LA VERGNE, Tenn. – Officials uncovered a grow house operation in La Vergne on Saturday where more than 300 marijuana plants were being kept.

Officials said 48-year-old Calvin Golter had more than likely been growing those plants inside his garage on Polar Hollow Road for years.

"If you've got all of that illegal activity going on at your house you think you'd just keep your head down and not try to start all of this stuff with the neighbors he's being doing," explained Adam Marlin, who lives next door.

Marlin saif he's had issues with Calvin Gotler in the past-- incidents that range from harrasment to having eggs thrown at his home.

"There are eggs he's been throwing at the house from his back deck. We put up cameras all over the house just trying to catch him," he added.

Investigators on the scene said officers responded to the home as a disturbance call involving two neighbors in an argument. Adam Marlin said it was actually Golter who called authorities accusing him and his family of shooting holes into a bird feeder, but when authorities arrived they smelled a large odor of marijuana coming from the home.

"The cops had already smelled it at his house or thought they did so between having smelled it and now hearing a rumor he was growing it, they were able to get a warrant," he said.

Golter was released from the Rutherford County jail, but faces serious charges related to the incident. 

 

Police said that his grow operation was worth more than $800,000.
