The 3 incidents are among 4 crimes which occurred between 8:30 pm Monday evening and 5:30 am Tuesday morning. [see details of the 4 incidents below].
The 2 seamen were initially arrested Tuesday evening for the attempted stickup of a casino patron on the Carnival grounds which happened about 5 am Tuesday morning. Yesterday [Wednesday], 21 year old Justine Miska and 22 year old Michael A.R. Mayers were both charged in Superior Court with attempted second degree robbery and conspiracy to commit second degree robbery.
They are being held on $25-thousand dollar cash bail each.
Now, acting Guam Police Spokesman Sgt. Mike Aguon says the pair have been arrested again for the armed robbery of the Hana Shiatsu Massage and the attempted armed robbery of the Best Massage, both in Tamuning.

Sgt. Aguon says this second arrest of the same two men is the result of an ongoing investigation by GPD, NCIS and NCID agents.
In addition, investigators have accused the pair of responsibility for a burglary that occurred on Naval Base Guam.
The 2 sailors have NOT been linked to the first armed robbery of that night which occurred about 8:30 pm at the Victoria J Market in Mangilao. That case remains un-solved. Nor are they being accused of any of the other 8 armed robberies that have occurred over the past month.
