-- 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.

He is such a self-entitled, spoiled rotten little brat who has had everything handed to him his entire life... Picture our youth of today (who are spoiled as well ) x 1000.... and there is Justin... he needs a little jail time to bring him back to reality and consequences to actions... gawd

I find it interesting that Lil Za is taking a fall. Why wasn't Justin Beiber arrested? The coke is in his house. He should have told whoever had it, if he didn't, that it had to go. If it was in plain view then he knew about it. They want to pin the lesser charge of throwing eggs on him so he can skate.

Juliana Rancik says his posse is at fault for all his woes and that he needs to get rid of them (black people). She is assuming that he is an angel. Please! His buddies didn't pee in the mop bucket. He did. I didn't see anyone holding it and forcing him. The footballers Keyshawn Johnson and Eric Dickerson say he's a menace. What more do you need authorities????

What a sad state of affairs...another young person risen to celebrity status botches it again..doing stupid things and having associations with questionable "friends"
Like this has not been done before...too much too soon and out of control...too bad living by example does not fly for these young people..always thinking I am in total control..well that is not what it looks like here??

Law enforcement can't win.
Damn if you do and damn if you don't.
Well, I am glad if they did something. It just too bad they haul JB away instead.
