Cody Leslie remains in the Shelby County Jail without bond. Captain Clay Hammac, Commander of the Drug Task Force, stated, “It was clearly a busy 31 days for Mr. Leslie. However, thanks to the assistance from our partnering law enforcement agencies and our District Attorney, Mr. Leslie will no longer be free to bring dangerous drugs into our communities until he is released by the court, which may be a very long wait for him.” Captain Hammac said, “We hope the message remains clear, if a drug dealer comes to Shelby County to sell drugs in our communities, we will pursue him and we will work tirelessly to see that he spends a very long time in prison!”
