Tesha Miller to face court on fraud charges
Alleged Clansman gang leader Tesha Miller is scheduled to appear in the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court on April 18 to answer to two counts of fraud after senior detectives charged him on Tuesday.
This follows his deportation from The Bahamas on April 4.
According to the police, Miller made a false declaration and left Jamaica using a fake name.
Yesterday his attorney Able Don Foote made a Habeas Corpus application for Miller's release from custody, arguing that his client was being held without charge since April 4.
However, senior investigators from Counter Terrorism and Organised Crime Investigation Branch (CTOC) who were in court advised the parish judge of the updated investigation.
The court was told that Miller, who is being held at the Hunts Bay lock-up since April 4, was charged on Tuesday after advice was sought from the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP).
The police also told the court that Miller is being investigated for other matters.
The St Catherine North police listed Miller as a person of interest following a spike in murders in that division last year, where his affiliate Clansman Gang is reportedly engaged in criminal activities.
The police theorise that Miller could assist in their investigation of several murders in Spanish Town and sections of Portmore during the first quarter of 2016.
Miller, however, fled to The Bahamas where immigration officials held him before handing him over to Jamaica authorities.
