Price, Perez, the Starks brothers, and Radank have extensive felony arrest records from other counties. The Starks brothers have been arrested multiple times in Marion County for cocaine distribution throughout Marion Oaks. A search of court records did not return any prior arrests for Pressley.

Sources said the group has also been known to host illegal poker games with other associates.

In addition to the thousands of dollars the dealers were making by selling drugs, they were also collecting welfare benefits.

Price told investigators that he began selling drugs because he could not find a job and he needed bill money.

    The excuse of not being able to find a job is the lamest one out there, maybe a haircut, shave, work clothing and getting those damn gold teeth out of your mouth might make you employable. These thugs don’t want a job, they want easy, fast and free money. Throw his butt in jail
