QUINCY, Ill. (AP) – Adams County Sheriff’s deputies say they arrested a 19-year-old woman wanted on a federal drug charge when she fell through the ceiling from her attic hiding place during their search of a Quincy residence.

Deputies say Carlyle Harrison of Quincy was arrested Thursday on charges of possession of methamphetamine and unlawful production of methamphetamine and methamphetamine waste. They say more arrests are expected.

Deputies say they went to the residence, accompanied by agents from the U.S. Federal Fugitive Task Force, and were permitted in. They say they found a meth lab inside.

Harrison was being held in the Adams County Jail, and deputies did not say whether she has an attorney.
