A man has denied that a rucksack containing £2,000 of drugs and documents in his name which was found in a garden in Stowmarket belonged to him.
Cameron Williams told Ipswich Crown Court he had been in a car which was being followed by police and was forced to run off with the rucksack after another passenger held a knife at his throat.
Williams claimed he had panicked and put paperwork bearing his name and address, which had been in his jacket pocket, in the rucksack because he didn't want it found in him.
He denied that his paperwork was in the rucksack with drugs and a lock knife because the rucksack and its contents belonged to him.
Williams, 20, of Earlmead Road, London, has denied possessing crack cocaine and heroin with intent supply on March 19 but admits possessing cannabis and a knife.
