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.

This letter is not going to help this is a theat by the law and it call tamping with the suspect. Plus only and Judge to order it sent he file a lawsuit. Another bad mistake. only the police can order it for Justin to give it back he should of file the lawsuit and lets see if their are picture of Justin coming out of the heat basketball areana then if their is then he busted as a so call paparazzi. This is now harassment oh busted look like Justin has now got evendice to sue the lawyer and his cleint.

Digital Cameras do not use SIM cards to store pictures, only memory flash cards.The only Digital Camera that uses a SIM card, is the Samsung Galaxy camera.That is because the SIM card is used to connect to the network used by smart phones. So that photog must have meant his flash memory card.

When are these camera men going to start protecting themselves and their property? If that was my job and I had to deal with these holier-then-thou celebrities I would start carrying pepper spray or a taser and anyone who messed with me would get a warning followed by spray to the face or a shock to the groin.

Once again here we go with all these allegations about Justin Bieber that have yet to be proven in court. This celebrity stalker that is posing as a photographer will spend years trying to get it back and will declare bankruptcy before he ever sees a day in court.

Aside from Justin having the car, I wonder what is on it that is so important to get it back. We all are hating on Justin, but as a parent of a child who is coming up in the recording industry, these fricking vultures caused him and many others to be this way and to become spoiled in their fame.

Sometimes too, its a game to an artist to try to outrun the paparazzi. It also takes a lot of planning to outrun them ( look at Lady Diana)

I agree with you all that he can be a snotty kid. But is it going to take another death to get the paparazzi to stop?

debería de existir una ley que prohíba que los paparazzis persigan y acosen de esta manera, al final son los causantes de muchos accidentes que incluso pueden ser letales.
buitrers - carroñeros, que no se miden al momento de tomar una foto después los golpean con el auto y la culpa resulta siendo del conductor ha ha definitivamente el sentido común es el menos común de todos los sentidos.

There should be a law that prohibits paparazzis pursued and harassed in this way, in the end, they are the cause of many accidents that can even be lethal. buitrers - filthy , which are not measured at the time to take a photo after the hit with the car and the guilt is still has the driver's definitely has the common sense is the least common of all the senses.
