A marijuana-laced cookie landed a Woodbury high school student in the hospital, according to state police.

Troopers said they arrested Ronald Hoyt, 49, and three teens following the incident.

They said they first responded to a call about medical complications on Oct. 23. The unidentified 18-year-old student began having the complications while at Nonnewaug High School.

Troopers said the reason was because she ate the pot-infused cookie.

Later, investigators said they learned that the student bought the cookie for $20 through a 17-year-old classmate, who in turn, got it from a second 17-year-old student on the same day.

The 18-year-old student was transported to Waterbury Hospital for evaluation.

The 17-year-old who sold the cookie was found to be at 25 Park Ln. in Woodbury. Woodbury police responded and found that's where students congregated after school.

A search warrant executed on the property found 2.2 pounds of marijuana, smoking pipes, scales, packaging paraphernalia, $7,444 in cash, two small explosive devices and 44 firearms.

Hoyt was found to be the owner of the property. He was arrested along with three 17-year-old boys.

Hoyt was charged with possession of marijuana, possession with intent to sell, possession of drug paraphernalia and two counts of illegal possession of explosives.

His bond was set at $10,000 and given a court date of Nov. 12.

The school superintendent said information was not available due to student confidentiality.

The juveniles also faced various drug charges. They are due in juvenile court on Nov. 5.

The investigation is ongoing at this time.
