Another Croslin Arrest
By
Jeff Hess
@ July 26, 2010 2:18 PM

More troubles for the family of a missing girl.
Since Haleigh Cummings went missing in February of 2009, there has been an endless string of trouble for her family.

This time, the parents of the last person to see her have been arrested for allegedly trying to buy crack.

Police said Lisa and Hank Croslin Sr. bought the crack from an undercover this weekend.
They facing drug charges and tampering with evidence for trying to get rid of the drugs. Both are being held on a 5-thousand dollar bond.

They are the parents of Misty Croslin, the last person to see Haleigh alive before she vanished. Misty and Haleigh's father Ron are both in jail on drug charges unrelated to Haleigh's disappearance.

hi guys...
here is my take and latest opinion not that either is worth much...
they didn't target hank and lisa they targeted the house prob.. maybe the house came to their attention since hank and lisa frequent it but eeeh whatever... by the way $20 of coke is usually 2 small lines 91 for each of them) and if you are buying a 20 then you will soon be back for a second 20 this is what coke/crack heads do... they won't wait until they can come up with 100 and buy more for cheap they will nickel and dime their way thru the day buying 20 after 20 as the money comes in... so what are they doing where they might get a $20 bill later? hhhm illegal chit i'm sure...
and i wonder if they will use hank to testify against misty or poor daddy being in jail as leverage to get misty to talk... i think either one is useless and i have no clue why they would even try to get any of these liars to testify against each other since they are all liars and make for a weak witness testimony case... seems futile to me if they use tommy against misty, misty against tommy, lisa against tommy, lisa against misty, hank against misty, hank against tommy... either way you slice it the defense simply has to say well wasn't your story totally different in the beginning and the witness testimony is shot to chit. as far as ron testifying in unrelated drug charges i think some of you are misinterpreting that statement it does not mean charges that are not related to drugs as in the haleigh case it means drug charges that are unrelated to his drug charges ie misty's other ones... and why would he do that because as of now misty is supposedly pleaing no contest so it wouldn't be needed since there won't be a trial but if there is a trial if she changes it it just gives the state more leverage to make her not want a trial and stick to pleaing either guilty or no contest (it's all about saving money on all the drug charges) even if he didn't get a plea they would not have given him 15 years for each charge and if they did at least some of them would have been served concurrent like you get found guilty of 3 and get sentenced for 15 yrs each charge but only serve a total of 15 years because they let you count the 15 yrs towards all 3 charges (hope that makes sense) his plea doesn't really benefit him at all as far as i can see and i think he is just doing it because they asked him to and he wants to people to think maybe he can scare misty into confessing something about haleigh but i think ron knows whatever she knows already so this whole plea thing is nothing but bs to make ron look like the good guy and misty the bad guy and when she doesn't crack after being threatened with rons testimony against her on the drug charges it is not because she is truthful and cannot crack it is because she already knows that most of her sentence will be concurrent as well so in final either the da knows she already knows this as any lawyer worth his salt would have told their client and they are just trying to save money on trial and room and board or they are really that stupid and value any of these chitbags testimony. i'll bet the farm that no one gets sentenced to more then 30 yrs with or without testimony against them and maybe not more then 15 (take into account the time they have been there already and good behavior time even less then that...
haleigh is gone and we will most likely never find her at this point even if she is found in the next 5 yrs there def won't be any physical evidence to pin it on anyone and there might not even be enough dna evidence left at that point to confirm its definitely her at which point they will say (due to her small body) female (at best) child age 3-7 found has been there for 3-10 years and with the state of florida and there missing child rate that could be any number of people... i would love to see haleigh in a jaycee situation and come back and spit in her own families faces but at this point the light at the end of that tunnel has gone very dim for me... even after papa's beautiful sunshine face pic (the best and most hopeful one i've seen as of yet)
*disclaimer I don't actually have a farm to bet
damnit guys i've been reading here all along not posting much and nothing new to say at all really except i really had the most hope for this case and in the end it seems to be the most hopeless one after all... i knew she was dead from the beginning but i thought by now we would have had her home....

AH RC will not get the finality, or his sentencing until after MC's trial. They are not bargaining with RC now until LE knows just what RC will give them.

Misty Croslin's parents charged in sting
Police say they allegedly bought cocaine in Palatka

By Karen Voyles
Staff writer

Published: Tuesday, July 27, 2010 at 6:30 a.m.
Last Modified: Tuesday, July 27, 2010 at 1:23 a.m.
Another round of drug cases with ties to missing Haleigh Cummings, the 5-year-old who was reported missing from her father's Satsuma home in February 2009, is now working its way through the Putnam County court system.
On Friday night, Palatka police arrested Lisa Carmen Croslin, 40, and Hank Thomas Croslin Sr., 41, on charges of purchasing cocaine, tampering with evidence and violating their probation in earlier cases. The Croslins' daughter, Misty Croslin, was watching Haleigh the night the little girl disappeared.

According to Assistant Police Chief James Griffith, the Croslins were arrested Friday night during an undercover crack cocaine operation at a home at 809 Bronson St. in Palatka.

"They came up and bought drugs," Griffith said. "(Lisa) was driving and (Hank Sr.) was the passenger. He went inside and bought $20 worth of cocaine."

According to Griffith, the two were allowed to drive away and appeared to throw the cocaine out the window when they noticed police were trying to pull them over.
Both of the Croslins already were on felony probation, Lisa in connection with a forgery case, and Hank Sr. in connection with a case of shopping for doctors to get prescription drugs. They were being held Monday at the Putnam County jail. They were both denied bond on the violation of probation charges.

Previous undercover drug operations in Putnam and St. Johns counties have resulted in drug charges being filed against Haleigh's father, Ronald Cummings, 26; his ex-wife, Misty Croslin, 19; his cousin Hope Sykes, 19; Misty's brother, Hank "Tommy" Croslin Jr., 23; and Misty's friend Donna Brock, 44. They were all arrested and accused of selling prescription drugs.
Ronald Cummings tentatively reached a plea agreement with the state on drug-trafficking charges earlier this month and likely will be sentenced to 15 years in prison when he is sentenced in late August.

In April, Sykes pleaded no contest to a count of trafficking prescription narcotics and was sentenced to 15 years in prison, the mandatory minimum sentence.

Tommy Croslin also pleaded no contest and will be sentenced Aug. 6.

ISSUES WITH JANE VELEZ-MITCHELL

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Jaw-dropping twist in the case of missing little Haleigh Cummings who disappeared on Misty Croslin`s watch. Now Misty`s parents have been arrested accused of buying crack cocaine from an undercover agent. With the whole family in jail on drug charges, will somebody finally reveal what happened to little Haleigh?

Tonight, mind boggling new misadventures in the Haleigh Cummings family drama: Misty Croslin`s parents have landed in the clink on drug charges. Police said Hank Croslin was busted in a cocaine sting Friday. Daughter, Misty and her brother, Tommy are already in jail on drug charges. Does the family that drug together stay together? In jail? It seems that way.

Misty`s ex and Haleigh`s dad, Ron Cummings also face drug charges. Ron`s cousin Hope Sykes is also serving a 15-year prison sentence for drugs. What the heck is going on here? This is outrageous.

Florida police say Lisa and Hank Senior tried to buy crack cocaine from undercover officers.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
ASST. CHIEF JAMES GRIFFITH, PALATKA POLICE DEPT: They bought $20 worth of crack cocaine -- one rock.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Hank and Lisa Croslin also allegedly threw the drugs out of the car window when they saw the cops were closing in. That earned them an evidence-tampering charge.

Now, this isn`t the first time at the dance, folks. The happy couple are also accused of violating parole. I don`t think Misty is going to be turning to mommy and daddy for comfort anytime soon.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: What a mess. Misty was babysitting little Haleigh the very night she vanished nearly a year and a half ago. Police have ruled this case a homicide but a body has never been found. Nobody has been charged.

Now that Misty and her whole darn family are behind bars, will Misty finally, finally, finally spill the beans about what happened the night Haleigh went missing?

I want to welcome back my fantastic expert panel but first, to investigative journalist Art Harris, who`s all over this case. Art, what is the very latest?

ART HARRIS, INVESTIGATIVE JOURNALIST: I can tell you that Hank and Lisa Croslin were cruising through a rough neighborhood in Palatka, Florida on Friday night looking for drugs, Jane. They pulled over to a drug house that they`re familiar with. Lisa is driving. Misty`s father gets out and goes and buys from an undercover cop. He did not know that this is a place they just busted and they were now playing dealer, selling to buyers who were driving by.

This is a frequent thing they do down, you know, in a lot of places for drug busts. And right now so we drive off, Hank`s got a rock of crack cocaine. And just down the road, they pull over. In the meantime, the mother is seeing a blue light in the back. She throws the rock of crack cocaine out the window. Police never find it. And they`re charged with possession, with buying cocaine, evidence tampering in the toss of the rock and probation violation for previous charges, Jane.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: You know I heard somebody chuckling. And it would be funny because it`s so crazy and so self-destructive but except there`s a dead little girl at the heart of this. At least that`s what police think. They believe she was murdered, but we don`t know how or why or by whom yet.

Now, here`s my big issue -- are you ready to ride into dysfunction junction? All aboard, Croslin family.

It`s hard to believe the irresponsibility of Misty`s parents. Their kids are in jail facing the possibility of decades in prison. How do they respond to that? Let`s go get busted for drugs.

Listen to this clip of Hank visiting his son, Tommy, in prison.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: All right. Why allegedly offer police and prosecutors even more leverage against your own children?

Got to go to Jim Werter who`s Tommy Croslin`s attorney. I mean this is -- these are the parents of your client. Is this a case of apples not falling far from the tree?

JIM WERTER, ATTORNEY FOR TOMMY CROSLIN: Well, Jane, you have to understand that this is generations of drug addiction in this family. And if you`re talking crack cocaine, you have to know that this is a horrendous drug. I`ve never seen -- in 30 years, I`ve never seen the addictive quality of this kind of substance. And it`s just terrible. And they were hoping that Tommy would be the one to break the cycle.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Well, I guess not. I guess not. Misty, Tommy, Ron and his cousin, Hope Sykes were all arrested last January in an undercover drug trafficking sting. Hope pleaded no contest and was sentenced to 15 years. Tommy pleaded no contest and he`s awaiting sentencing. Ron is reportedly close to a plea deal and will likely be sentenced to 15 years. Will Misty end up copping a plea too?

VELEZ-MITCHELL: So Mike Brooks, you know it all comes down to Misty sort of holding the bag while everybody else is copping a plea.

MIKE BROOKS, HLN LAW ENFORCEMENT ANALYST: So to speak.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Yes.

How does this work -- how does this work to put pressure on her to really tell the truth and nothing but the truth about what happened to Haleigh?

BROOKS: Well, you know, I thought maybe, Jane, maybe, there might have been some pressure when Tommy got locked up. You know, but with Hank Senior now, you know, I -- does he really know anything? Tommy should have been telling him on the phone, you know, put the pipe down, daddy. But do the Croslin parents know anything at all? Possibly not.

And I don`t think really it`s going to really put much pressure on Misty. Investigators say from the very beginning that she was a tough nut to crack. And this was months ago we heard about this.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: You know what? If we all sound speechless, it`s because we all are speechless.

BROOKS: It`s unbelievable.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: It`s really unbelievable every time you think you`ve heard the most outrageous aspect of this story, one that`s even more outrageous comes and takes its place.

Jeanne (ph) in Texas, your question or thought, ma`am?

JEANNE, TEXAS (via telephone):: I want to go back to a time when I heard the little boy say that the kid seen something on the couch in a trailer. And I wanted to know did the police ever check for DNA on the couch in Ron Cummings` trailer?

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Ok. Good question. Art Harris, remember the little boy --

HARRIS: Yes.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Tell us about that.

HARRIS: Junior said he saw a black man and the couch bouncing. Now, I know that police had a forensic psychologist interview the child and they have not been able to confirm it.

He was under the age Jane of a child witness who could be credible in court. He may have seen it but we don`t know. As far as DNA, they have not released any information about any matches, but then again, any DNA in that trailer, there is an alibi for, Jane because they all live there. They all visit there.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Now, I have another big issue tonight. Does all of this boil down to what the heck happened down by the river? It seems like there are several missing pieces to the Haleigh puzzle.

Whatever came of the river search, whatever came of it? Whatever came of the cement blocks police dragged out of the river? Did they yield any clues in this case? Grandma Flo Hollars, remember her? She says Cousin Joe Overstreet killed Haleigh and Tommy helped him dump her body in the river.

Let`s listen to this.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

FLORA HOLLARS, MISTY CROSLIN`S GRANDMOTHER: She called me on Monday to let me know that Tommy and Joe had wrapped Misty -- I mean had wrapped Haleigh in a yellow rope and tied a brick to it and throwed her off the dock in the St. Johns River.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Levi page, whatever happened to down by the river?

LEVI PAGE, CRIME BLOGGER: Apparently the police didn`t believe anything that was told to them by the liars, Tommy Croslin and Misty Croslin who lied through their teeth since the beginning of the case. And they didn`t believe Tommy Croslin that Joe Overstreet was involved because if they did believe them, they wouldn`t have to harass him which they falsely claim the police did to him while he was in jail.

They don`t harass people that are telling them the truth and giving them information that would lead them to find a missing child.

And I disagree with what Mike Brooks just said. I think that what we`re going to see -- this will put pressure on Misty because her parents are the ones that have been giving her money to buy all of these little snacks in jail. They`ve been talking to her.

And now that`s not going to happen now. She`s not going to get any money from her parents to buy, you know, all these Doritos and stuff that she likes, she picked 20 pounds in jail. She`s not going to get those treats anymore. She`s not going to have her nightly conversations with them. I think this will put pressure on her.

BROOKS: I don`t think so.

(CROSS TALKING)

VELEZ-MITCHELL: All right. We`ll agree to disagree. It`s just a bizarre, bizarre, bizarre clan down there.

NANCY GRACE Transcript

LALAMA: Unbelievable. And there`s no bond, as we mentioned. And back to you, Art, to go to the second prong of this story, and that`s that we understand that Ronald Cummings, who is the father of little Haleigh, is just about to lock up a plea deal. Do you know anything about the details of that deal? And what does it mean to this case in the bigger picture?

HARRIS: Pat, I can tell you that they`re going back to court. He`s going back to Putnam County circuit court on August 20th to talk about this plea deal. But he`s not going to be able to get the finality or the number of years until after Misty`s sentence. That would be three days later, if she has a trial.

So right now, they have offered him 15 years on three counts, and they`re going to drop two counts of 25-year drug trafficking. So that`s what he faces if he cooperates, if he`s willing to testify against Misty. And the implication, Pat, is that he`s got to help them pressure her and anyone to get information on Haleigh. Even though law enforcement says the two cases are not related, they`re using everything they can to get information.

LALAMA: They`re probably looking for a quid pro quo -- You give me some stuff, we`ll give you some stuff back, correct?

HARRIS: Absolutely. But you know, they`re not bargaining with Ronald now because they want to see just what he`ll give them. In fact, his lawyer, Terry Shoemaker, telling me that this is going to guarantee his cooperation.


LALAMA: Right. Very good. Art Harris, back to you. You happen to know about some pressure being placed on family members behind bars.

HARRIS: Well, I can tell you that before Hank Croslin was arrested, he`s been calling me over the last two weeks. We`ve had long talks about - - about his long drug addiction, about the problems. He`s felt desperate. Anyway, he`d been visiting Tommy in jail and said that on one visit, law enforcement told him that he had better pressure him to give them more information because they did not find the body in the river where he said it had been dumped. And he was looking at possible -- possible lethal injection, that they were going to go for murder charges against him if he didn`t cough up some information. So Hank Croslin is now likely to get another visit from law enforcement, and you can expect Mom, too.

Croslin couple caught in Palatka drug sting

By Kristin Chambers
Published: Tuesday, July 27, 2010 12:45 AM EDT

The parents of Misty Croslin, a key figure in the Haleigh Cummings missing child case, were arrested Friday for purchasing crack cocaine during an undercover drug bust.

Hank Croslin, 40, and Lisa Croslin, 41, of Palatka, were charged with the purchase of crack and tampering with evidence, Assistant Palatka Police Chief James Griffith said.

The tampering charge followed after the couple tried to throw the drugs out their car window when they were apprehended, Griffith said.

Three people at the house, at 809 Bronson St. in Palatka, were arrested for selling crack cocaine following a search warrant, Griffith said. Undercover officers then posed as dealers at the residence and awaited unsuspecting customers.

The Croslins were the first to arrive and were stopped and arrested by police a short distance away, he said.

They were also each on felony probation, and were therefore booked into the Putnam County Jail with no bond.

The couple's son, 23-year-old Hank "Tommy" Croslin Jr., is already being held at the jail on a narcotics charge stemming from a monthlong undercover investigation last January. The family is being held in separate locations, Lt. Johnny Greenwood, spokesman for the Putnam County Sheriff's Office, said Monday.

Misty Croslin, 18, is being held at the St. Johns County Jail on the same drug trafficking charges as her brother.

Ronald Cummings, the 26-year-old father of Haleigh Cummings, and his cousin Hope Sykes, 18, were also arrested in the narcotics investigation last January, and are being held at the Putnam County Jail.

Last week in a tentative plea deal, Cummings agreed to testify against Croslin, who was babysitting Haleigh the night his daughter disappeared.

Investigators have named Croslin a key to finding the missing child.

Other arrests in Friday's investigation include:

n Rodney Graham, 35, for possession of cocaine with intent to sell and possession of drug paraphernalia.

n Koscina Dennis, 33, for possession of cocaine with intent to sell and possession of drug paraphernalia.

n Deloris Major, 34, for possession of cocaine with intent to sell and possession of drug paraphernalia.

n Eddie Brown, 63 of Palatka, for the purchase of cocaine.

n Diane White, 53, of Palatka, for purchase of cocaine and tampering with evidence.

n Leslie Mann, 44, of Daytona Beach, for possession of cocaine and tampering with evidence.

n Viola Major, 34, of Palatka, for an outstanding warrant, resisting an officer without violence and possession of drug paraphernalia.
