A man and woman sought on separate drug charges were arrested after deputies received a tip they were living on Herman Ladner Road, Sheriff Troy Peterson said.

Brandy Renee Franko, 38, was wanted on a charge of sale of a synthetic narcotic.

Randy Adam Ordoyne Sr. was wanted for failing to appear in court on a felony drug-possession charge. He was held with no bond pending an appearance in Harrison County Circuit Court.

Ordoyne was indicted on a meth-possession charge in 2014 from a 2011 arrest. He also had been convicted on a precursor charge from an arrest in 2009. A precursor charge involves chemicals or other items used in the manufacture of meth.

They were arrested Sunday night and were booked at the county jail.

Franko was held on a $10,000 bond. She also was arrested on a misdemeanor paraphernalia charge from 2015 and on a court order from another misdemeanor from 2011, the jail docket shows.
