The Reverend Merrick 'Al' Miller has been found guilty of a corruption charge arising from the 2010 capture of then fugitive Christopher Dudus Coke.

The verdict was handed down in the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court a short while ago by Parish Judge Simone Wolfe-Reece.

It comes more than six years after Coke was captured in a sport utility vehicle that was being driven by Miller along Mandela Highway in St Catherine in 2010, ending an islandwide manhunt for the drug kingpin.

Miller was initially charged with harbouring a fugitive and attempting to pervert the course of justice.

The charge of harbouring a fugitive was dropped shortly after the trial began.

The popular pastor is in charge of the Fellowship Tabernacle church in St Andrew.
