Connecticut State Police reported today (Jan. 24, 2013) that they are investigating a report of a bullet found on a school bus in Stafford.

This is the second such incident this week. On Tuesday, Jan. 22, a bullet was found by a janitor inside an Enfield elementary school, the Hazardville Memorial School.

Police say that at about 8:30 a.m., Troop C received a report from the First Student School Bus Company Middle River Road in Stafford that a bullet had been found by a bus driver who had completed his school bus runs and was conducting a final inspection of his bus.

The driver found a single bullet on a seat.

State Troopers were sent to the bus company and to Stafford’s high school, middle school and elementary schools and to St. Edward’s School.

The bullet was seized and the school bus runs were documented, including the names of all students who would have been on this specific bus this morning.

Troopers and State Police K-9 Teams who responded to all of the Stafford schools conducted searches of each facility and interviewed the students who were on the bus where the bullet was found.

The student body at each school was locked in place in the building as State Police searches were conducted.

School Officials also notified parents of this incident via telephone messages.

Nothing was found at any of the schools. Police state, “No additional bullets or similar contraband were discovered.”

All lockdowns and searches by Troopers were completed by about 11:45 a.m.

The lockdown of each school was lifted as the searches were completed.

The Stafford Resident State Trooper is continuing this investigation in an effort to determine the origin of the bullet found on the school bus.
