Use of a search warrant Wednesday night in a Quincy motel room results in a methamphetamine related arrest.

West Central Illinois Task Force agents searched a room at 200 Maine at 8 p-m. Agents and Adams County Sheriff’s deputies say they observed 40 year old Nathan Craig destroying evidence in the toilet as they searched room 229. Craig was taken into custody after a short struggle. He was taken to the Adams County Jail. Authorities say a quantity of meth was recovered from the toilet. Craig is charged with unlawful possession of meth and obstruction of justice.

Court records indicate Craig was previously sentenced to the Illinois Department of Corrections for possession of a controlled substance and for obstruction of justice/destroying evidence.
