The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Central District of California has released a statement confirming that a Hollywood Hills man has been arrested on federal charges of selling fentanyl-laced pills to Mac Miller (Malcolm James McCormick). The transaction took place two days before Miller's overdose death in Studio City on September 7, 2018.

Cameron James Pettit, 28, was arrested on the morning of Wednesday, September, 4, by special agents with the Drug Enforcement Administration and officers with the Los Angeles Police Department.

According to the affidavit, “late on the night of September 4, Pettit agreed to supply McCormick with 30-milligram oxycodone pills, as well as cocaine and the sedative Xanax. But, instead of providing McCormick with genuine oxycodone when he made the delivery during the early morning hours of September 5, Pettit allegedly sold McCormick counterfeit oxycodone pills that contained fentanyl – a powerful synthetic opioid that is 50 times more potent than heroin.”

The affidavit also reveals that in the following hours after news outlets began reporting on the rapper's death, Pettit sent a message to a friend saying, “Most likely I will die in jail.”

If convicted, Pettit would face a statutory maximum sentence of 20 years in federal prison.
