ACCORDING TO THE TRINITY JOURNAL:

“Law enforcement agencies changed tactics last week in their battle to keep Mexican drug trafficking organizations from growing marijuana on public lands in Trinity County.
Officers in an aircraft had spotted marijuana gardens being prepared in the Zenia area months ago, but did not fly over again. Then last week officers hiked in on foot and arrested two men working in one of the gardens–with weapons close at hand.
Officers raided four sites on U.S. Forest Service land with a total of 27,300 marijuana plants ranging in size from 6 inches to 3 1/2 feet tall.
Taking part in the three-day operation were officers of the Trinity County Sheriff’s Department, U.S. Forest Service, and state Department of Fish and Game.
Often these operations net a lot of plants but no suspects because the growers are scared away by the helicopters. The goal in this case was to apprehend the growers, said Omar Brown, a Trinity County narcotics officer. The two men who were arrested were found in one of the gardens, which had 8,000 plants.
“We snuck in on them. They were tending the plants,” Omar Brown said
