24 year old Nicholas Strieker is charged with burglary, possession of a controlled substance and was wanted an Illinois Department of Corrections parole violation warrant.

Streiker's arrest is for a burglary to a business in Marceline, Illinois in September of 2021, resulting in damage to the business and the theft of cash.

19 year old Zarious Smith-Palmer is charged with armed violence, aggravated use of a weapon, possession of a controlled substance and an unrelated warrant.

Smith-Palmer's arrest came as the result of a traffic stop at 5th and Maine. A search uncovered a loaded handgun, which will be submitted for testing to see if it is connected to recent shooting incidents.

27 year old DuQuan Smiley is charged with aggravated discharge of a firearm, and 19 year old Xavier Clark is charged with aggravated discharge of a firearm, possession of a controlled substance and an unrelated warrant.

Smiley and Clark were arrested in connection with an incident in August of 2021 at 5th and Locust in Quincy, when occupants of a vehicle reported they were shot at and their vehicle was hit multiple times, with one person inside the car being struck.

Quincy Police reports these arrests are not for the February shots fired incidents, but came as the result of information gathered during the ongoing investigation.

Strieker, Smith-Palmer, Smiley and Clark are lodged in the Adams County Jail.

You'll likely pick up some knowledge from a wide range of Americana: one of the last remaining 1950s-style drive-ins in the Midwest; a Florida town that started as a Civil War veteran retirement area; an island boasting some of the country's top public schools and wealth-earners right in the middle of a lake between Seattle and Bellevue; and even a California town containing much more than Johnny Cash's prison blues.
