I Want My Stuff Back!

Justin Bieber is being warned -- return the SIM card you allegedly stole from a paparazzo in Miami ... or else!!!

TMZ has learned ... Gustavo Garces has lawyered up and fired off a letter to Bieber's manager -- demanding the immediate return of the memory card that Bieber took on June 5 ... after the singer allegedly ordered his goons to steal Gustavo's camera.

We obtained an audio recording of the incident in which Bieber can clearly be heard copping to the theft -- and telling Gustavo, "I'm gonna give you your camera back. I'm gonna take your SIM card though."

Now, Gustavo's lawyer has fired off a letter to Bieber's manager informing Team Bieber that he plans on filing a lawsuit ... and he needs the SIM card as evidence in the case.

Garces also warns Bieber not to tamper with the card -- because there are "dire consequences" for messing with evidence.

Bieber's people had no comment.

Hopefully this Criminal activity cost Justine a lot of Money, She has no right to order her Body Guards to steel property.

Somehow i do not think Justine will take that Demand letter seriously, and it will cost her a lot of money in court.

Beiber is a little snot, a little thug-wanna-be. His "bodyguards" should let him go just ONCE when they hold him back from ANYBODY (neighbor, photog, little girl next door...) and let the other person lay this wimpy kid out. Do him a favor, let him see what real life is all about and how fake and protected he is.

This wanna be gangster (stealer of Sim cards lol). He would soil his baggy pants if he went to jail and saw what real gangsters look like.

That recording should be enough for the police to arrest this girl and prosecute her for theft. Why are the police afraid of The Bieb anyway?

Just because Bieber calls it a SIM card doesn't mean that you should. It's a memory card. SIM card is totally different

The photog should claim he just snapped a picture of the real Elvis and the sim card is worth millions.

One day, someone will run into this little mofu when he has no bodyguards around and then beat the hell out of this pos. It's just a matter of time...

Why should a court case even be necessary? Why didn't the cops arrest this little brat on the spot when he took it in the first place (or head to his home & do so after receiving the report of theft)?

It's time this punk kid learns that he can NOT just do whatever he wants and get away with it.
