Feds Raid Dr. Conrad Murray's Office

7/22/2009 1:03 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

We've learned the Houston office of Dr. Conrad Murray is currently being raided by federal authorities ... and we've learned they are looking specifically for all medical records relating to Michael Jackson.

Click to view!
We're told 8 Drug Enforcement Agency vehicles arrived at his offices about 30 minutes ago. Two LAPD detectives also arrived on scene along with uniformed members of the Houston Police Department and 10 members of the DEA's Tactical Diversion Team. There are another dozen or so DEA agents on hand.

The law enforcement agents, armed with a search warrant, entered the property and began going through the property.

We're told the LAPD asked the DEA for help in serving the warrant on the Armstrong Medical Clinic in Houston. The warrant is sealed.

Dr. Murray was Michael Jackson's personal physician -- he was the man who performed CPR on Jackson before he died.

UPDATE: Last night, Murray's lawyer, Edward Chernoff, issued a statement on his website regarding investigators asking for more medical records:

"The coroner wants to clear up the cause of death; we share that goal. Based on Dr. Murray's minute-by-minute and item-by-item description of Michael Jackson's last days, he should not be a target of criminal charges."

UPDATE: It appears the DEA has left the building.

Putting him in jail is too easy for him.....I say we inject him with propofol a couple of times and see how he likes it. Bastard took away our King of Pop...our beloved Michael!

i just don't understand, why so many stars in america, need pain killers, for what??? PAIN!!!!. then why didn't the doctor deal with what the pain was????
i don't know anything about usa doctors, my doctor here in the uk, would never prescribe something i was addicted to, ever..
and if was for pain, she would sort the pain...
im no doctor but i wouldn't keep pumping something into some one, for no reason and if there was a reason.... WHAT?????

i really hope they get him on this and he does not go free---if not they are letting someone get away with taking mjs life to soon... even if he was an addict he deserved that right to take control of his own destiny the docs didnt need to do that for him...rest in peace mj you are still loved by many of us that are true fans.

Thanks TMZ for following the NEWS on this crackpot doctor that I believe killed MJ. I wonder if the authorities did a drug test on the doc. the day MJ died- maybe that's why the idiot did CPR on the freakin bed. Maybe the doc was drugged up or else one of the worse doctors in our beloved country. As for the nut that blasted you, TMZ, for covering this, it's on national news too. Good job TMZ (I can't believe I'm saying it) on the JM coverage.
