Florida Deputies Nab Grow House Suspects With Fake Ransom Note

Police officers in a southern Florida town found a unique way to arrest a man who is accused of operating a marijuana grow house. The deputies seized six large marijuana plants and then left a ransom note for the grower saying they had his plants and the suspect needed to call the phone number to get them back.

According to a news release and a story on TBO.com, Steven Alan Locasio called the officers and offered $200 to get his drugs back. Locasio agreed to the exchange and after he handed the money over to the police he was arrested on drug charges.
