Justin Bieber

Tells Sheriff's Deputies ... Pound Sand!!!

My Cell Phone Is My Secret

Justin Bieber scoffed at L.A. County Sheriff's deputies who raided his home when they asked for the password to his cell phone ... and now they may have to get ANOTHER search warrant.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... during the raid on Bieber's home, a member of the Sheriff's Department asked the singer if they could take a look at the texts ... to see if he bragged about the egging of his neighbor's home.  We're told he immediately shut them down.

Now get this ... It's been a week since the search and the Sheriff's Department has NOT cracked the code.  One law enforcement official tells us ... they have no interest in looking at Bieber's unrelated photos or texts.  They have some sort of machine that can isolate the time frame around the egging so that the only texts that come up are from that period.

Our sources say the Sheriff's officials now think they may have to get another search warrant -- this time from Bieber's phone carrier -- to get the elusive texts.

Or, they should just call the NSA.

Don't worry, the NSA doesn't trace the calls of threats to anyone. They only trace the calls and texts of innocent civilians.

Obviously all these people are well to do. The next step is private security sprinkled in with vigilante justice. Justice will get hurt. The law is treating him with kid gloves. A pissed off neighbor will not be so kind. This is how terrible things happen. Justin cannot blame this incident on Twist and Za.

If I were the neighbor, I would file a civil case on him now including forcing him to pay all damages, all my legal bills and time lost from work. What's he wating for???

HOA's are expensive. I would look at them for sitting silent and doing nothing.

Who cares! Clearly the neighbour has money if he lives in Calabasas. Plus there's no proof he did it even if he did.. He is hot and talented so of course we have to find something wrong with him. Smh

First of all, if the police have a permit to search his phone, than it's not violating any of his rights. It's also okay because it's for suspicion of drugs. If they find drugs on him, would he be sent back to Canada? PLLLLEEEEAAASSEE send his selfish little butt back!!!

ya just can't search people's phones w/o a search warrant - I'd have laughed at them too if they asked for my p/w.

LA cops must be really soft....they seem to take a beating everyday from these entertainers. In the real world this punk would be thrown behind bars years ago. It looks like LA law enforcement lets these people walk all over them for fear of upsetting the rich folks in Hollywood.

Police officers are notorious for leaking information to the media and tabloids. I wouldn't give them access to my private text messages either.
