Shouldn't call the police for illegal drugs

ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) - October 4, 2011

Police in St. Cloud, Minnesota, charge a man looking to buy weed called an on-duty officer by mistake.

A local radio station reports the uniformed officer was in his squad car when he got multiple calls.

Authorities say the man who was dialing the wrong number was trying to set up a deal to buy a pound of marijuana.

Officers arranged a meeting and busted two men in their 20s.

Police also report seizing about $3,000 in counterfeit $20 bills.
