Police officers who chased a man who ran from a car they were following found a rucksack containing £2,000 of drugs and paperwork in his name in a garden, a court has heard.
Pc Christopher Moreton told Ipswich Crown Court that at 4.25am on March 19 he was in a marked police car in Stowmarket and had followed a Peugeot because of the way it was being driven.
The car stopped in Lindsey Way and a man carrying a rucksack got out and ran off towards Lavenham Way.
Pc Moreton heard a crashing noise coming from gardens in Lavenham Way and although he didn't find the man who got out of the car he found a rucksack containing heroin and cocaine, a lock knife, cannabis and documents belonging to Cameron Williams.
Williams, 20, of Earlmead Road, London, has denied possessing crack cocaine and heroin with intent supply.
