Prosecutors indict two Marines for 2006 taxi robbery

Date Posted: 2008-05-18

Nearly two years after a 64-year-old taxi driver was robbed in Okinawa City, the Naha District Public Prosecutorís Office has indicted two U.S. Marines for the crime.
Two Marines assigned to Camp Schwab have been surrendered by the military to Japanese authorities in connection with the indictment for the July 4th robbery. Privates Edward L. Miller Jr., and Brandon K. Pearman are accused of ordering the taxi driver to pull off the road, where they allegedly knocked him down before running away with roughly •80,000 ($800). Miller, now 22, and Pearman, now 21, have both reportedly admitted to Okinawa Prefectural Police committing the crime.
Officials say a $2,000 reward was issued in September 2006 by the Navy Criminal Investigative Service. Police have not explained how they identified Miller and Pearman as suspects. No trial date has been set.
