Ten people were arrested in Trinity County after authorities raided a marijuana grow in the Trinity Pines area.

The Trinity County Narcotics Task Force raided the grow Thursday October 9. When authorities arrived they found three large plots containing marijuana plants.

Four suspects were quickly detained, but six others grabbed large bags of processed marijuana and tried to escape capture. Agents caught up with the suspects a short time later.

A search of the property yielded 200 pounds of processed marijuana and 65 marijuana plants.

All ten suspects were booked into the Trinity County Jail and released on promise to appear in court.
