A La Vergne man is facing felony charges after police found a complex marijuana grow operation in his home.

A feud between neighbors brought police to a home on Poplar Hollow Road on Saturday.

Hank Stanfield told News 2 he has lived next door to Calvin Golter, 48, for four years.

He said there's been bad blood between the two neighbors, landing them in civil court multiple times.

"His other hobby seemed to be harassing and attacking my family," said Stanfield.

He explained that Golter called police Saturday morning claiming there was damage to a bird feeder in his yard.

When authorities arrived, Stanfield had a tip for them.

"And I said, ‘I've heard a rumor that he's been growing marijuana in his mud room,'' he told News 2.

Officers asked permission to search Golter's home, but he refused.

After a drug dog reportedly reacted to an odor of marijuana, police obtained a search warrant.

Authorities found at least 300 marijuana plants growing in multiple rooms of the home.

The estimated street value of the seizure is upwards of $800,000.

Golter is charged with maintaining a dwelling for the purpose of controlled substances and manufacturing controlled substances for resale and possession of drug paraphernalia.
