Florida Police Pull Prank on Suspected Marijuana Grower

tokejokeFlorida Police received a tip about a small marijuana grow in a vacant wooded lot in the Florida Keys. With nobody to tie to the grow, police investigators took the plants and half jokingly decided to leave a ransom note in a last ditch effort to make an arrest.

“Thanks for the grow! You want them back? Call for the price [phone number]. We’ll talk.”

The suspected grower, Steven Locascio, 48, discovered his plants missing and found the note only minutes after investigators left the scene.  He promptly called the number hoping to negotiate the return of his six 6-foot-tall plants. After speaking with an undercover detective, Locascio agreeed to meet and pay a $200 ransom to get his plants back. After handing over the cash, he was arrested.

Police later served a search warrant on Locascio’s home where they found 20 smaller plants and 4 pounds of harvested marijuana. Locascio and his wife, Christine Locascio, 50, were both charged with cultivation of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and sale of marijuana.

    I live in Florida so let me be the first to tell you that Florida law enforcement is the most pointless and pathetic one around. They spend all this money to bring down smokers and don’t do jack shit about the growing meth and coke problem. They need to get their fucking head out of their asses and do something worth while with their time and money.

    First off this is bullshit, Im not at all on the cops side, nobody should be arrested or jailed for anything to do with marijuana. But you have to see how dumb this guy must have been to call the number. I’m sorry but if someone found the plants and liked herb, then they would have kept it and smoked that shit up. And if they dont smoke, then they would call the cops and feel good about themselves. So he should have known, if someone found it and didnt keep it on the quiet end, then its a set up.
