-- Police now believe it's probably NOT cocaine, but Molly ... a form of ecstasy.

Justin Bieber
's BFF Lil Za has just been arrested for COCAINE POSSESSION at the singer's home -- during the early morning raid stemming from the Bieber egg attack on his neighbor.

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.

Za's bail has been set $20,000. He is still in custody.

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.

A Sheriff's official told us they were NOT looking for eggs in Justin's house, but another law enforcement source said cops were searching for anything that was relevant to the egg incident, including eggs and possibly video.

Sheriff's deputies have looked at TMZ's video of the incident and believe Justin has surveillance video that might have captured the egging. We're told deputies dismantled Justin's security system and took it during the search.

0113_cop_cars_biebers_houseBy the way ... looking for other eggs may sound silly, but it isn't.  There could be some sort of identifier that links what's in Justin's fridge to the broken eggs outside.

Here's the thing ... If in the course of the search cops find something illegal -- like drugs -- it's fair game.

We're told there's a battering ram at the scene.

as usual, they go to investigate the white kid, but a black kid gets arrested.

If the cocaine was in plan site and Justin Bieber owns the home , why wasn't his white ass arrested too? Why was the black dude the only one in the house arrested?

Maybe parents who pay for their tweens to buy Beaver's CD's and go to his shows will see he is a terrorist and drug addict. If they have any sense at all they will cut off the funding and "lil beaver' will dry up and blow away.

The beaver will never end up in prison, where hopefully someone would beat the crap out of him.
1. The judge won't have balls big enough to do it
2. Someone else will come forward and say they did it, and beaver face just happen to be there
3.Somehow evidence will get lost or there isn't enogh to convict him.

like the cops would send a felony search warrant against one of our neighbors who egged our house. This sounds like a witch hunt

This kid isn't learning a thing. So, if harassment is what it takes - then go ahead. He is acting like a spoiled rich kid. Harass him all you want. Until he learns how to act.

Justy Beiber threw eggs on the wall. Justy's BFF takes a great fall(for coke). All the state's cops and all the state's DEA could not put Justy Beiber away.

I do feel a little sorry for him but wow just wow.
