Police in Florida lured a suspected marijuana grower into turning himself in by leaving a ransom note in place of six seized pot plants.

The police in Monroe County said detectives discovered the plants in a wooded lot and confiscated them.

They left a phone number on a note that read: "Thanks for the grow! You want them back? Call for the price."

Steven Alan Locasio called the number about 10 minutes later.

Locasio offered 200 dollars (£125) for the plants, and detectives agreed to meet him for an exchange.

Locasio was later arrested and charged.
