A 24-year-old Quincy woman was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of unlawful possession of methamphetamine.

Diane M. Beers was arrested after the West-Central Illinois Task Force conducted a search at Beers' residence at 2423 St. Anthony Road. Items "consistent with the use of methamphetamine" were found in the residence, according to news release from the task force.

Beers was taken into custody and released after posting bond.

According to the news release, Beers was already out on bond in connection with her arrest April 9 on a charge of aggravated unlawful participation in meth production. She is scheduled to appear in court in November on that original charge.

Assisting in the investigation leading to Wednesday's arrest were the Adams County Sheriff's Department, the Quincy Police Department's K-9 unit, and the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services.
