Police seek custody of GIís on 2006 robbery charges

Date Posted: 2008-05-02

A taxi robbery in Okinawa City nearly two years ago has finally drawn a request to the military for assistance.

Okinawa City Police are asking the US military to investigate the July 2006 taxi robbery in the cityís Chuo District, where two foreigners attempted to strangle the taxi driver before stealing •20,000~30,000. The robbers also took $300 from the cabbie. Okinawa City Police say the case was well documented at the time of the crime, telling military officials the two suspects actually had confessed.

Now, police want to refer the matter to prosecutors. They say the evidence is still in place, including files with the public prosecutorís office, but they need military help since the suspects are American service personnel.
