While arresting Puff, officers found hydrocodone pills and meth. Puff, who is currently on intensive probation-drug court, was lodged in the Adams County Jail.
Quincy Officers and Agents of the West Central Illinois Task Force went back to 609 Adams that same day and a consent search was conducted at the residence. Items involved with shake and bake meth manufacturing were seized.
Puff was then charged with new charges of aggravated unlawful participation in meth production and unlawful possession of meth precursors.

Brown was arrested on four felony charges including aggravated unlawful participation in meth production, meth related child endangerment, unlawful possession of meth precursor and unlawful use of property. Brown was transported and lodged in the Adams County Jail. Adams County Records indicate that Brown was charged in 2009 and 2010 with drug offenses.
Children, ages 9 and 14 were removed from the home and are in the care of family. The Department of Children and Family Services has been notified and will initiate an investigation into the welfare of the children.
