    Joshua Walker-Thomas was arrested after police said he distributed pot brownies at the Metropolitan Learning Center.

    Bloomfield police arrested a second student suspected of distributing marijuana-laced brownies to peers at the second Metropolitan Learning Center.

    Student Joshua Walker-Thomas, of Bloomfield, turned himself into police and was arraigned at Hartford Superior Court on July 3 on a charge of risk of injury to a minor, a felony.

    Walker-Thomas is the second teen to be arrested in connection with the incident. A 16-year-old girl was also charged late last month.

    He has not pleaded yet in the case and is scheduled to appear in court again on Aug. 5. Walker-Thomas was released from custody on a promise to appear in court.

    The pot brownies reportedly sent a 15-year-old boy to the hospital in a "stupor state" on June 25, according to police.

    The Capitol Region Education Council  (CREC) operates the Metropolitan Learning Center.
