Bulloch County Sheriff's Office
investigators were contacted by Bulloch County Board of Education
transportation supervisors on Thursday regarding incidents involving a school
bus running its morning route on U.S. 80W.
The school supervisor indicated that a
student riding the bus observed a white male driving a light gray Chevrolet
Suburban pull up next to the bus as it loaded students and expose himself.
The student also observed the white male
perform other lewd acts.
The student, who was over the age of 17,
provided a detailed description of both the suspect and vehicle.
Investigators set up surveillance and
undercover BCSO investigators noticed a Chevrolet Suburban exactly like the one
described begin to trail the bus as it approached Statesboro.
As the vehicle pulled up behind the bus,
investigators initiated a traffic stop. The driver, identified as James Kelley
Catron, 39, was found to be in the process of exposing himself.
The students on the bus were not aware of
Catron's actions and the bus proceeded from the location.
Catron was transported to the Bulloch
County Jail and charged with three counts of public indecency.
In 2011 Catron was convicted of public
indecency in Bulloch County State Court for a similar incident. He was also
incarcerated in 1998 for cruelty to a child and a hold has been placed on his
release by State Probation.
