California police have executed a search warrant at Justin Bieber's home in connection to an alleged neighbourhood 'egging' incident.
The Baby hitmaker's neighbour, who has reportedly clashed with the pop star in the past, called the Los Angeles County Sheriff's department last week (ends10Jan14) after reportedly discovering Bieber hurling eggs at his front door.
Police took down a report and subsequently named the singer a suspect in their investigation.
The victim initially claimed the 19 year old's alleged antics caused $400 (£250) in property damage, but estimates have now reached $20,000 (£12,500), according to Tmz.com.
On Tuesday (14Jan14), law enforcement officials arrived at the singer's home to execute a felony search warrant.
Sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore tells the New York Daily News, "I can confirm we have served a search warrant at Justin Bieber's residence as part of a felony vandalism investigation."
Bieber was reportedly detained in his garage as police searched the premises.
Whitmore continues, "He is there, and we are right now in the process of serving the warrant. We're looking for anything we might need to move this investigation forward."
Bieber's pal Kelly Osbourne has waded into the drama, suggesting it's ridiculous that tax dollars are being used to investigate an 'egging' incident in a tweet.
She writes, "You play you pay but really who gets arrested for throwing a bloody egg!"
