Police arrested a man Friday they believe has been manufacturing and selling synthetic drugs to students in Montgomery County.

Law enforcement agencies in the county started an investigation after the death of 16-year-old Montgomery High School student Grant Hobson early last month. Two other students from the school were hospitalized Feb. 20, while one from Willis High School was hospitalized Thursday after taking synthetic LSD.

The suspect, who is not being identified at the request of authorities due to the ongoing investigation, was out on bond for an aggravated robbery charge when he was taken into custody on various drug charges.
