Clay County Sheriff Michelle Cook said drug users and dealers used this treehouse.

The Clay County Sheriff’s Office confirmed Tuesday that it was working with a property owner to dismantle a homeless camp in a wooded area just south of the Duval County line, near the Orange Park Mall.

Aerial video recorded Tuesday from the Sky 4 helicopter showed Sheriff’s Office cruisers with heavy equipment, including a bulldozer on a flatbed and a truck with a claw to pick up debris, along Blanding Boulevard near Wells Road.
This comes after a deputy reached out to the property owner to address a drug and nuisance complaint a couple of months ago, according to a post on Clay County Sheriff Michelle Cook’s Facebook page.
