Three men listed as transients from Santa Clarita have been arrested on suspicion of running a pot-growing operation in the hills near Templin Highway,

The three were arrested at a marijuana growing operation off Templin Highway, said Lt. Brenda Cambra, who heads the detective section at the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station. Templin Highway is located north of Castaic and crosses Interstate 5.

Members of the Marijuana Eradication Team out of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department disrupted the operation Friday morning, Cambra said Monday.

The deputies took three young men into custody, and each was being held on $50,000 bail.

They are: Adrinn Esparza-Haro, 21, described as unemployed; and two men identified as gardeners by occupation: Manuel Mendoz, 21, and Ramiro Delgado-Perez, 22.

Each was charged with felony counts of unlawfully planting and/or cultivating marijuana.
