Former Army captain pleads not guilty to stealing

A former Army captain accused of stealing $400,000 from the U.S. government while stationed in Afghanistan has pleaded not guilty.
David Silivano Gilliam entered his plea Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Honolulu. He was indicted Feb. 11 on six counts, including theft, cash smuggling, money laundering and making false statements to federal investigators.
Prosecutors say the alleged theft occurred between April 2004 and April 2005 while Gilliam was working as a disbursing officer at Kandahar Air Base.
He allegedly smuggled the funds from Afghanistan to Hawaii, where he spent some of the money before relocating to South Carolina. Trial was set for May 12.
