Date Posted: 2008-10-31

It took nearly two months, but military investigators got their men.
Military police were able to identify and apprehend two young Marines who ripped off a taxi driver on Kadena Air Base about midnight August 30th.

The 22-year-old corporal and 20-year-old lance corporal are assigned at Camp Schwab, police said. They both have confessed to taking a taxi from Nago City to Kadena Air Base, telling the driver to take them onto the base, after which they jumped from the taxi and fled, leaving a •9,680 ($101) bill.

The taxi driver chased the GIís, but couldnít catch them. He reported the incident to the military police station and the manhunt was under way. Okinawa City Police have the case now, and are preparing to send the case to the Naha District Prosecutorís Office.
