Reputed gangster Tesha Miller was yesterday released from police custody without charge.

His attorney, Bert Samuels, said Miller was met by relatives on his release.

Kingston and St Andrew Parish Judge Vaughn Smith ruled that Miller must be charged by 6 p.m. yesterday or released from police custody.

Miller, who is believed to be the leader of the St Catherine-based Clansman gang, had been in police custody since April 4 when he was deported from The Bahamas.

In court yesterday morning, his attorney, Able-Don Foote, described as sinister, the continued detention of Miller.

On Tuesday, Miller pleaded guilty to making a false declaration to Jamaican immigration officials and was fined the maximum $100.

However, he remained in the custody of the police, who had indicated that he was the subject of a number of investigations.

Miller was interviewed by detectives from the Major Investigations Task Force and the Counter Terrorism and Organised Crime division before being released.
