The US Drug Enforcement Administration said a man has been arrested for selling Mac Miller lethal fentanyl-laced drugs right before his untimely death.
The arrest was made on Wednesday. A 23 year old Californian man by the name of Cameron James Petit has been picked up. The US Drug Enforcement Administrator is investigating claims that he provided 30 milligram oxycodone pills, cocaine and xanax to the rapper 2 days before his death.
Petit has been charged with distribution of a controlled substance. He will appear in front of the United States District Court in Los Angeles on Wednesday. Whether he will be accompanied by legal representation is unclear. If convicted, he could spend 20 years in jail for his crime.
Apparently, Petit gave Mille counterfeit oxycodone pills which had fentanyl in them early on 5 September. The drug is a “a powerful synthetic opioid that is 50 times more potent than heroin.” Miller snorted these before he died. His death report by the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner had found fentanyl, cocaine, and ethanol in Miller’s system.
After Miller’s death, Petit messaged his friends via direct message on Instagram about the issue. He wrote, “Most likely I will die in jail,” and “I think I should probably not post anything … just to be smart.”
US Attorney’s Office director of media Thom Mrozek said in a press conference, “There are two other individuals who allegedly are responsible for supplying Mac Miller with narcotics. They have not been charged at this time.”
Mac Miller was 26 year old at the time of his passing on 7 September 2018.
