Air and Space recruiters in the Central Valley area of California were proud to announce the recruits they were shipping out to boot camp on Instagram, in 2021, but they have since deleted their Instagram account.

One of those Airmen, featured in that post was Anthony Osuna, who was just arrested over the weekend on suspicion of breaking into a liquor store on Okinawa -the Japanese island.

The 23-year-old Airman 1st Class, 23, is accused of breaking into the store between 7:39 a.m. and 7:50 a.m. Sunday, a Naha police spokesman told Stars and Stripes.

Police say he broke in through the back door and knocked down shelves but fled when the security alarm was activated.

Police responded after they were contacted by the security company and he was arrested on suspicion of trespassing at 9:49 a.m.

“All Airmen, whether permanent party or deployed, are expected to uphold the highest standards of conduct in and out of the uniform, and the U.S. Air Force will hold anyone accountable who commits criminal acts under the applicable laws,” a statement from Kadena Air Force base public affairs said.

The base is cooperating with local authorities and providing support to the airman who is still in police custody as of Monday.
