Hartford police reported today that they have charged a former Hartford Public Schools employee with stealing $114,000 from the Bulkeley High School student activity fund.

Police say they have charged Jesse L. Henderson, 41, of 138 Palm St., Hartford, with larceny in the first degree in connection with the misappropriation after a lengthy investigation prompted by a tip in January from H. Patrick Campbell, Hartford’s chief auditor.

Police said Henderson was taken into custody today at his place of employment in Cheshire.  He was released on a $20,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in Hartford Superior Court on October 3.
