-- 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.

That's his voice. Undoubtedly. Unless it was taped over, I think it's sufficient evidence.

It was in his house, in his possession, so why wasn't he arrested. In most states if you possess it, doesn't matter if it wasn't yours, but if it's in your possession you get charged.

Why do people keep saying that a minor is being harassed? Isnt the little princess over 18? Then an adult is being investigated for felony vandalism. She is not 12,so she can deal with adult consequences. Wait,whats that you say? Thats a dude? WTF, since when did tranny pop singers from Americas hat become relevant?

Hearing Bieber getting in trouble nowadays is getting old and he's like what 19 and he's going around at 7 o'clock at night, egging his neighbors house?! Like who the **** does that? He's obviously a child and that's probably the reason why Selena Gomez left him because he can't grow up. I knew a Bieber would have a bad future just knew.. Sometimes the innocent faces do the ugliest things and therefore are criticized. I never really liked Bieber.. He forgets his own ethnicity because he hangs out with African Americans too much. The wrong kinds of African Americans.. When you hang out with those type of people trouble happens to come with them and therefore you get sucked in and just happen to do bad things as well. It's all about who you surround yourself with. If you surround yourself with good people good things will happen but Bieber doesn't GAF. I think Bieber should just step away from fame for a while or maybe a long time. He should fly to an island where nobody can find him and just stay there and when everybody forgets about him, he'll return and nobody will give a **** about him maybe his beliebers.. I don't know why but I feel a lot of anger towards Bieber possibly due to the fact that he gets himself into a lot of bad ****. Point is Justin Bieber will never grow up because he doesn't understand the meaning and so he reverts to doing the opposite and maybe he hangs out with black people because his own race doesn't like him.

They're both illegal..DRUGS. Period.

Both drugs will fry your brain!

Such LOSERS!..Both guilty by association...haha.

Throw the book at them both..maybe then they'll learn.

I do believe it's time Justin Bieber to begin to grow up. I wonder how long his notion that he is still seen as the innocent one in any situation. I also wonder how long it will take before he realizes that he is not untouchable, invincible, nor above the law. I don't equate these thoughts to him having money.I equate these thoughts to being young.
