School bus driver indicted for child porn

Posted: Updated:
RED BANK, TN (WRCB) -

Anthony Thomas Tollis, 56, was arrested on Thursday, after a grand jury indicted him on two counts of aggravated sexual exploitation of a minor and one count of sexual exploitation of a minor.

According to Red Bank Police Chief Tim Christol, Red Bank police received a tip that Tollis had child pornography on his computer. They obtained a warrant for the computer and discovered files containing child pornography.

Christol says the investigation shows Tollis is a bus driver, contracted through Durham School Services.

Channel 3 confirmed Tollis is an employee of Durham School Services and was placed on leave on Tuesday.

Christol says it's concerning that this is the second driver arrested in the last month in connection with a crime against children.

“It's scary to think we have people charged with the care of children and yet they're involved in outrageous behavior involving children,” Christol told Channel 3.

Channel 3 reported earlier this month the arrest of 34-year-old Alexander Rodriquez, who is accused of raping a 15-year-old girl who rode his bus. Rodriquez was also a Durham employee.
