FORMER Tivoli Gardens strongman Christopher 'Dudus' Coke is now being held at a secure location, said Police Commissioner Owen Ellington.

Coke was transported by Jamaica Defence Force (JDF) helicopter from Spanish Town, St Catherine this afternoon.

He was arrested in the company of Reverend Al Miller who said he was taking Coke to the United States Embassy at Coke's request.

They were stopped by police at a road check on Mandela Highway.

The police recognised the fugitive, who was being transported to Kingston from out of town.

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.
