Drug lord captured disguised as Woman

POLITICS - Drug lord Christopher “Dudus” Coke, 42, was captured yesterday after a month long search and "civil war" with his army of supporters in Jamaica. Coke's armed gunmen roamed the streets shooting at police and attacking civilians following a bungled attempt to capture the drug lord when the United States requested an extradition of the man to face drug and gun trafficking charges. Coke's supporters were so well-armed that 73 civilians and 3 police/military personnel were killed in the ensuing violence.

Police captured Coke yesterday thanks to a tip that he was hiding in a church on the outskirts of Kingston, disguised as a woman and wearing a wig. Reverend Al Miller, who had mediated the surrender of Coke’s brother, Leighton, to police is believed to be the tipster. The two men left the church and were on their way to the U.S. Embassy to surrender when Coke was spotted at a checkpoint.

Police are now looking for Reverend Miller. Jamaican police offered a $5 million reward for information leading to his arrest of Coke two days ago, but aren't looking to reward Rev. Miller but instead want to arrest him for helping the drug lord.

The bungled arrest of Coke followed scrutiny of Jamaican Prime Minister Bruce Golding who had previously declined is execute an arrest order, sparking concerns the PM was corrupt and protecting the criminal. (Many islands in the Caribbean have problems with organized crime, drugs/weapons trafficking and corrupt governments who look the other way.) Teetering on losing his support Bruce Golding opted to execute the arrest, but the bungled attempt only cast doubt on the abilities of local law enforcement.

Its believed informants inside the local police force warned Coke that an arrest was coming and that allowed him to escape undetected. Until yesterday Coke was considered the most powerful drug lord in all of Jamaica, the leader of the Shower Posse, so-called because they "shower" their victims with bullets.
