Four suspected marijuana patch growers were arrested after they ran from law enforcement officers in southern Sacramento County.
State Department of Justice marijuana investigation team agents conducting surveillance came upon the seven suspects who fled from them this morning near Interstate 5 and Hood-Franklin Road.
Four of the suspects were caught. The Sacramento Sheriff's Department aided the DOJ in finding the other three.
Agents found 1,000 plants, processed marijuana and two shotguns, a department spokeswoman said.
