Justin Bieber's Instagram Searched By Police

Police investigating claims that Justin Bieber threw eggs at a neighbour's house have viewed his Instagram account after being granted a search warrant, it has been revealed.

Detectives were looking for images of him in a white sweatshirt and baseball cap that would match surveillance video shot before and after last January's incident.

The footage from the Canadian singer's home appeared to show him 'high-fiving' friends and celebrating after throwing eggs at the neighbour's property, according to an investigator's affidavit.

The description of Bieber's reaction to the Los Angeles incident was included in documents filed to support a search warrant obtained in March.

It is alleged thousands of dollars worth of damage was caused to the house which detectives have reportedly said requires a felony prosecution of Bieber.

Prosecutors have not yet decided whether to charge Bieber, but if they do it would be the most serious case the troubled pop star has faced.

A search of his LA home took place on January 14 in which surveillance video was retrieved.

The warrant does not state whether any footage of Bieber actually throwing eggs at his neighbour's house was found.

"Suspect Bieber and the other males appeared to be laughing and celebrating," the affidavit signed by Sheriff's detective Ginni Alvarez stated.

The 20-year-old star frequently posts photos in Instagram, which is owned by Facebook and allows users to post images from their mobile phones.

He was delayed at Los Angeles International Airport by authorities on Thursday after returning from an international trip.

His publicist Melissa Victor confirmed the singer was subjected to "secondary questioning" by customs officials but was released without incident.

Bieber has previously been charged with assault in Toronto, and he faces a trial in July on a charge of driving under the influence in Miami.
