A minister, originally from south Georgia, is back home Friday after being detained in Jamaica when authorities found a bullet in his luggage.

Steven Carter's flight landed in Atlanta late this afternoon.

He and his wife were ending a vacation in Jamaica Tuesday when airport security officers found a .22 caliber bullet in his duffle bag.

Carter doesn't own a gun and says the bullet may have been hidden for years in the bag that used to belong to his father.

Jamaican authorities threatened to charge him with crimes that could have sent him to prison for years.

Instead, he paid a $3,000 and was released from jail Thursday night.

Carter lives in Athens now.

He's from Berrien County and used to work at a church in Camilla.
