PALAKTA, Fla. -- New drug-related charges are about to be issued against Ronald Cummings and Misty Croslin, according to the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office.
The two, the father of Haleigh Cummings, the girl who disappeared from her Satsuma home nearly a year ago, and his ex-wife were among five people arrested last month on drug charges.
Ronald Cummings, his ex-wife Misty Croslin, her brother, and two others were arrested and jailed in January to face charges of trafficking in prescription medications.
The arrests happened more than 11 months after the disappearance of Haleigh Cummings, Ronald's daughter, who was in the care of Misty Croslin when she disappeared.
Haleigh, 5-years-old at the time of her disappearance, vanished sometime after Croslin said she put the girl to bed at the couple's home in Satsuma.
The Putnam County Sheriff's Office said its investigation began when a "source" told authorities information.
Investigators say a total of seven buys took place, all involving the drugs Hydrocodone and Oxycodone.
Authorities arrested five people in all. Hope Sykes, a cousin of Ronald Cummings, is among them, along with Donna Broch of Orlando.
Misty Croslin faces six counts of trafficking in prescription medications. She's being held on a $1,350,000 bond at the St. Johns County Detention Center, according to law enforcement.
Currently, Ronald Cummings faces three counts of trafficking in prescription medications. He is being held on a $500,000 bond at the Putnam County Jail.
Hank "Tommy" Croslin Jr. faces one count of trafficking in prescription medications. He's being held on a $100,000 bond at the St. Johns County Detention Center.
