LAKELAND -- The Lanier County Sheriff's Department conducted its biggest drug sweep in the county's history over the weekend.

B.J. Davis, investigator with the sheriff's department, said that 31 warrants had been issued and 27 of those resulted in arrests. Charges include sale of crack cocaine and conspiracy to commit a crime.

Between 3 a.m. and daylight Monday, three of those arrested escaped from the Clinch County Jail and were still being sought Monday afternoon. The three reportedly removed a light fixture and escaped through the ceiling, Davis said.
