Baker Pleads Guilty to Manufacturing Meth
A Quincy woman has plead guilty to manufacturing methamphetamine in a home with her two small children present. 33-year-old April Baker entered the plea to unlawful meth-related child endangerment on Thursday.
Baker was arrested in September, along with Larry A. Maggart, age 38 and Robert M. Miller, age 51, after a search warrant was served at a residence on North 11th in Quincy.
Two children present in the residence during the arrests were turned over to a family member, and agents reported the incident to the Department of Children and Family Services.
Illinois State Police Master Sergeant Patrick Frazier reported that agents seized a shake and bake methamphetamine lab, processed methamphetamine, numerous components used in the meth manufacturing process, cannabis, and drug paraphernalia. The Illinois State Police Meth Response Team was utilized in disposing of the hazardous chemicals associated with the lab.
Baker is scheduled to be sentenced in February.
