A Rossville house was being used to grow a quarter-million dollar marijuana operation, authorities say.

Lookout Mountain Drug Task Force agents raided the home off Longview Drive today and found more than 200 plants of all sizes being grown inside, said Interim Commander Patrick Doyle.

Benjamin Valdes, Juan Carlos Valladares and Felix Valdes Jr. were arrested in connection to the operation.

All three men will appear before a Magistrate Judge on Tuesday at 3 p.m. in Walker County.
