The local police force say that not only did this egging cause thousands of dollars in property damage, but that there was evidence that allowed them to raid the pop star's home.
While they were searching for evidence of wrongdoing on the teen star's part though, police found something else completely - an amount of cocaine that was sitting out "in plain view" as the officer in charge of the operation related at a press conference. A close friend of Bieber's, rapper Lil Za was arrested for being in possession of the cocaine.
The raid was carried out by twelve police officers, a move that many online are calling excessive - but Bieber's neighbors likely don't believe so. Bieber has upset the community in which his mansion is located over the past few years with all-night parties and reckless driving through the streets of what was once a relatively calm and affluent neighborhood.
At this point in time, no one in Bieber's camp has made a statement on the raid.
