Actually, I was again not paying attention; you do not need either 
Return or Throw or anything in the second Return position:

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

is all you need in this kind of code. You do not need Return or 
anything else to return output in Mathematica, only to exit certain 
loops.
