CAHOKIA, Ill. (KSDK) – A 48-year-old man faces drug and weapons charges after a months-long investigation into suspicions that he had been manufacturing methamphetamine in his home.
Raymond Leslie has been charged with aggravated possession with the intent to deliver methamphetamine and unlawful possession of a weapon by a felon after authorities executed a search warrant on his home at 850 Jerome Lane Tuesday morning.
His bond has been set at $200,000.
The investigation was part of a multi-agency crackdown on methamphetamine users in the area. Sixteen methamphetamine-related arrests have been made since January 2014, according to a news release.
