Having been hit with the maximum punishment of $100 for breaching the country's Immigration laws on Tuesday, Tesha Miller was today released from police custody without charge.

This is despite police labelling him as a person of interest who they claimed could assist with investigations into several murders recorded in Spanish Town and Portmore in St Catherine.

A reputed gangster, the police spent nearly eight months seeking to take Miller into their custody. The hunt ended when he was captured in the Bahamas and deported to Jamaica for a second time. 

When Miller appeared in the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court Tuesday and was hit with the $100 fine, the police indicated, at the time, that there was an endorsement on his file in relation to the Anti-Gang Act.

But Parish judge Vaughn Smith, following an application by Attorney-at-law Able-Don Foote, this morning ordered that Miller be charged by 6 p.m. today or be released from custody.

He was released from police custody shortly after 5:30 p.m. today.
