An Ipswich man who was in bed when police raided his home was found to have a bag containing drugs stuck on his bag, it has been alleged.

Police officers went to Jonathan Field’s first floor flat in Morgan Drive, Ipswich, to execute a search warrant at around 11.50am and were let into the property by his son, Ipswich Crown Court heard.

Field was in bed and when he got up he was found to have a bag containing nine wraps of crack cocaine and 32 wraps of heroin stuck to his back, said Alex Rooke, prosecuting.

A bag containing a cutting agent and three sets of electric scales were also found at the property.

Field told police he was a drug user but denied being a drug dealer.

Field, 50, has pleaded not guilty to possessing crack cocaine and heroin with intent to supply on March 31 last year.

The trial, which is expected to finish this week, continues.
