Two Maui businesses were evacuated Friday after receiving bomb threats.
The first threat was at the Kmart in Kahului at about 10:30 a.m.
According to Maui police, a Kmart employee received a phone call from an anonymous man who said there was a bomb in the store and that it would go off if the store did not give him money on a prepaid credit card.
At about the same time, Walgreens in Kahului received a similar call.
Both stores were evacuated as a precaution while police searched for a bomb.
They did not find anything suspicious.
Police believe the threats are related. They are searching for a suspect.
About 40 students got sick and 25 of them, along with two adults, were taken to the hospital. Officials are now taking a look at what they ate for lunch.
It may be the season of giving, but unlike years past, the giving spirit is in short supply this year. The Salvation Army says donations at its Red Kettles are down by nearly one-third and it's not alone.
An 18-year-old man was arrested in connection with the death of an elderly man in Chinatown.
