FRANKLIN, Ky. -- Police say the pot-growing operation they found in Kentucky was "highly sophisticated."
They said the whole operation was concealed underground. To get to it, you had to use an elevator in a shower stall inside a barn.
State police, national guardsmen and Drug Enforcement Administration officers said they found 774 marijuana plants growing there this week. The street value of the pot is estimated at more than $3 million.
The owner of the barn near the Tennessee border was arrested, and could face life in prison if convicted. Another man who was also arrested could get 40 years.
