MANNSVILLE, Okla. (AP) – Johnston County authorities say three men were arrested after investigators found more than one ton of marijuana growing at a ranch near Mannsville.

Sheriff Jon Smith says trespassers on the property called authorities about the operation and deputies arrived Saturday to find four men at a campsite.

Smith said three of the men were arrested while the fourth managed to escape. Smith said it appears the men had been at the site since spring.
