HOLLIS (WGME) -- A reported overdose at a Hollis home Thursday night led to the discovery of a massive meth lab and the arrest of 10 people.

Maine State Police said the overdose happened at 114 Killick Pond Road in Hollis just after 11 p.m. Thursday.

First responders found several active methamphetanine labs inside the house. Police secured the scene and investigated into Friday after a search warrant was obtained.

The Maine Drug Enforcement Agency clandestine laboratory team found eight active one pot meth labs and about 25 used labs, along with chemicals to make and finish making meth.

About 25 used meth labs were also discovered, bringing the total to 33 in the house.

Police said children were living in the house until about two months ago when they moved out of the house with their mother. Police believe it is likely meth was being made when the children were living there.

Those arrested included nine from Hollis and one from Limington.

Joseph Allman, Jr., 54, of Hollis and Joseph Allman, III, 34, of Hollis are charged with operating a meth lab. State police said AllmanJr. is a former president of the Outlaws motorcycle club and went to prison for his role in the attempted murder of a rival motorcycle club member.

The other eight face a charge of criminal conspiracy. They include Kyle Allman, 31, of Hollis, Shawn Brown, 35, of Hollis, Sandra Brown, 60, of Hollis, Shelby Morris, 26, of Hollis, Josie Kimball, 28, of Hollis, Derek Berube, 30, of Hollis, Dillan Libby, 28, of Hollis and Ashley Norton, 27, of Limington.

State police were assisted by the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency, the York County Sheriff's Department, the Maine Department of Environmental Protection and Hollis Fire/Rescue.
