QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

A Quincy woman was sentenced to probation Wednesday morning in connection with one of the biggest meth busts in the city's history.

Court documents reveal Christina Rife, 35, was sentenced to 24 months probation. Rife pled guilty in August to one count of meth manufacturing, less than 15 grams.

She was also originally charged with meth manufacturing between 15 and 100 grams, possession of a stolen firearm and possession of meth less than five grams. Those charges were dropped as part of plea deal.

In addition to probation, Rife was fined $5,000 and sentenced to 180 days of periodic imprisonment. She was credited with 72 days of time served. Her jail time is on hold, however, and will be reviewed during a hearing scheduled for January. 

Rife was arrested Jan. 7 along with 32-year-old Field Wolf after police searched their home near 4th and Spruce. Authorities say they found more than 500 shake and bake meth labs during the search.

Wolf pled guilty in May on federal charges of conspiracy to manufacture a controlled substance and possession of firearms in a drug trafficking crime. He's scheduled to be sentenced in November.
