Maui police say bomb threats against two Kahului stores appear to be related and they are investigating the incidents as terroristic threatening cases.

In both cases, a caller threatened to set off a bomb unless the business put money into a reloadable Visa debit card, police said.

The first incident happened at about 10:24 a.m. Friday at the Kmart in Kahului. A male caller told an employee that there was a bomb in the store that would go off unless money was added to the debit card.

The other incident happened at 10:55 at the Walgreens store in Kahului, when a male caller made a similar demand.

No money was sent and both businesses evacuated customers and employees from the stores.

A search of both stores did not find any suspicious items, police said.
