    An active duty Hawaii soldier has been arrested for alleged ties to the Islamic State terrorist group.

    FBI special agents and SWAT arrested Ikaika Erik Kang, 34, on Saturday evening at his Waipahu apartment.

    FBI spokesman Arnold Laanui said Kang is with the 25th Infantry Division at Schofield Barracks in Wahiawa.

    Officials said the suspect, who graduated from Kaiser High School, was the subject of a year-long investigation.

    He's set to make his first appearance in federal court Monday afternoon.

    Thank goodness he was caught before carrying out an attack.

    I wonder what his specific connections were and why didn't they arrest him sooner?
