“I hope that today’s guilty verdict on Harley Robinson will provide Jason’s family with some sense of comfort and reassurance that justice has now been served.
“This has been a long and complex investigation and hours of CCTV footage were trawled in the initial stages to establish our suspect. Once Robinson was identified as our main suspect, we then had the task of locating him and bringing him in for questioning.
“I am pleased the jury has reached this verdict following the hard work by the investigating officers within our Major Crime Team to build a strong evidential case against Robinson.
“I would like to thank those involved in this investigation for their dedication and for the support of our colleagues across the force and the Crown Prosecution Service.”
