Stratford school bus driver facing child porn charges

A school bus driver in Stratford is accused of having a “large number” of child porn pictures and videos, police say.
John Kenneth Stone, 76, was arrested Thursday and charged with possession of child pornography in the first degree.
Police say they first became aware that Stone may be in possession of child porn after the National Center for Missing Exploited Children filed a complaint about Stone with the Stratford Police Department in February, police say.
Investigators conducted a search warrant at Stone's home and found a "large number" of images and videos identified as child pornography on a laptop inside the house.
The Durham Bus Co., where Stone was employed, released a statement saying, "We suspended Stone while the police investigation was ongoing. Today, we can confirm that he has been terminated and is no longer an employee."
Stone is due in court Friday after he posted a $250,000 bond.
