Marine busted trying to rob a pharmacy

Date Posted: 2009-04-23

Okinawa Prefecture police have arrested an American marine on charges he tried to rob an Okinawa City pharmacy.

Authorities say Marine Lance Corporal Anthony Massimo entered the drug store about 10:15 p.m. Monday and demanded $20 from the owner. Police say he made the demand in English, while pretending to have a hand gun in his pocket. A store employee witnessed the exchange between Massimino and the 70-year-old pharmacy owner, and called police.

Massimino fled the scene in his car, but was arrested 15 minutes later near by as the pharmacy owner who ran out after him had written down the license plate number of Massimino's car as he sped away.

No gun was found on the 30-year-old Massimino, and he denied the accusation hed been in the pharmacy and made any robbery demand.
