Two Quincy brothers were arrested Tuesday night on drug charges after a search warrant was served at 807 N. Sixth, where officers found 100 grams of liquid methamphetamine, police said.

Jeremy R. Deverger, 24, who lives at the residence, was arrested on charges of aggravated methamphetamine manufacturing, manufacture or delivery of methamphetamine between 15 and 100 grams, and possession of methamphetamine precursors. Troy A. Deverger, 18, of 1116 Washington, was arrested on a charge of possession of methamphetamine precursors. Both were lodged in the Adams County Jail.

Officers from the Quincy Police Department, the West-Central Illinois Task Force and the Illinois State Police Meth Response team executed the warrant. Police said the presence of a pregnant woman in the residence led to the more serious charge of aggravated methamphetamine manufacturing against Jeremy Deverger.
