The Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) is reporting that a man it labels one of Jamaica's top tier gangsters and violence producers was recently captured in the United States.

He is Michael Headley, otherwise called ‘Dudus’, of Salt Pond Road in Spanish Town, St Catherine.

Two other persons, Mead Myrie and Kevon Maitland were also arrested.

The police say they are wanted for various crimes including murder.

Headley was captured through collaborative efforts of the National Strategic Anti-Gang Unit and its international law enforcement partners.

The police say Headley is a known member of the Klansman Gang, which operates in Spanish Town, St Catherine and its environs.

He was wanted for murders and shootings.  

The JCF says the three men are to be deported to Jamaica, after which local detectives will pursue several matters against them under the anti-gang law.
