HOLLYWOOD HILLS (TMZ) — Mac Miller was supplied deadly, fentanyl-laced pills that directly contributed to his death — according to federal prosecutors, who just filed charges against his alleged dealer.
Charges came down Wednesday against 28-year-old Cameron James Pettit, whom the feds allege supplied the rapper with counterfeit oxycodone pills that contained fentanyl in a new 42-page criminal complaint out of the Central District of California.
Pettit was taken into custody Wednesday morning.
Per the docs, prosecutors claim Mac had asked Pettit for “percs” — short for percocet, a prescribed painkiller full of oxycodone — and that the dealer ended up supplying the pills that contributed to Mac’s overdose death last year. The AP was first to report the story.
TMZ broke the story … Mac Miller was found unresponsive in his Studio City home. His death was later ruled an accidental overdose from alcohol, cocaine and fentanyl.
According to the charging docs, authorities served search warrants at multiple locations while investigating Mac’s death. Now, prosecutors are saying that Pettit had actually given Mac the counterfeit pills two days earlier, and they contained fentanyl, cocaine and Xanax.
There’s more — prosecutors allege that Pettit directly messaged on Mac’s death shortly afterward on Instagram, allegedly telling friends that he probably shouldn’t post anything as a reaction “just to be smart.” Prosecutors say he later wrote, “I am not great … Most likely I will die in jail” when someone asked how he was doing.
The criminal complaint that Pettit was one of three people who supplied Mac with the counterfeit drugs. It’s unclear who the two others are, or if they’ve been charged yet.
