The Police High Command is appealing to residents of St. Catherine and its environs, to remain calm ahead of Monday’s return to the island of the reputed head of the feared Clansman gang, Tesha Miller.
In September 2013, US immigration authorities arrested Miller shortly after his arrival in Miami, Florida.
The 35-year old was found guilty of illegally re-entering the United States and sentenced to 28-months in prison.
Miller has developed a reputation as one Jamaica’s most feared gangsters.
Law enforcement officials say he’s to be deported to the island on Monday.
Commanding officer for the St. Catherine North Police, Senior Superintendent Marlon Nesbeth says the security forces have a plan for Miller and his cronies who may be excited by his return.
Just last week, Miller’s younger sibling, Craig, was among two persons murdered by gunmen on March Pen Road.
The Police say gang violence was responsible for the double murder.
SSP Nesbeth says the Police will increase their presence in Spanish Town and surrounding areas in anticipation of Miller’s return to Jamaica.
The commanding officer is appealing for law abiding citizens to be calm.
The anti-gang law, which allows the Police to take gang-affiliated persons into custody, was not in effect when Miller left Jamaica.
SSP Nesbeth is noting that times have changed and the Police will be using the anti-gang law to to good effect.
