MIDDLETOWN, OH (FOX19) -

Numerous drug dealers are off Middletown streets after some were sentenced to state and federal prison Thursday.

An investigation led by Middletown police resulted in the arrests of Steve Waldon, Chad Wright, Kareem Randolph and Brian Robbins.  Police called Randolph, Waldon and Write, "career drug dealers."

Waldon was sentenced to seven years in prison -- a combination of state and federal convictions -- after being arrested for felony 2 drug abuse: heroin and trafficking in heroin.  

Police said Waldon was driving an SUV on Jan. 1, when he was shot several times and his passenger, Teresa Shields, was murdered in the front seat.

The case remains unsolved.  Detectives are investigating whether Waldon's drug dealing is related to Shield's murder.  

Wright was arrested for having about 175 grams of crack cocaine and three handguns, along with $3,600 in cash, police said.  He was sentenced to four years in prison after pleading guilty to felony 2 drug abuse: crack cocaine. 

Randolph was found with a large quantity or heroin and a loaded handgun. He is awaiting sentencing. 

Robbins was arrested for possessing 52 grams of crack cocaine, 31 grams of heroin and had $2,800 on him at the time, police said. He was sentenced to four years in prison.
