A Quincy woman was arrested Monday on an Adams County warrant for unlawful possession of methamphetamine.

Members of the West Central Illinois Task Force and the U.S. Marshals Service arrested Christie R. Smith, 40, at her residence in the 800 block of North 22nd. The drug charge stems from a search of Smith's residence in November. Smith posted 10 percent of a $5,000 bond Monday. Her next court appearance is March 13.

According to Adams County circuit clerk records, Smith was charged in 2008 with unlawful possession of methamphetamine and manufacture/delivery of cannabis. That case was dismissed. In 2009, she was charged with aggravated unlawful participation in methamphetamine production. That charge was dismissed after she pleaded guilty to unlawful possession of methamphetamine.

She received 30 months of intensive probation as part of the Adams County Drug Court program. She graduated from Drug Court in June 2011.

Tony Baker recently watched a video of the 1991 Class A state championship game with his 11-year-old daughter. It had been several years since Baker, an all-stater as a senior at Pittsfield High School, had seen the game. "I sure was awful skinny, and those shorts were awful short," he said with a laugh. "But it was neat to watch. It's kind of a blur, but I can remember plays that were called in every game. It's so surreal."
