School Bus Driver From Stratford Accused of Being in Possession of Child Pornography

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.
