AVA, Mo.–Three men from Mountain Grove were arrested in Douglas County Sunday after law enforcement recovered over 200 marijuana plants from a home in the eastern part of the county.

According to a press release, David Rader, 46, Eddie Rader, 51, and David Radar, 19, were each charged with manufacturing of a controlled substance and possession of 35 grams or less. Bond was set at $15,000 cash or surety each.

The Douglas County Sheriff’s Department seized an elaborate hydroponic grow system that took authorities almost eight hours to disassemble. It’s estimated if all plants had been mature the plants would have a value in excess of $600,000.

None of the Raders are currently listed in the Douglas County Jail and no court dates have been set yet
