LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – When police served a search warrant at a home in Louisville's Portland neighborhood they found a sophisticated marijuana growing operation in the basement of the home.

As officers served the warrant, the resident of the home, Chera Renee Deller, ran to the rear of the residence. When officers searched the home they found a trap door in a rear bedroom that led to the basement.

In the basement, police said they found marijuana in the final stages of growth in a room and built of concrete. The room had its own ventilation system and electricity to power grow lights and dryer motors.

Deller is charged with cultivating marijuana and two counts of possession of controlled substances.
