UPDATE: Bieber’s rapper pal was arrested on the premises with COCAINE
Justin Bieber’s BFF Lil Za has just been arrested for COCAINE POSSESSION at the singer’s home — during the early morning raid stemming from the Bieber egg attack on his neighbor.
A rep for the L.A. County Sheriff’s Dept. confirmed the arrest for FELONY drug possession … and said the cocaine was “in plain view” during the raid. Officials say Bieber was “not connected” to the cocaine.
10:47 AM PDT: A Sheriff’s official just told us they were NOT looking for eggs in Justin’s house. Nonetheless, another law enforcement source told us earlier today … they were looking for ANYTHING in the house that could link J.B. to the crime … and as farfetched as it seems, even eggs were a possibility.
We’re also told deputies dismantled Justin’s security system and took it.
Eleven L.A. County Sheriff’s patrol cars descended on Justin Bieber’s house this morning and they are executing a search warrant in connection with the egg-throwing incident … law enforcement sources tell TMZ.
Sources tell us … deputies are looking for any evidence that links Bieber to the egg assault on his next door neighbor.
We’re told this is a FELONY search warrant — meaning Justin is under a microscope for a crime that could land him in prison.
Sources say cops will look for anything that is relevant to the egg incident, including other eggs in the house and possible video. Sheriff’s deputies have looked at TMZ’s video of the incident and believe Justin has surveillance video that might have captured the egging.
By the way … looking for other eggs may sound silly, but it isn’t. There could be some sort of identifier that links what’s in Justin’s fridge to the broken eggs outside.
Here’s the thing … If in the course of the search cops find something illegal — like drugs — it’s fair game.
It looks like the police are going after Justin, to set an eggs-ample, for any would-be scofflaws considering going a-fowl of the law.
I’m sorry. That was…that was terrible.
On a serious note. The police didn’t find any drugs in the house. We certainly would have heard about that.
