Two marines arrested for trespassing in Kin

Police arrested two marines Saturday after they tried to enter a private apartment in Kin Town through a balcony.

According to Okinawa Prefectural Police, a 46-old resident of an apartment discovered Sgt. Richard Hart and LCpl. Justin Kainoa Kealanahele on the balcony of his apartment trying to open the balcony door, about 10:45 p.m. on Friday. They fled after the resident confronted them. The resident then called the police who found the two nearby and arrested them.

When questioned, the two claimed that they tried to enter the apartment in order to help their local drinking buddy who had been with them to get into his apartment that he had locked himself out of, but they had mistakenly climbed on a wrong balcony.
