BOISE, Idaho (AP) -- A southwestern Idaho man who police say grew 70 marijuana plants in his home has been taken into custody on suspicion of felony manufacturing and trafficking of a controlled substance as well as other charges.

Ada County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Andrea Dearden says 26-year-old Tyler C. Knarr of Eagle was taken into custody Saturday after police searched a trailer.

Police were attracted to the trailer after an officer attempting a traffic stop followed Knarr to the trailer where a passenger jumped from the vehicle and ran into the trailer. That man hasn't been located.

Police say Knarr is wanted on a felony arrest warrant in Deschutes County, Ore., on a charge of manufacturing and delivery of marijuana.

He's being held at the Ada County Jail in Boise.
