Former Stephen Lawrence murder suspect 'on run from police'
One of the original suspects in the Stephen Lawrence murder inquiry is on the run from police.
Jamie Acourt, 39, from Bexley, is wanted by officers for drugs offences.
A Met Police spokesperson confirmed Mr Acourt was wanted "in connection with an investigation, namely, conspiracy to supply drugs".
It is alleged that Mr Acourt is part of a gang, with links to London and the North East, accused of supplying large amounts of cannabis worth millions.
Mr Acourt has always denied involvement in the killing of 18-year-old Stephen Lawrence, who was stabbed to death in 1993, in Eltham, south-east London.
In 2012 Gary Dobson and David Norris were convicted of Stephen's murder and given life sentences.
