Advertiser Staff

Former Maui County police officer Allison Moore pleaded not guilty Tuesday to 25 charges, including deceiving the department, tampering with evidence, drug possession and forging doctors notes, the Maui News reported.

Moore, 28, who resigned from the department Sept. 16, is free on $150,000 bail.

She worked in the Lāna'i and Lahaina patrol districts and was a vice officer for about a year before her resignation. She began working for the department in 2004. The alleged crimes occurred in 2006, 2008 and 2009, court records show.

Among the 25 charges listed in an indictment, Moore is charged with attempted first-degree theft for trying to obtain or exert control over monetary benefits by deception from a police department leave-sharing program. The amount involved exceeded $20,000.

She is also charged with possessing crystal methamphetamine, tampering with physical evidence and forging doctors notes.
