Mac Miller’s Alleged Drug Dealers, Facing Jail Time Over Rapper's Death, Plead For Trial To Be Postponed After Police Submit Surveillance Video Into Evidence
Mac Miller’s alleged drug dealers are pleading for their trial to be pushed back to allow them to review new evidence submitted by prosecutors.
According to court documents obtained by Radar, the three men arrested in relation to Miller’s death, 28-year-old Cameron James Pettit, 46-year-old Stephen Andrew Walter, and 36-year-old Ryan Michael Reavis, want the trial pushed from November 16 to March 1.
The case was originally filed in 2019 and the trial has been pushed back numerous times. The defendants claim they need more time to review evidence submitted by prosecutors.
The evidence includes toxicology reports, LAPD reports, reports and audio recordings of witness interviews, applications for search warrants, video surveillance, cell-site and GPS data, photos of items recovered at the scene and search warrant returns from social media providers.

The alleged drug dealers also cried about being exposed to COVID if the trial went down next month. The judge has yet to rule. Police say 26-year-old Miller died at his home after accidentally overdosed.
The investigation found he had crushed and snorted a variety of drugs. Toxicology found he had fentanyl, cocaine, and alcohol in his system. Text messages obtained by police show Miller had text Pettit asking him for Percocet pills.
Pettit then contacted Walter on September 4 asking for “10 blues,” which is a nickname for Percocet. Walter then sent Reavis to run the drugs to Miller.
The drugs were delivered to Miller on September 5. He was found dead inside his bedroom on September 7. The drugs provided to Miller allegedly were counterfeit and contained fentanyl.
After arriving to Miller’s home, police found a magazine covered with blue-colored powder, a rolled up piece of paper and a gift card. They only found 6 of the 10 pills delivered left.
Once Miller’s death hit the news, Pettit text a friend, “I'm pretty sad and also a little worried.”
However, police say he was back selling drugs weeks later with Walter. Pettit is charged with distribution of a controlled substance and Walter is facing a charge of conspiracy to distribute a controlled substance while Reavis was hit with a charge for being a felon in possession of a firearm.
