      Quincy man pleads guilty after police find meth lab in his home

      A Quincy man is waiting to be sentenced after he pleaded guilty to making meth.

      An Adams County judge sentenced a Quincy man to jail time and probation after he pleaded guilty to charges of making methamphetamine.

      Ricky Barnes, 36, was arrested in August after police say they found a shake-and-bake methamphetamine lab in his home.

      Three children were also removed from the home at the time of his arrest.

      Circuit Judge Scott Walden sentenced Barnes to 180 days of periodic imprisonment, 36 months probation and nearly $3,000 in fines and court costs.

      Barnes was originally charged with multiple felonies including aggravated methamphetamine manufacturing.

      His charges were reduced as part of a plea deal.
