Honolulu Prosecutor Keith Kaneshiro announced Friday that his office is charging the former CEO of Certified Hawaii, now called Associa Hawaii, with 14 counts of felony theft in the first degree and theft in the second degree.

A felony information document filed Thursday charges Toni Ann Floerke with stealing almost $127,000 from three condo associations on Oahu between 2003 and 2012.

The prosecutor alleges that Floerke, who is innocent until proven guilty, created and used false documents and deception to steal money that belonged to Kekuilani Villas Association of Apartment Owners, Kulana Knolls AOAO, Aeloa Terrance AOAO and the owners of those units.

The charges come more than two years after Floerke was fired from Certified over the thefts, which Ian Lind reported in March 2012.

Deputy Prosecutor Christopher Van Marter, who heads the White Collar Crime Unit, is handling the case.
