Bieber's Pal Lil Za Arrested & Bailed For Drug Possession
Cocaine was allegedly found at Justin's home during police egg raid...
A representative for the Sheriff's department said that a substance that appeared to be cocaine was in "plain view" during the raid, though it was not reported how much of the drug was allegedly found.
Officials said that Bieber was "not connected" to the drugs that were discovered. A spokesperson for the Sheriff's department could not be reached by MTV News US for comment at press time and it was not reported how much of the drug was found.
Za was released on bail late on Tuesday night and was booked for a felony narcotics possession, but Lieutenant Michael Williams confirmed that he was also charged with felony vandalism after he damaged - "not destroyed," he clarified - a phone in his holding cell.
Williams could not confirm the final bail, but the vandalism charge increased his initial bail by $50,000. He also did not have any updates on whether the substances found were cocaine or MDMA.
Za, a close friend and sometime houseguest of Justin's has previously landed himself in trouble with the authorities before, after he was caught fooling around in the 19-year old's luxury cars.
The arrest came while deputies detained Bieber in his garage as they tried to find surveillance video from the star's home that might shed light on his reported yolk attack.
Eleven Los Angeles County Sheriff's patrol cars arrived on the scene early Tuesday with a felony search warrant in connection with the incident from Thursday (January 9) in which the Biebs' next door neighbour claimed that Justin pelted his house with eggs.
As a result Justin is a suspect in a vandalism investigation and he was reportedly held in his garage during the search.
Unnamed sources said deputies were looking for any evidence that would link Bieber to the egging, including other eggs in the house or video from the night of the incident.
The neighbour claimed that the All That Matters singer hit his house with no less than 20 eggs.
Though the initial police report described the incident as a misdemeanour, the neighbour has claimed damage in excess of $20,000, which could bump the incident up to a felony.
Bieber and his team are yet to comment on the reports.
