    Not a whole bunch of cocaine but then again, how much would it take to get a family member hooked on it. If he is capable of this amount he could be capable of much more.

    Yeah, big time dealer no doubt...

    $830 worth of drugs after the cops inflate the street value is like $100 worth at the most.

    Got him a $100,000 bail though...ouch...
