Michael Douglas' son has been busted for holding a massive stash of Meth with intent to sell, police sources confirmed Monday evening.

Feds arrested 30-year-old Cameron Douglas last week after an undercover cop allegedly found half-a-pound of the toxic substance on Douglas at Manhattan's swanky Hotel Gansevoort, according to reports. 

Police confirmed to The Associated Press that the son of Oscar-winning actor Michael Douglas had been arrested for meth dealing on July 28. But there were conflicting reports on whether he also was holding $18,000 cash at the time of the sting, or if that number represented the street value of the drug he was allegedly caught with.

Cameron Douglas has acted in movies including 2003's "It Runs in the Family," starring his father and grandfather Kirk Douglas.

In 2007, Douglas was arrested on cocaine possession charges. His lawyer said then the arresting officer did not do his job properly, according to the AP.

There's no telephone listing for him. It's unclear whether he has a new attorney.

Michael Douglas' publicist and agent haven't returned calls.

The hotel says it has no comment.
