Man Admits Killing Black Country Drug Runner
A man has been given life in prison for murdering Black Country teenager Camran Green.
31 year old Steven Sharpe of Shakespeare Road, Cheltenham pleaded guilty to the murder of 17 year Camran Green from Wednesbury at Bristol Crown Court.
Sharpe stabbed Camran in the stomach in a robbery at an address on Shakespeare Road on Sunday 2 October 2016.
Sharpe fled the scene on his bike and evaded police for three days until his arrest on 5 October.
When he was taken into custody he spat at three police detention officers, committing assault by beating offences he also pleaded guilty to today.
He was given 24 years in jail.
Detective Chief Inspector Ruth Mather said: "Drug gangs from big cities have been using vulnerable young men on a frequent basis as drug runners in smaller towns to do their dirty work for them.
"Camran was being used in this way - basing himself at Sharpe's girlfriend's address to deal crack cocaine and heroin for gang leaders in Birmingham.
"Tragically Camran had his life taken as a result of that work.
"Camran's family have been devastated by Sharpe's cowardly actions and I hope today's guilty plea will provide some comfort for them."
