Reward offered for leads in Camp Foster taxi robbery

Date Posted: 2006-01-24

The American military is offering a reward for information leading to the arrest of a GI who robbed a taxi driver on Camp Foster two weeks ago.

Navy Criminal Investigative Service has posted a $2,000 reward for information about the case, asking base residents to call them if they know anything about the incident. A taxi driver was threatened at knifepoint and robbed January 7th. Authorities say the on-base incident occurred after a taxi was dispatched to a barracks at 1:20am Saturday.

Arriving at the barracks, the taxi driver was accosted by a lone male, who approached the car and opened the driver’s door and pointed a knife at him and demanded “give me money.” As the driver searched his pockets for money, the robber grabbed the man and reached into his pockets as well. The robber found money, and also the driver’s ID card, which he tossed to the ground. Authorities say the taxi driver gave his money box to the robber, who ran away.

Police say the driver didn’t see the robber’s face, but said he was a young black man, 175cm tall, wearing a jumper with a hooded jacket over his head.

A Marine Corps Public Affairs spokesman says “we are researching and investigating together with Prefecture Police. This is a very serious crime.”
