Christopher "Dudus" Coke in Custody

The Jamaican drug lord whose gang once terrorized Miami is in custody, The Guardian is reporting.

Christopher "Dudus" Coke was a Robin Hood in Jamaica. At least 73 people on the island have died in battles with police, who were trying to bring him in. The United States has called for his extradition. He is charged with exporting coke and marijuana to the U.S. More on this to come.

Last month, we published a story about the Shower Posse's exploits in Miami. The family has a long and murderous history here.

Jamaican press is reporting Coke was handed over by a Jamaican minister and that he is prepared to waive his right to an extradition hearing.
