ST. CLOUD – Two men are in jail after calling a police officer to buy pot.  St. Cloud police say the would-be drug buyer dialed the wrong number, and instead of reaching his dealer, called a uniformed police officer while he was sitting in his squad car.

The incident happened at about 11:30 last (Sunday) night.

The officer received multiple calls from the suspect, in an attempt to meet and buy one pound of marijuana.  Uniformed officers met the suspect in the 1100 block of 15th Avenue South.

Arrested were 21-year-old Kewon Johnson of St. Cloud and 27-year-old Steven Henricks Junior of Shoreview.  Officers recovered $3,060 of counterfeit $20 bills and small amounts of marijuana.
