Two Marines, assigned to the III Marine Expeditionary Force on Okinawa, are suspected of using a fake credit card to buy clothes at a department store in Tokyo’s Shibuya district.
Lt. Gen. Lawrence Nicholson said the Marine Corps holds servicemembers to the “highest standards of conduct,” and that it would cooperate with investigators “to the fullest extent.”
Bureau officials said the coral will not be impacted by the work. Local officials remain skeptical.
A street popular with tourists in Okinawa’s capital was closed briefly Saturday for the removal of a 110-pound bomb leftover from World War II.
