AL Miller, the clergyman in whose company former Tivoli Gardens strongman Christopher 'Dudus' Coke was found, has turned himself in to the police.

A police source said Miller handed himself over to officers at the Organised Crime Investigative Division at Orange Street in downtown, Kingston about 2:00 pm today.

Miller was instrumental in bringing into custody Coke's siblings, Leighton 'Livity' Coke and his sister Janet who were named as persons of interest.

Yesterday, police Commissioner Owen Ellington appealed to Miller to hand himself in as the police were interested in interviewing him.

"From our standpoint, we believe that he needs to come in and speak with us because there are some questions that he needs to answer," Ellington said.

Miller reportedly told police that he was escorting Coke to the United States embassy in Liguanea as Coke had expressed fear for his life.

It is not clear whether Miller will spend time behind bars or be charged for aiding and abetting a known fugitive.

"We can only confirm that he has turned himself in. We are not prepared to say much more at this time," head of the Constabulary Communications Network, Inspector Steve Brown told the Observer.
