A man accused of coughing at police when arrested on suspicion of burglary will face trial later this year.
Marcus Mckenzie, 31, of Hardy Crescent, Ipswich is charged with burglary, taking a vehicle without consent, driving it while disqualified and assaulting an emergency worker on April 17.
Mckenzie is alleged to have stolen car keys, a TV, bag, purse, bank cards, two bottles of spirit and a wallet from an address in Carlyle Close.
He is then alleged to have taken a Ford Focus and driven it while disqualified.
He denied all charges, along with an allegation he coughed at a police officer, at Ipswich Crown Court on Friday.
