A second person has been arrested in connection with the Thursday night search of a residence at 640 Monroe in Quincy.

The West Central Illinois Task Force and Adams County Sheriff's Department's investigators arrested Jamie L. Bias, 42, on Friday morning.

Bias was wanted by the task force after a raid of the home on Monroe Street. A shake-and-bake methamphetamine laboratory was seized during the search. Bias was arrested on suspicion of aggravated unlawful participation in meth production, meth-related child endangerment, and unlawful possession of meth.

The charge is aggravated because a 12-year-old child lives at the residence.

Bias, who is on parole for a 2010 attempted meth delivery, has been lodged in the Adams County Jail.

Task force agents said a tip led to Bias' arrest.
