Christopher Dudus Coke Turned Over to U.S. Officials

• Accused Jamaican Drug Lord Arrived in New York Thursday Evening


Christopher Coke, the accused drug lord captured by Jamaican police Tuesday, was escorted by U.S. federal agents off a plane in suburban Westchester County, New York, at about 7 p.m. after his extradition from Jamaica.
He is expected to be arraigned in federal court in Manhattan on Friday.
Coke, also known as Dudus, who was wanted by the Southern District of New York on drug and weapons charges, was captured by Jamaican police on the outskirts of Kingston on Tuesday. He waived his right to judicial proceedings in Jamaica, according to a statement from the Justice Department, and was transferred to the custody of the U.S. Marshals service and the DEA.
U.S. Marshals, DEA agents and federal prosecutors had worked hand in hand with senior Jamaican military and police officials in an effort to effect Coke's surrender and extradition. His attorney had contacted U.S. authorities on Monday advising that Coke was considering turning himself in to the U.S. It was the first communication that U.S. authorities had had with Coke's attorney in several weeks.
"We are relieved that Coke's arrest and transfer to New York was not marked by the violence that had gripped the streets of Jamaica for so many days," said U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara. "We look forward to presenting our case to a jury in a Manhattan courtroom and bringing Coke to justice."
