On Jan. 10, 2019, Cody Demond Flenoury, 32, tried to steal three tins of Sunny Sea sardines and a package of Mrs. Freshly’s Delicious Deals Honey Buns.
But instead of successfully shoplifting, Flenoury punched an employee attempting to stop him. He was arrested, tried, jailed and then lost in the system.
He served more than a year in various locked down treatment and detention facilities before his final sentencing of “time served” on Feb. 3 of this year.
The court order for his release was sent to his jailers, but nothing happened.
