A MAN caught with wraps of heroin and cocaine outside a city pub has denied trying to sell them.

Andrew Adams denies two counts of possession with intent to supply class A drugs but has admitted possessing the banned substances.

The 31-year-old of Luther Street, Oxford, began his trial at Oxford Crown Court yesterday.

Outlining the case to the jury of six men and six women prosecutor Jonathan Veasey-Pugh said Adams was spotted by police outside an Oxford pub in the early hours of November 24 2017.

He said that Adams was near the doorway to the Cow and Creek pub, New Road, with other individuals.

Jurors were told that police believed Adams 'was supplying drugs' while outside the pub.

Adams was arrested and he was found to have in his possession £90 in cash and two mobile phones.

Prosecutors said that analysis of the phones uncovered 'messaging consistent with drugs' on one of the items.

The court also heard that he was found to have a total of four wraps of class A drugs - made up of one wrap of heroin and three wraps of cocaine.

It was claimed that Adams tried 'tried to jettison' some of the drugs under a police car but that this was recovered.

Jurors also heard that during interview he denied dealing drugs and said the seized substances had been for his own 'personal use with no intention of giving or selling it to anyone else.'

Adams also said one of the mobile phones had been 'borrowed' and that the cash had come from completing work he had carried out with a friend.

He then declined to answer any further questions from officers.

Mr Veasey-Pugh said that the issue the jury had to decide was whether the drugs in Adams' possession were to be sold on to others or not.

The trial continues.
