May 28, 2019

STRATFORD — A 76-year-old school bus driver was arrested last week and charged with possession of child pornography.

According to a release, the Stratford Police Department received a child pornography complaint in February from the National Center for Missing Exploited Children. An investigation led to the identification of John Kenneth Stone, a school bus driver employed by Durham Bus Services.

Authorities said they seized a laptop from Stone’s home, and that forensic analysis discovered a large number of images and videos identified as child pornography.

Stone was taken into custody Thursday. He posted a $250,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in court Friday.
