HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A man has been arrested in connection with a bomb threat against the Hawaii Convention Center that forced the facility into a lockdown on Tuesday, Honolulu police say.
Officers arrested 65-year-old Levi Pene on Wednesday on suspicion of first-degree terroristic threatening.
Police said a threat to bomb the building was made over the phone, triggering a lockdown from Tuesday into Wednesday. However, no bomb was found and no injuries were reported.
A spokesperson for the convention center says that a sweep of the building occurred.
There are no major events scheduled for the convention center until Friday, when a volleyball tournament is expected to bring more than 2,000 attendees into the facility.
