Detective Bobby Price (1952-1984) was an officer with the Metro-Dade Police Department, working undercover in the Organized Crime Bureau, Vice Division. He was the partner of Detective Jake Esteban.

While attempting to set up a drug deal, Price and Esteban were ambushed by Desmond Maxwell's rip-off crew -- Bobby was killed almost instantly.

Biography

Price and Esteban were a pair of up-and-coming, ambitious young Detectives at OCB, intent on making as many busts as possible. They liked to move fast on cases, teaming up as "Jumpin' Jack Flash" and "Captain Go Fast". Crockett served as a mentor of sorts to the young Detectives, helping them along and offering advice on how to succeed (and stay alive) undercover.

In 1984, the two young Vice cops made a $100 bet they would make more busts in a month than Crockett and his new partner Ricardo "Rico" Tubbs, which they accepted. Price and Esteban later set up a meet with a group of drug dealers, refusing backup as it was only a "preliminary meet". However, the deal was ambushed by Desmond Maxwell and his rip-off crew, the eleventh deal they had hit in recent weeks. Both cops were shot -- Price died instantly, while Esteban was seriously wounded but survived. Price left behind a widow.
