A search warrant served by West Central Illinois Task Force and the Adams
County Sheriffs Office at 1112 N. 8th Street in Quincy lead to the arrest
of four Quincy residents Monday morning.

Agents seized methamphetamine, cannabis, firearms and drug paraphernalia
during the search.

Melissa K. Tallcott, age 32, and Marilyn K. Brewer, age 28 were both
arrested on charges of Unlawful Possession of Methamphetamine. Richard N.
Kramer, age 54 was arrested for Unlawful Possession of Firearms by a Felon
and Unlawful Possession of Cannabis. William E. Kramer, age 58 was
arrested for Unlawful Possession of Cannabis. All four subjects of the
home were transported to the Adams County Jail. Tallcott and Brewer were
lodged on the meth charges. Richard and William Kramer were both released
on a Notice to Appear in court.

Four children in the home and a fifth child attending school were taken
into protective custody by the Illinois Department of Children and Family
Services.

A check of Adams County Court records shows that Brewer is currently out on
bond for a previous meth case that was investigated by the Task Force in
May of this year. Brewer was charged with Unlawful Possession of
Methamphetamine and Methamphetamine Precursor in a case that involved
Richard L. Huddleston. Brewer has waived her right to a jury trial and is
scheduled to enter a plea on October 2nd. Huddleston plead guilty to his
charges and was recently sentenced to twelve years in the Illinois
Department of Corrections.

All subjects are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
