Ontario – On Nov. 8, 2014, investigators from the Ontario Police Department received information that one of their officers, Tyler Stone, 30, of Rancho Cucamonga, had an inappropriate relationship with a juvenile female. The Sheriff’s Department immediately placed Stone on administrative leave, and on Dec. 9, 2014, began an investigation into possible criminal acts.
Detectives from the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department (SBSD) Crimes Against Children Detail assumed the investigation and discovered Stone met the victim while he was on duty and later developed a sexual relationship with her. The illegal acts occurred in the city of Ontario and at Stone’s residence in the city of Rancho Cucamonga.
On Dec. 22, 2014, Stone resigned from the Ontario Police Department.
According to SBSD, the District Attorney’s Office issued a warrant on Feb. 19 for Stone’s arrest for two counts of Oral Copulation of a Minor, one count of Unlawful Sex with a Minor, and one count of Annoying/Molesting a Child.
Stone turned himself in on the evening of Feb. 19, and was booked at the West Valley Detention Center. His bail was set at $150,000. Stone posted bail and was released from custody. His arraignment date has not been set.
