NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Police have arrested a man who was connected to the search for Haleigh Cummings on unrelated charges.

Acting on a tip, Nashville Metro Police searched the home of Joe Overstreet on Antioch Pike Sunday afternoon. A sergeant at the home said officers found what they believe to be stolen goods and narcotics. Officers detained and questioned two men at the home.

Overstreet was arrested and charged with manufacturing marijuana, a felony; and unlawful use of drug paraphernalia, a misdemeanor.

In April, Florida investigators questioned Overstreet in a renewed search for clues in the disappearance of Haleigh Cummings. Overstreet denied he played a part in the girl's disappearance.

Overstreet, is the cousin of Misty Croslin who was caring for Haleigh in February 2009 when the little girl vanished, according to investigators. Overstreet also was visiting the family in Putnam County at the time of Haleigh's disappearance., NBC
