The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office and the city of Jacksonville's Drug Abatement Response Team raided Shannon Ridge Apartments eventually condemning more than 60 apartment units.
Code enforcement inspectors found several issues with the apartment complex including mold, infestation of roaches, improper or illegal wiring, no smoke detectors, and "structures unfit for human habitation."
Several families gathered their belongings Tuesday, but former residents say they have no place to go.
The owner of the apartment complex refused to speak about code violations.
The city said the apartments have been a problem for years. The Sheriff's Office said last year it received nearly 600 complaints about the complex.
The city said 36 households sought temporary assistance from the city, and a handful of people stayed Tuesday night at a Red Cross shelter.
