Reputed gangster Tesha Miller has been released from police custody without charge.

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

Earlier today, Kingston and St Andrew Parish Judge Vaughn Smith ruled that Miller must be charged by 6 o'clock this afternoon 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 this morning, his attorney Able-Don Foote described as sinister, the continued detention of the reputed gangster.

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

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

Last evening, Miller was interviewed by detectives from the Major Investigations Taskforce and the Counter Terrorism and Organised Crime division.
