-- 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.

This is stupid , like the cops have nothing better to do. Wow man hours, judges time to get a search warrent and police over egg throwing . Just wash off the egg. It's like a mom said don't cry over spilt milk. It 's just milk just clean it up. What a waste of time and tax payers money. Aren't there unsolved murders, drug dealers selling drug, people home getting broken into , rapes, and major crimes that could you this time and man power. Like him or hate him it does not matter this completely stupid and a waste of money!

Everybody has eggs in their house. Yes he's turned into a little ****. But this is freaking ridiculous it really is wasting people's time and money. There's more important things these officers could be doing. Also I'm sure justin and his people have been on tmz so therefor getting a heads up on what's gonna happen. Plenty of time to get rid of stuff.

Get real. He has avoided jail this long...his lawyers know the drill, they definitely prepped the Justin on what to do. Might explain his new relationship with his old fling. Nice and cleaned up presence for the courts. They will find no drugs.......nor eggs. Lol

Justin Bieber should move out of this neighborhood as soon as possible and then sell his house because his neighbors really hate him. They have called the cops on him several times.

See what happens when you hand your minor child over to people you don't know. They turn him into a thug. That's some bad parenting right there, by Justin's mother. I guess she is too busy writing her own books and seeking out her own attention. Big shot Christians forgot to teach their child how to respect himself.

Ridiculous ...why waste tax dollars for a search warrant regarding an egging. Money should be spent on putting more officers on the street or solving violent crimes for example murder or rape.
