Date Posted: 2010-08-19

Police arrested a 19-year-old U.S. Marine on suspicion of stealing from a taxi and a 33-year-old U.S. airman for an alleged traffic law violation on Saturday night in Okinawa Prefecture in separate cases, the police said Sunday. Police arrested the lance corporal from Camp Kinser in for allegedly stealing some 3,000 yen from a taxi in Ojana in Ginowan around 10:30 p.m. Saturday.

The Marine was apprehended on the spot by police officers who responded to a report from the driver, but denied the allegation. The taxi driver called police after the Marine, who was sitting in the front passenger seat, reached into the cashbox of the taxi when the car was at a hamburger drive-through in the city, police said, adding there were two other passengers in the car.

Meanwhile, police arrested Technical Sgt Atiba Gresham from the U.S. Air Force’s Kadena Base in Kadena for allegedly refusing to take a breath test for drunken driving in the city of Okinawa around 11:15 p.m. Saturday.

According to police, they stopped his car on the road in the city as he was speeding and asked Gresham to take the test as they smelled alcohol.
