Kyodo) _ Police sent papers on two U.S. Navy servicemen to prosecutors Monday on suspicion of their involvement in a taxi holdup within Camp Zukeran, Okinawa Prefecture, in January.

The police said Henry Morgan, 20, and Reginald Lowery Jr., 21, are suspected of aking 5,000 yen and $5 from a 61-year-old taxi driver they called in the early morning of Jan. 7 by threatening him with a knife. An alleged accomplice has already returned to the United States.

The two have admitted to the charges, the police said.

The police decided not to request arrest warrants for the two men, as the U.S. Navy said it will hand them over to the Japanese side if prosecutors indict them.

American investigators arrested the two Jan. 27 and the Okinawa police had been questioning them with cooperation from the U.S. side.
