Authorities reportedly found two small children and an infant living in a Quincy home with a meth lab Thursday night.

The West Central Illinois Task Force executed a searched warrant in the 1000 block of Ohio Street and reportedly found a shake and bake meth lab that included items used to make meth.

M/Sgt. Patrick Frazier says 36-year-old Ricky Barnes was arrested and charged with aggravated unlawful participation in methamphetamine production. He was scheduled to appear in court Friday.

Authorities also allegedly found a four wheeler that was reported stolen earlier this year.

The children are now staying with a family member.
