Authorities are investigating two bomb scare incidents Monday involving suspicious packages, including one at Daniel K. Inouye International Airport that led to the closing of part of several baggage claim areas and a couple of gates. The other incident was at the Borchers Gate at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam.
A male suspect was taken into custody at about 6 p.m. in connection with the Pearl Harbor case and turned over to Honolulu police, officials said.
It’s unknown whether the two incidents are related.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation has taken the lead on the airport incident, officials said.
Reportedly, a bag with wires attached ended up shutting down baggage claim areas 22-27 on the first floor of Terminal 2, as well as gates F-1 and F-2 on the second floor. They are on the Diamond Head end of Terminal 2, which formerly was the Overseas Terminal.
