IZARD COUNTY, AR (KAIT) – Two people on the run for several weeks were arrested in the Ozark, Missouri area.

34-year-old Ricky Ray Lake and 43-year-old Tanya Turner were taken into custody in two separate arrests last week.

Lake had a felony warrant for failure to appear in the Izard County Circuit Court to answer charges possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and possession of drug paraphernalia. Lake was transported to the Izard County Detention Facility where he is being held on a $10,000 cash bond.

Sheriff Tate Lawrence said that Lake was notorious for being in and out of the court system in the past few years.

Tanya Turner was arrested on Thursday and transported to the same Detention Facility. She had charges of failure to appear in court relating in charges for possession of a firearm.

Sheriff Lawrence says that Turner is known to run alongside with Ricky Lake and both have been arrested in the past in the same place.

Turner has also had a history of numerous encounters with law enforcement. She is being held with a $10,000 bond.

 

They are both Melbourne natives.
