Dudus’ Coke caught – media reports
|Fugitive Christopher Dudus Coke reported to be in police custody|
The Jamaican government wants to extradite Mr Coke to the US to face charges of drug and gun trafficking.
Attempts to capture him in May led to clashes which killed scores of people.
Mr Coke, 41, is accused of being the leader of the notorious Shower Posse, which US authorities say operates an international drugs and guns network.
The gang has also been blamed for numerous murders in Jamaica and the US.
Police said Mr Coke had been captured in the Portmore area of St Catherine Parish, Reuters reported.
There were no immediate reports of violence during the capture.
The Jamaica Observer said Mr Coke was being held at Spanish Town police station which was surrounded by soldiers.
The operation to capture Mr Coke last month centered on his stronghold in Kingston’s Tivoli Gardens.
More than 70 people were killed in gun battles between police and armed young men.
