UPDATE — Jan. 15, 12:35 p.m. ET: Rapper and Bieber friend Lil Za was arrested for drug possession during the raid. The drug in question was originally believed to be cocaine, but may instead be Ecstasy or Molly.
Lil Za's arrest is not in connection with the ongoing egging investigation at the Bieber mansion.
After being arrested, Lil Za reportedly damaged jail property and now faces two charges, one for the drug possession and one for the vandalism. He has been released on bail.
At least half a dozen police cruisers descended on Justin Bieber's Calabasas, Calif., mansion on Tuesday morning, serving the pop star a felony search warrant in connection with an egging incident in the neighborhood.
TMZ was first to report that Bieber was being detained at his house while police investigated. TMZ posted this video of the alleged incident, which they say was shot by a neighbor claiming Bieber trespassed on his property and pelted it with eggs.
WARNING: BAD LANGUAGE
The incident, which happened last Thursday, reportedly caused more than $20,000 in damage.
Justin Bieber has not been "charged or exonerated" in the egging case, the Los Angeles County Sheriff said, but several pieces of evidence were removed from the home and are under review by sheriff’s investigators.
