Police found ‘hoax’ explosive device from Kalihi’s house
The Honolulu Police Department said Honolulu police today responded to a report of a possible explosive device at a home in Kalihi, which was later deemed a “spoofing device”.
The officers initially responded to a domestic violence call involving a 32-year-old woman and a 39-year-old man in the 1100 block of Hala Drive at around 6 am.
At a press conference held at the Police Department’s main headquarters today, Captain Parker Bode said the man fled the spot before the officers arrived.
During a police investigation, officers discovered what appeared to be a possible explosive device in the home.
Police evacuated about 10 residents from the vicinity and set up a perimeter.
Bomb technicians from the Police Department’s Special Services Division arrived and determined the device was not explosive. Bode declined to provide further details about the Hoax device.
The police recovered equipment and a firearm from the spot. People returned to their homes after the authorities cleared everything at around 10 am.
No one was reported to be injured.
The police have started a case of misbehavior with any member of the family or household.
Bode said the suspect, who was earlier convicted in the terror intimidation case, is still absconding.
Police did not release the suspect’s name or details.
Anyone with knowledge of the matter is asked to call Crimestoppers at 808-955-8300.
