Makes You Go Hmmmm: "Plots to rob, kill foiled: Officials investigate how rocket launcher got to Guam"

I used to deliver the Guam Daily News when I was a kid, so every now and then I check in to see how the "Plots to rob, kill foiled: Officials investigate how rocket launcher got to Guam":
now named Pacific Daily News is doing. Surprisingly frequently the headlines are interesting like
While authorities investigate how a rocket launcher made its way from a U.S. Air Force base in Korea to Guam, police yesterday said the arrest of three men foiled a potential robbery and homicide over the weekend.

On Friday, officers recovered a "Trainer Handling Guided Missile Launcher" and arrested Ivan Cabrera, Donald Castro Aldan and John San Nicolas.

The rocket launcher, which police estimated had a range of at least 500 feet, was recovered while police and investigators from the U.S. Air Force were serving a warrant on a home in Dededo.
You know, for an island 35 miles long and about 9 miles wide, Guam is . . . where America's day begins.

A stolen rocket launcher from an air base in Korea? That seems like a little on the overkill side for local robberies.

  1. Was it just the tube or did they have a warhead also? In the article, I did not see any mention of the warhead. Just scanned it though.
