Police say a taxi was used to transport drugs, a dealer, and several customers in the Village of Medina in Orleans County.

Two people are now in police custody, and more arrests are pending.

The suspected dealer, identified as 40-year-old Reginald Kendrick, is now facing a number of felony drug charges. The taxi driver, 42-year-old Roy Bishop, is also facing a slew of charges.

Police say the taxi was used to sell suspected crack cocaine. They say it was also used to take customers to the dealer, and the dealer to his customers.

Police say the taxi company, Medina Transport, did not know one of its cabs was being used for any kind of criminal activity.
