Police raid Spring Lake home, confiscate stash of drugs


A town of Spring Lake man is facing multiple felonies and decades in prison if convicted after police performed a drug raid last week.

Aaron Allan Addison, 44, Spring Valley, pleaded not guilty and was ordered to pay $5,000 cash bail Jan. 20 on felony possess with intent – fentanyl > 50 grams, felony possess with intent – cocaine > 40 grams, felony possess with intent – amphetamine/ methamphetamine > 10-50 grams, felony bail jumping, felony battery or threat to judge, prosecutor or law enforcement officer, felony maintain drug trafficking place, possess amphetamine/ LSD/psilocin and possess drug paraphernalia charges. If convicted, he faces up to 40 years in prison and/or fines up to $100,000.

According to the complaint: The Pierce County Sheriff’s Office and St. Croix Valley Drug Task Force conducted a search warrant at N8774 200th St., Spring Valley, which is located just northeast of town. The only person there was Addison, who told police they’d find cocaine and methamphetamine in the bedroom. He said he hadn’t worked in seven years because his father is rich.

During the search, police found and seized 56 grams of cocaine and fentanyl, 22 grams of methamphetamine, Ecstasy, 97 clear and pink gem baggies, a digital scale with cocaine residue, a black plate and gift card with cocaine residue, a glass pipe, $1,647 in cash, commercial packaging that tested positive for marijuana, and other paraphernalia.

For the past six months, Pierce County Dispatch has received multiple complaints of suspicious activity at Addison’s address, including large groups of people yelling and screaming near the entry door, vehicles coming and going between 3 and 5 a.m., and vehicles staying for only 10-15 minutes before leaving.

In calls made from the jail, Addison threatened to blow officers’ brains out and seek revenge.

He is scheduled to appear for a preliminary hearing at 11:30 a.m. Jan. 25.
