(QUINCY)—A second arrest is made following the discovery of a shake and bake meth lab at 640 Monroe in Quincy Thursday night.

The West Central Illinois Task Force and Adams County Deputies say a tip leads to the arrest early this morning of 42 year-old Jamie L. Bias on charges of aggravated unlawful participation in meth production, meth related child endangerment, and unlawful possession of methamphetamine. Bias is currently on parole for a meth related conviction stemming from 2010.  He is lodged in the Adams County Jail.

Bias is the second person arrested after authorities execute a search warrant Thursday night at 640 Monroe in the southwest part of Quincy.

39-year-old Kristie Gower was arrested during Thursday’s initial investigation on a Class X felony charge of aggravated unlawful participation in meth production, felony charges of meth related child endangerment and unlawful possession of methamphetamine.

Gower is also held in the Adams County Jail. Task force agents say a 12-year-old child was removed from the home and placed with a family member.

Agents encourage the public to provide information to law enforcement anytime they suspect illegal activity.  Information can be reported to the Quincy Regional Crime Stoppers by calling (217)228-4474.
