The Athens County Sheriff's Office is currently conducting "Operation Busted Balloon," which has taken more than 20 individuals into custody on drug-related charges-including Morgan County Jail escapee Christopher Lee Clark.

It says it has been working with many local, state, and federal authorities over the past several months once the Sheriff's Office became aware that several of its heroin investigations stemmed from Columbus.

The Sheriff's Office says it has seized at least 242 balloons of herion, marijuana, pills, and other paraphernalia.

The biggest bust seems to have taken place on October 21st when 16 individuals, including Clark, were arrested.

Operation Busted Balloon started back in May.
