ST. CLOUD (WCCO) — Two men were arrested in St. Cloud after police say they dialed the wrong number and attempted to buy a pound of marijuana from a police officer.

According to St. Cloud Police, a uniformed St. Cloud patrol officer received the call at 11:33 p.m. Sunday. After the officer received multiple phone calls from the suspect, a meeting was arranged on the 1100 block of 15th Avenue South.

Police say the men fled when they met with uniformed officers, but were quickly apprehended and taken into custody. The two men have been identified by police as 21-year-old Kewon Donte Johnson of St. Cloud and 27-year-old Steven Ray Hendricks.

During the investigation, one of the men allegedly attempted to get rid of items in his possession. Police then recovered $3,060 of counterfeit $20 bills and small amounts of marijuana from the men, according to police.

Both men are being held in Stearns County Jail and could face charges for felony possession of counterfeit currency.
