Hazmat crews with the Virginia Beach Fire Department were called to assist with possible meth-making materials in the home.

Police arrested Evan Eugene Reames III and charged him with two counts of breaking and entering with intent to assault. He is currently being held at the Virginia Beach Correctional Facility on no bond.

The following people were also arrested in this case:

  • 39-year-old Kimberly Francis Volkman, of Virginia Beach, was charged with possession of a controlled substance and three counts of manufacture, sale, possession of a controlled substance.
  • 40-year-old Eric Scott Addison, of Virginia Beach, was charged with possession of a controlled substance.
  • 45-year-old Michael Joseph Hoiness Jr., of Chesapeake, was charged with possession of a controlled substance, two counts of manufacture, sale, possession of a controlled substance, conspiracy to violate drug control act.
  • 36-year-old Shawn Michael Addison, of Virginia Beach, was charged with possession of a controlled substance, two counts of manufacture, sale possession of a controlled substance, conspiracy to violate drug control act.

Police say there could be more arrests.

Neighbors say they were surprised to look outside and see a police presence Sunday, but were not shocked to see officers at the home on Northvale.

“I pretty much knew which house they were looking at because of the activity,” said resident Guy Landry.

Landry says he’s lived in the neighborhood since the early 1990s.

“Pretty quiet neighborhood. Not a lot of action here. We’re comfortable here.”

Others also described it as a family-oriented community.

“My neighbor was coming over to pick up my daughter for a play date. I said I’ll send her over. She said you might want me to come and get her. There are seven police cars outside,” says Kristin Hansen, who’s home was sealed in by crime scene tape.
