Method 1 (not really recommended)
In[70]:=
lmaa := Module[
{},
Do[
If[i > 3, Return[Return[{"from inside"}]]],
{i, 1, 5}
];
Return[{"not from inside"}]
]

lmaa

{from inside}

Method 2 (recommended):

lmaa := Module[
{},
Catch[ Do[
If[i > 3, Throw[{"from inside"}]],
{i, 1, 5}
];
Return[{"not from inside"}]]
]

lmaa

{from inside}

Finally, there is absolutely no point using a Module whiteout any local
variables.
