FORMER Tivoli Gardens strongman Christopher 'Dudus' Coke is now being held at Spanish Town Police Station in St Catherine.
The fugitive was handed over to police by Reverend Al Miller and is prepared to commit himself to due process and waive his right to an extradition hearing.
Miller confirmed on a radio programme a few minutes ago that he had been transporting Dudus to the United States Embassy, when the car was stopped by a police spot check team.
The police recognised the fugitive, who was being transported to Kingston from out of town.
Meanwhile, the police station has been ringed by soldiers who have taken up strategic positions. Curious onlookers have begun gathering outside the police station.
Coke is wanted by the United States on gun and drug trafficking charges.
A $5 million dollar reward was recently placed for information leading to his arrest.
We will be bringing you live updates from the police press conference beginning at 6:15 pm.
