GENEVA — City police said tips from several residents led to the arrest of two people in a drug bust Wednesday morning at the Garden Apartments.

Christopher Radcliffe, 22, of Rochester, was charged with third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance, a class B felony.

Tina VanDuyne, 35, of 500 Pulteney St., Apt. 28, was charged with first-degree criminal nuisance, a class E felony.

Geneva Police Department Lt. Eric Heieck said members of the department’s Drug Enforcement Unit, road patrol officers and the Ontario County Emergency Response Team took part in the raid. A K-9 unit was also used.

Police got a search warrant for VanDuyne’s apartment  after an investigation into the sale of crack cocaine there. Heieck said the drug unit received tips from several residents in the area due to the high volume of vehicle and pedestrian traffic to and from the apartment.

“The actions of several concerned citizens led to this arrest and are to be commended for their input and successful result,” Heieck said.

Police said VanDuyne was allowing Radcliffe to sell drugs from her apartment. An amount of cocaine and money were confiscated in the raid.

Anyone with information on the crime or other crimes is asked to call 911, the Geneva PD at 789-1111 or the department’s detective bureau at 828-6781. People can also relay information by e-mail to the Geneva PD’s crime tip service at
