Investigators found over 500 shake-and-bake containers on the property
Drug investigators in Quincy have uncovered what was described as one of the largest methamphetamine operations seen in the city.
After a month and half long investigation, officers with the West Central Illinois Drug Task Force along with the Adams County Special Response Team raided a home at 412 Spruce St. in Quincy Monday around 9:45 am.
Authorities found over 500 bottles used in the production of "shake and bake" methamphetemine. According to Illinois State Police Master Sergeant Pat Frazier, one bottle is the equivalent of one batch of methamphetemine.
"The amount of stuff we seized was out of the ordinary. This was a shake and bake operation and there was evidence of numerous shake and bakes. We actually had to have a truck come to help us deal with it because it's more than we can deal with locally," Frazier said.
Two individuals were home at the time of the raid and were taken into custody.
31 year old Field M. Wolf and 34 year old Christina Rife were arrested and charged with unlawful participation in meth production and meth waste.
They are lodged in the Adams County Jail.
The Quincy Police Department and the Meth Response Team also assisted in the investigation.
