Fake ransom note snares alleged pot grower
A Florida man thought he was going to get his marijuana plants back when he responded to a ransom note, according to this report:
"Thanks for the grow! You want them back? Call for the price … we'll talk," read the note left in place of the stash that was growing on a lot near his apartment.
Unfortunately for Steven Alan Locasio, 48, the ransom note was written by detectives, who arrested Locasio when he showed up with $200 in exchange for the safe return of the pot plants.
