Another Drug Dealer Arrested In Mac Miller Overdose Investigation

Authorities in Arizona arrested and charged another person in connection with the overdose death of rap star Mac Miller.

The suspect has been identified as Ryan Reavis (pictured), who’s 36 years old and currently living in Lake Havasu City, Arizona.

The Lake Havasu Police Department charged Reavis with both the commission of fraud and the possession of guns and drugs. This came after a search of Reavis’s home, in which investigators found a prescription pad, which is used by doctors to issue prescriptions. They also found prescription pills, pot and drug paraphernalia as well as two shotguns, a pistol, ammunition and a homemade firearm suppressor.

Notably, the Lake Havasu police declined to say how exactly Reavis is connected with the late rapper and how he was involved in his death.  At the moment, Reavis, who is now in the custody of the Mohave County Sheriff’s office, is being held on $50,000 cash-only bond.

The Lake Havasu Police Department was not the only authority involved in Reavis’ arrest. Agents from both the FBI and the DEA assisted the police department’s Special Investigations Unit. The DEA is currently leading the investigation into Miller’s death.

A few weeks ago, federal prosecutors charged Cameron James Pettit with giving the rapper the oxycodone pills that killed him. The pills were said to have been counterfeit and contained fentanyl.

Mac Miller died in 2018, and his death was ruled an accidental overdose.

In addition to fentanyl, an autopsy revealed that Miller also had both alcohol and cocaine in his system at the time of his death.

So far, both the FBI and the DEA are declining to comment about Reavis’ arrest.

Mac Miller shot to fame in 2010 at the age of 18, signing a record deal with the independent Rostrum Records. His debut album Blue Slide Park quickly became an indie chart-topper.  Miller subsequently struggled with the pressures and trappings of fame, which included an unsuccessful, high-profile relationship with Ariana Grande.  While alive, Miller openly discussed his struggles with substance abuse and depression.
