Maui police are looking for a man who caused a bomb scare during an attempted bank robbery in Kahului.
The man entered the First Hawaiian Bank at 20 Kaahumanu Ave. at about 11:30 a.m. yesterday and handed an employee a note demanding that money be put into a bag, police said.
The robber didn’t get any money, but he left a suspicious device on the counter and said something about blowing up the bank, police said.
Authorities closed the bank and a bomb squad diffused the threat.
The FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are assisting in the investigation, Maui police said.
Police described the man as 6 feet tall with a slim build, wearing a camouflage jacket and camouflage pants.
