JASPER — A local school bus driver’s diligence led to a parole warrant arrest Monday afternoon.
A bus driver contacted the Jasper Police Department at 4 p.m. because she was unable to locate the parents of one of the students she was to drop off. Police said the bus driver brought the student to the police station.
After a few minutes, police said, the parents were contacted, advised of their child’s whereabouts and told a pickup could be made at the police station.
After they arrived, police said, the parents were identified and authorities learned Jason L. Swinburne, 39, 501 W. Village Court, was found to have an active parole warrant through Ohio.
Swinburne was taken into custody and booked into the Dubois County Security Center at 5:17 p.m.
Jasper police said he is awaiting extradition back to Ohio.
The eight-year-old juvenile was released to the mother.
