A rapper and close associate of Justin Bieber has been arrested in connection with cocaine found in the home of 19 year old pop singer, Justin Bieber’s home in California.
A search was being conducted on the house by law enforcement agents in relation to an egging incident at a neighbour’s home for which Bieber is suspected to have been involved. During the search cocaine was found and rapper Lil Za was arrested. The police say the cocaine was not connected to Justin Bieber.
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.
Lil Za is a rapper who once lived at Bieber’s Calabasas home … and he’s been tight with JB for years.
Eleven L.A. County Sheriff’s patrol cars descended on Bieber’s house this morning to execute a search warrant in connection with Bieber’s egg-throwing incident last week outside his neighbor’s home … law enforcement sources tell TMZ.
Sources tell us … deputies are looking for any evidence that links Bieber to the egg assault.
We’re told this is a FELONY search warrant — meaning Justin is under a microscope for a crime that could land him in prison.
