Police say Eugene "Bubba" Ryals was the mastermind behind sales of prescription drugs like oxycodone and methadone - setting up shop out of his home in Marion county and sending people to buy drugs in Tampa. He made over $96,000 in just 6 weeks. He's in the Marion county jail - with bond set at over $5 million dollars.
