-- 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.

So let me get this straight: the police raid JB’s house( the house with his name on the deed) and they arrest his Lil black friend? Am I the only one that noticed that Za takes the rap for everything JB does?! Only in America!!! Lil Za needs a wake up call and this just might be it. Hanging with the Biebs does nothing but harm.

Prison for throwing eggs!? Yes, Please let's waste tax payers money. Is the guy he egged more powerful or have more money than the Beibs? Ah, first world problems...Geesh. A drug raid with 11 cops on Justin Beiber. Really? Smh. All they got was a little Molly, this is just too stupid. Are we sure this isn't set up by Justin Beiber's people to give him more street cred? I mean he is getting older and the aw shucks routine is getting is stale.

This is by far the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard of! We're talking about a kid egging someone's house! Its not the first time a teenager threw some eggs at a house lol I think we all have bigger problems in the world to worry about. I'd rather see eggs flying through the air than bullets! Everyday young men, Justin's age are pulling out guns and shooting people! The effort these cops put into raiding Justin Bieber's house is an embarrassment! We have children being kidnapped everyday! Drug dealers selling drugs out in the open! Innocent people getting killed! But let's all worry about what Justin Bieber is doing! Pleaseeeeeee what a joke! He's a 19 yr old kid doing what every other 19 yr old is doing....getting into trouble and doing stupid ****!!!!

Since it's a Felony case, IF charges are brought against him and IF he's found guilty, could he be deported? He's not a US citizen after all.

The authorities need to throw Bieber in prison for as long as possible. He is nothing more than a PUNK. He started his career in a good light, but as usual, turned to the dark side and needs to see what happens to gang bangers.

He probably has a lot of 'hangers on' and he's probably spending all his money.

I'm starting to think Justin is the bad influence and not his friends its like he is trying to prove his "gangsterness" so he's pulling these dumb stunts and they're the ones getting the blame for it

Justin needs to be deported and his thug group of losers need to be placed on an island somewhere quite frankly anywhere never to be heard of again.
