The father of HaLeigh Ann-Marie Cummings, the 5-year-old girl who has been missing since she was reported missing from her Putnam County home nearly a year ago, and his ex-wife were arrested Wednesday on drug trafficking charges after a monthlong undercover investigation, police said...
Ronald L Cummings is facing three counts of trafficking prescription medications, and his bond would be posted at $500,000, according to a statement from the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office released late Wednesday.
Misty Janette Croslin, 18, Cummings’ live-in girlfriend when HaLeigh disappeared, is facing six counts of the same charge. Croslin’s bond was set at $950,000.
The Sheriff's Office said that on seven different occasions, undercover investigators purchased the painkillers Oxycodone and Hydrocodone from the suspects and estimated the "street value" of the drugs at $3,900.00...
Three others were also arrested in the ring.
Croslin’s brother, Hank "Tommy" Croslin Jr., 23, of Satsuma, is facing one count of the trafficking charge. His bond was $100,000.

Hope A. Sykes, 18, of Satsuma, and Donna Brock, 44, of Orlando, were also arrested.
Sykes is facing one count and will be held on a $150,000 bond. Brock is also facing one count but will be held on a $250,000 bond...
Information was obtained that these individuals were unlawfully selling prescription medications in the community,” the release said. “Sheriff (Jeff Hardy) assigned detectives from the Drug/Vice Unit to the investigation.
