Man accused of drug dealing denies knowledge of mobile phone in pocket
A motorist arrested by police officers who suspected him and his passenger of drug dealing has denied knowing anything about a mobile phone containing messages relating to drug dealing found in his pocket.
Giving evidence during his trial at Ipswich Crown Court, Katakyie Addie-Kodua said the Nokia mobile phone wasn’t his and must have belonged to his passenger.
Addie-Kodua, 26, of London, has denied possessing heroin and cocaine with intent to supply on November 29 last year.
The court heard that as police officers were about to approach the defendant’s car they saw a gaunt looking male approach the passenger window and suspected a drug deal was about to take place.
The officers found two wraps of heroin and cocaine in the passenger footwell and later discovered a further 54 wraps containing the drugs in the passenger’s trousers.
