Tesha Miller, the man believed to be the leader of the Clansman Gang based in Spanish Town, St Catherine, has been processed by the police and released after arriving in the island earlier today.

Miller was processed at the Mobile Reserve Division shortly after he and several Jamaicans were deported from the United States.

Deputy Commissioner of Police Glenmore Hinds confirmed that Jamaican authorities were aware of Miller’s pending deportation.

However, Hinds, who heads the crime portfolio, said he was not aware that there is any legal basis for the police to keep Miller in custody.

“When he left Jamaica he was not wanted,” Hinds told The Gleaner this afternoon.

Miller was convicted by United States authorities in 2014 for illegally re-entering that country.

His conviction in the US came nearly a year after the Jamaican Appeal Court throw out a 2011 conviction for robbery and illegal possession of firearm.
