A Quincy man was arrested on multiple methamphetamine charges Monday afternoon after a search warrant was executed at 807 Broadway, Apt. 4 by the West Central Illinois Task Force.

Troy E. Cleeson, 44, was arrested for aggravated unlawful participation in methamphetamine production, unlawful delivery of methamphetamine and unlawful possession of methamphetamine after agents discovered a shake-and-bake meth lab.

He was lodged in the Adams County Jail.

This is the second bust at the same apartment in recent months.

On Sept. 28, Charles W. Barger, 38, was arrested after a shake-and-bake meth lab was discovered.
Barger was charged with aggravated unlawful participation in methamphetamine production and remains lodged in the Adams County Jail awaiting a December jury trial.

Assisting in the investigation were the Quincy Police Department Street Crimes Unit and the Illinois State Police Methamphetamine Response Team.

Cooper, a golden doodle, is teacher Erin Armbruster's trained therapy dog, and his pawprints reach beyond just her classroom. "He helps out the students. He's a very good dog," fifth-grader Myles Cain said.
