Hawaii County police charged a 29-year-old Hilo man in connection with a bomb threat today at a bank at a Hilo supermarket.

Russell Monlux was charged with two counts of second-degree terroristic threatening. Police said the reason for the two counts was that he threatened the bank and the supermarket in which it was located. His bail was set at $4,000.

His initial court appearance is scheduled for Monday.

Police said a customer passed a handwritten bomb threat note shortly before noon to a teller at a bank located in a supermarket on the 300 block of Makaala Street.

The store was evacuated as a precaution, police said.
