Deputies detained nine people Tuesday night, all accused of trespassing in the Santa Clara River wash near a popular biking trail in Canyon Country. About 8 p.m., deputies with the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station were dispatched to reports of a group of young people congregated near the Santa Clara River Trail, near Camp Plenty Road. “We detained nine people for trespassing,” Lt. Leo Bauer said. The detainees — eight men and one woman, all in their early 20’s — were given a citation to appear in court on the misdemeanor offense. “They were given citations and released,” he said. The Santa Clara River Trail is popular among bicyclists and pedestrians. jholt@signalscv.com 287-5527 On Twitter @jamesarthurholt
