A father and one of his two sons were arrested for drug possession after Lodi police said they found nearly 100 pills and $5,000 in drug sale money at their home.

Lodi police waited for nearly three hours on and around the 100 block of Adobe Court before entering the home of David Preszler Sr. and his two sons, David Jr. and Sean.

Police had been notified by an undisclosed source that Sean Preszler, 23, was selling oxycodone, a heavy-duty pain relief medication, out of the house, according to Sgt. Bill Alexander.

Police served a search warrant that allowed them to search the home as well as Sean Preszler and his car, according to Detective Nic Rafiq.

During the search of the home, detectives found roughly 100 oxycodone pills as well as approximately $5,000 in money believed to be from drug sales, Rafiq said.

Police arrested Sean Preszler and he faces charges of possession of a narcotic, sales of a narcotic, and possession of a drug without a prescription. He also had three outstanding warrants, two from San Joaquin County and one from Santa Cruz County.

David Preszler Jr., 25, had an outstanding warrant from Los Angeles County for a traffic violation, Rafiq said. He was later released with a citation.

David Preszler Sr., 62, was arrested for possession of hydrochloride pills without a prescription.

According to Rafiq, oxycodone pills sell for between $17 and $20 per 30 mg pill on the street. Oxycodone is more available than oxycontin, a highly potent narcotic that is rarely found on the street because it is so expensive.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
