Salmingo was on vacation. Court papers said the facts suggest that he fled the state soon after his alleged crimes were discovered.

The US Postal service tracked Salmingo to New Jersey and then New York. He was arrested May 6 in Manhattan.
