Mac Miller's Alleged Drug Dealer Arrested & Charged In Connection To His Death

Mac Miller died almost a year ago this month. His death sent shockwaves through the Hip Hop community & beyond. Just shy of the 1 year mark, Miller’s alleged Hollywood Hills drug dealer has been arrested & charged in connection with his death.

According to NBC, prosecutors charged 28-year-old Cameron James Pettit on September 4, accusing him of providing Miller with counterfeit oxycodone pills laced with fentanyl.

In a new 42-page criminal complaint out of the Central District of California, prosecutors claim Miller had asked Pettit for “percs,” the abbreviated name for the powerful narcotic pain killer percocet.

Miller was found unresponsive in his Studio City home on September 7, 2018. Although the manner of death was initially certified as an accident, it was later determined Miller died from an overdose of alcohol, cocaine and fentanyl.

During the investigation into his death, authorities recovered a plastic bag containing pills allegedly supplied by a prostitute and a madam. Two days earlier, Pettit delivered to Miller counterfeit oxycodone pills that contained fentanyl, cocaine and Xanax.

Instagram DMs between Pettit and other people who were reacting to Miller’s death were included in the criminal complaint.

“I think I should probably not post anything … just to be smart,” Petit allegedly said in one of the posts. When asked how he was doing, Petit allegedly replied, “I am not great … Most likely I will die in jail.”

DEA Los Angeles Deputy Special Agent in Charge Daniel C. Comeaux promised to speak up for those who are no longer with us.

“While the death of any victim of the opioid epidemic is tragic, today’s arrest is another success for the DEA’s HIDTA Fusion Task Force,” Comeaux said. “Let our message be clear, if you peddle illegal drugs and kill someone, the DEA will be the voice of the victim. We will not rest until you face the justice system.”

Pettit is one of three people who allegedly supplied Miller with the drugs. It’s unclear when (or if) the other two (presumably the madame and prostitute) will be charged.
