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.

    The real people passing the counterfeit currency are Ben Bernanke and his money presses at the Federal Reserve as ”Federal” as Federal Express. More non-criminals being locked up for wanting to buy some marijuana which is less harmful than alcohol. Real big time criminals here and the poor guys can’t counterfeit…only the government can do that because they are sanctioned. I am glad I no longer live in the US and moved to Northwestern Europe.

    How did these 2 get caught on foot? Cops wearing street shoes, hats, 40# of ammo, guns and night sticks caught these guys on foot! Find out who the cops were and send them over to Winter Park!

    1. obvious says:

      It’s because they wear their pants around their knee caps.

    Ah – two more splendid candidates for “Criminal Mastermind of the Decade”

  15. Pass the Weed Dude says:

    I would love to see what the counterfeit $20 bills looked like……probably Monopoly money…….Some criminals are actually intelligent, these two aren’t.

  16. Fact says:

    I bet these 2 guys are the product of no father, and im sure the turds they have conceived are fatherless also.

    Man, St. Cloud is sure going to hell in a hurry. I remember about 10 years ago it was called one of the best cities to live in in the NATION. Now look at it. One by one, nice Minnesota towns are being trashed, and nobody seems to know what to do.

    1. back to Jake says:

      Jake, I agree completely, I have an idea it has a whole lot to do with handouts and not having to work for what you get. My ancestors came to America more than 100 years ago and would roll over in their graves if they knew what our great country is doing to enable people and give them the feeling they are intitled to get something for nothing at every turn. It is a bit unusual too that this community once dubbed “White Cloud” is far from that now. When we need to go to the clinic it is very evident. I feel like I’m in a different community altogether.
