Three arrested on drug charges after car, foot chase

Following a vehicle and foot pursuit, Canandaigua police arrested three Rochester residents Wednesday as part of a drug investigation.

Clifton Vickers, 29, Marcus A. Thompson, 44, and Robin Campbell, 38, were all charged with third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance. The charge is a class B felony.

The arrests came after an investigation by the Canandaigua Police Department’s detective unit and Ontario County Sheriff’s Office special investigations (narcotics) unit. The sheriff’s office used a K-9 unit in the investigation and arrest.

Vickers, Thompson and Campbell are accused of selling crack cocaine in the city. After police stopped a vehicle they were in on North Bloomfield Road, Canandaigua Police Chief Stephen Hedworth said Vickers — who was driving — sped off as officers approached on foot.
