Cpl. Gregory Singleton and Sgt. Darren Murray, both assigned to the III Marine Expeditionary Force on Okinawa, were arrested on Nov. 28 by Tokyo Metropolitan Police and charged with credit-card fraud, Marine Corps spokesman 1st Lt. David Mancilla said in an email Wednesday.

Singleton, 25, and Murray, 22, are suspected of using the fake card on Oct. 29 to buy clothing items valued at $891, said a Tokyo Metropolitan Police spokesman.
