STRATFORD, Conn. (AP) - A Connecticut school bus driver has been charged with buying and selling heroin while driving his bus.

Twenty-nine-year-old Garfield Howell was charged Thursday with selling narcotics and risk of injury to a minor. Police say he lives in Stratford but drives a school bus in Bridgeport.

Stratford police say no children were on the bus when he was dropping off or picking up drugs.
