    Conn. School Bus Driver Facing Child Porn Charges
    Stratford Police

    Police have arrested a school bus driver from Stratford who is accused of being in possession of child pornography.

    Detectives at Stratford Police Department received a child pornography complaint from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in February.

    According to police, detectives conducted an investigation and identified 76-year-old John Kenneth Stone, who is employed as a school bus driver with the Durham Bus Services.

    Detectives executed a search warrant at Stone's home in Stratford and authorities said they seized a laptop computer.

    A forensic analysis of the computer found a large number of what detectives said were images and videos of child pornography.

    On Thursday, Stone was taken into custody and charged with possession of child pornography.

    He posted a $250,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in court on Friday.

    Durham Bus Services confirmed that Stone was suspended during the investigation and has since been terminated.
