Default retrieving a value from data bound to a repeater

I have a repeater with some data bound to it...this repeater has 2 controls in it. The bound data for the repeater would look something like this

Name ID
New 16
Old 24
Sold 18

What I need to do in my code behind is grab the "ID" value for each row; put that value into a variable; retrieve some data; and bind it to a drop down. My question is how do I retrieve the "ID" value from the data that is bound to the repeater?

So something like

                RepeaterItem r = e.Item;

                foreach(Control c in r.Controls)
                   int ID = "value from the ID column that is bound to the repeater control" (How do I get this value???)

                    if(c is System.Web.UI.WebControls.DropDownList)
                        ((DropDownList) c).DataSource =
                            source.table.Select("iD = 221"); <<<<(REPLACE "iD=221" WITH VARIABLE VALUE "ID")
                        ((DropDownList) c).DataMember = "value";
                        ((DropDownList) c).DataTextField = "value";
                        ((DropDownList) c).DataBind();
