ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) — Two men are in jail after a would-be drug buyer got a wrong number and tried to buy marijuana — from a St. Cloud policeman.

Police say instead of reaching his dealer, the caller reached a uniformed officer who was sitting in his squad car.

WJON-AM reports it happened around 11:30 p.m. Sunday. The officer got multiple calls from the suspect who was trying to meet and buy a pound of marijuana.

Officers arranged a meeting and arrested a 21-year-old St. Cloud man and a 27-year-old man from Shoreview. Police also seized about $3,000 of counterfeit $20 bills and small amounts of marijuana.
