A fugitive and alleged member of the "Jamaican death squad" has been captured in the Ajax area.

Det Andrew Lawson with the Toronto Police Fugitive Squad says he received a call from the RCMP last Monday that a man wanted for murder in Jamaica was believed to be in the GTA. 

Lawson says the suspect fled Jamaica and entered Canada, lawfully, to visit family about two years ago. He says the 28-year-old man was not wanted until recently. 

The fugitive is wanted for one murder but is also being investigated for 40 other murders. Lawson says the fugitive was a police officer at the time of the incidents. 

"He belonged to a unit being dubbed by the press in Jamaica as the Jamaican Death Squad," Det Lawson alleges. "It is our understanding that it was a group of police officers basically going around and committing murders." 

Witney Hutchinson was arrested on Friday at a home in the Ajax area. 

He has been taken into custody pending his removal from Canada back to Jamaica.
