The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office announced Thursday afternoon that it has made dozens of drug arrests in the Oceanway area.
Operation Lock Down O-Town led to half-dozen children being transferred to the custody of Florida Department of Children and Families.
The operation, which started in October and ended in January, targeted the Oceanway area. Investigators say this was not a drug ring but more of a geographic-based operation.
Sixty people were arrested on charges such as possession of meth, possession of crack, possession of OxyContin and possession of marijuana.
Eleven people are still at large and five vehicles were seized along with $9,000 in cash. One active meth lab was closed.
