Lake Havasu City, Ariz., police arrested Ryan Reavis in connection with the overdose death of Pittsburgh rapper Mac Miller.

Police in Arizona arrested a man Tuesday in connection with the death of Pittsburgh rapper Mac Miller.

The Arizona Republic reported Ryan Reavis, 36, of Lake Havasu City was arrested Tuesday, and police said a search of his home yielded a prescription pad, prescription pills, drug paraphernalia and marijuana.

The arrest comes three weeks after federal authorities arrested a Los Angeles man and charged him with selling Miller oxycodone pills laced with fentanyl on Sept. 5, 2018.

Miller was found dead in an apartment two days later. An autopsy found he died of an accidental overdose via a combination of fentanyl, cocaine and alcohol.

Police said they also found various firearms, a personally manufactured firearm suppressor and large amounts of ammunition in Reavis’ home. He faces numerous fraud, drug and gun charges.

The Arizona Republic reported that police did not identify the direct connection between Reavis and Miller’s death.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
