The driver, Rodney L. Scales, 30, of Rochester, was arrested and charged with four counts of third degree criminal sale of a controlled substance and five counts of third degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.

Scales was arraigned in the Town of Gaines Court and committed to Orleans County Jail without bail due to his previous criminal history. He is scheduled to appear in court Jan. 10.
