      Four arrested during meth house bust

      Larry Adkins, 43

      Four people face criminal charges after police raided a meth house this week.

      Officers with the West Central Illinois Task Force and Quincy Police executed a search warrant at a home at 1702 McKinney Street.

      That's when they discovered meth-making ingredients.

      Police arrested the four residents of the home: Larry L. Adkins, age 43, Kevin E. Adkins, age 44, Thomas L. Dickerson, age 48, and Pamela S. Gunderson, age 46.

      During a search of the residence, agents recovered numerous ingredients and materials utilized in the manufacture of methamphetamine. All four subjects were lodged in the Adams County Jail on various Meth Manufacturing related charges including aggravated unlawful participation in meth production, unlawful possession of methamphetamine precursors, unlawful possession of methamphetamine manufacturing materials and methamphetamine conspiracy. Some of the charges were aggravated due to an elderly female residing at that address.

      Court records indicate that Gunderson was currently on bond from Morgan County for a recent arrest for possession of methamphetamine and possession of a controlled substance. Court records also indicate that Larry Adkins is currently on probation for possession of methamphetamine from a previous methemphetamine manufacturing arrest.
