*Finally that notorious Jamaican kingpin has been arrested. It happened Tuesday.
Christopher “Dudus” Coke has been avoiding authorities for some time and has managed to get away.
But his fortune turned around when he was intercepted at a police checkpoint while he was reported en route to the U.S. Embassy to respond to a warrant for his arrest.
It was no easy task taking the alleged drug lord down. It has been a month long bloody pursuit. It finally ended when police followed up on a tip and stopped his convoy, which included a well-known pastor Rev. Al Miller.
“The Police High Command has raised the threat level from criminal violence against the Jamaica Constabulary Force to extremely high, meaning that attacks are expected imminently…based on intelligence suggesting that detained and displaced criminals as well as other criminals are planning attacks on security personnel and assets.”
Coke is also known in New York and is currently facing drug trafficking and gunrunning charges. The U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) has labeled him the “world’s most dangerous narcotics kingpins.”
The Prime Minister of Jamaica, Bruce Golding, urged the U.S. to sign an extradition warrant some time ago. As a result, terrible violence swept through Kingston, leaving more than 100 people dead and structural damages totally to over $100 million.
