LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police say a trap door found in a Louisville woman's home led to a discovery that placed that woman behind bars.

It happened on Saturday, just after 11 p.m., near the corner of N. 18th St. and Columbia St.

According to an arrest report, police went to the home of 40-year-old Chera Deller to execute a search warrant. Police say that, while officers were there, Deller ran to the back of the home.

Police were searching Deller's bedroom when they allegedly found a "trap door" that led to the cellar, where they discovered "a clandestine marijuana grow operation," according to the arrest report.

Police say the marijuana was in the "final stage" of the grow process, and the grow operation was built of concrete blocks and consisted of a "secret room" containing  separate ventilation and electricity, powering grow lamps and dryer motors.

While officers were there, a blue pill allegedly fell from Deller's pants, and upon further search, police allegedly found several other pills in her pants. She also had a chapstick container concealing a package of Suboxone strips, police say.

She was arrested and charged with cultivation of marijuana and possession of a controlled substance.
