An Evansville man is expected in court after police found an extensive marijuana growing operation in his home.

Officers say they found pot growing in the basement of 34-year-old Andrew Fry's home on Jefferson Avenue.

He's charged with dealing marijuana.

Investigators say someone tipped off Child Protective Services.

They say Fry has two young children that live in the home along with his wife.

Officers say they removed 27 marijuana plants and 26 clone plants.

We're told each "grow room" had artificial lights on a timer and a watering system, which police say makes the operation more sophisticated.
