REPUTED Klansman leader Tesha Miller is expected to be closely watched by the police after he arrives in Jamaica, following his serving of a prison term in the United States.
Commissioner of Police Dr Carl Williams told journalists on Friday that the police have been “doing our planning to ensure that [Miller] doesn’t add to our problems”.
Miller, who was convicted in the United States in 2014 on a charge of illegal entry, was scheduled to arrive in the island yesterday.
News last year that he would have been released early, triggered anxiety among Spanish Town, St Catherine residents as there was an intense battle at the time for leadership of the criminal Klansman gang that is supportive of the ruling People’s National Party.
Police said at the time that they would be keeping a watch on communities within Spanish Town, which is the seat of the gang.
Last year’s news of Miller’s pending return came less than a week after his brother, Craig Miller, was shot and killed at a premises on March Pen Road in Spanish Town.
Miller fled to the United States after he was freed of gun and robbery charges by the Court of Appeal in March 2013.
Miller was sentenced in the High Court Division of the Gun Court to seven years’ imprisonment for illegal possession of a firearm and 15 years for robbery with aggravation, which led to him filing the appeal.
In June 2010, Miller, also called ‘Rat’, was acquitted of the 2004 gun murder of John Haughton in the Home Circuit Court because of insufficient evidence.
Months before, Miller was freed of the triple murders of Oraine Jackson, Jeffery Johnson and Nicole Allen in Braeton, St Catherine in January 2005.
