PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla., April 6 (UPI) -- Port St. Lucie, Fla., police said a man walked into their headquarters with 12 marijuana plants and said "he wanted to turn himself in to do the right thing."

The Port St. Lucie police report said Michael Cabral, 34, brought the plants along with some seeds and drug paraphernalia to the station Monday and said "he wanted to turn himself in to do the right thing," WPBF-TV, West Palm Beach, reported Friday.

Police said they tested the plants and seeds to confirm they were marijuana. Cabral, who said he grew the plants for his own personal use, was charged with marijuana cultivation and taken to the St. Lucie County Jail.
