28- year old, Cameron Pettit, was arrested Wednesday morning in connection to Mac Millers death. Pettit is facing federal charges in relation to selling counterfeit drugs to Miller. Miller was found deceased due to a drug overdose last year.
According to NBC News, The 42-page criminal complaint filed in the Central District of California alleges that Cameron James Pettit, 28, supplied Miller with counterfeit oxycodone pills containing fentanyl. Miller had asked to be furnished with "percs," an abbreviation for percocet, a prescribed painkiller containing oxycodone.
Pettit distributed the narcotics to Mac Miller two days before he found unresponsive in his Studio City home on September 7, 2018. The Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner determined that the rapper died from an overdose of fentanyl, cocaine and alcohol.
United States Attorney Nick Hanna said, "We are aggressively targeting drug dealers responsible for trafficking illicit fentanyl, which has become the most deadly facet of the opioid epidemic. We are committed to slowing the number of overdose deaths and prosecuting those responsible for spreading this most dangerous opioid."
If convicted, Pettit faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in federal prison.
