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.You know, for an island 35 miles long and about 9 miles wide, Guam is . . . where America's day begins.
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.
A stolen rocket launcher from an air base in Korea? That seems like a little on the overkill side for local robberies.
