“Terrorism is the FBI’s number one priority. In fighting this threat, the Honolulu Division of the FBI works with its law enforcement partners and the Joint Terrorism Task Force. In this case, the FBI worked closely with the U.S. Army to protect the citizens of Hawaii.

Kang has been under investigation by the U.S. Army and the FBI for over a year. FBI assets and Army investigative resources were continuously deployed to ensure the public’s safety during the course of this investigation and Kang’s eventual arrest.”  

Officials state that Kang has been under investigation by both the U.S. Army and FBI for more than a year.  His Waipahu apartment is now sealed as a part of the investigation while Kang himself will remain in federal custody.  His first appearance in Federal Court is scheduled for Monday afternoon.
