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.

33. You had to know this was coming. I dislike Joe Jackson just as much as the next person. But you have to put that aside and listen to what Joe said. Why? Because he's right about the suspicious nature of his sons death. Especially the part about how MJ having his own personal doctor, could have something like this happen. Then to top it off, when the paramedics showed...the doctor had bailed. Where there is smoke there is fire.

I truly believe the doctors MJ hired, at some point or another realized he was a drug addict. The problem Conrad Murray faces is you dont sit there and feed drugs to a drug addict. Even the guy from AEG said that when he asked MJ about his choice of doctors. MJ said his body was the vehicle that moved the show. He then goes on to say..."When MJ says something like this you dont refute it". My question to this fella is......Why not??

Conrad Murray (from what this investigation will uncover) is one on a long list of doctors who abuse their perscription privledges. We are also going to find out that there are far more stars than MJ who are getting this kinda of "attention" in Hollyweird. Some stars in Hollyweird are shaking in their boots. The fact that Propofol was at the house warrants a felony arrest period. There is no way in hell MJ acquired that drug on his own. I just hate the fact that people were so blinded by Michaels star power, that no one forced MJ to get some help. If MJ was one of my best friends, I would have went to the media with his problem. He may have hated me for it, but he would still be here today. He would also know that "some" people care about him and his well being 1st. Screw the money.

If the investigators dont get to the bottom of this. Its only a matter of time before we are talking about this when another star falls. Which is too late then.

the TRUTH    

It’s amazing to me that the Feds are spending millions and wasting energy on something so stupid. Michael Jackson was a drug addict….so what! Michael Jackson and his so called career was DEAD long before he was pronounced dead back in June! You know it; I know it, end of story. Again, who gives a rat’s ass?

FACT: This Dr or any other Dr. could have prescribed all the drugs in the world to Michael Jackson…Jackson chose to put them in his body. he didn't have to, but he CHOSE to. Wake up people ….whatever happened to “personnel responsibility”? Stop blaming the Dr(s). Jackson would’ve gotten the drugs anyway from someone else. You know it; I know it, end of story. STFU already about this dead fu**king clown.

Better look in all the tiny and weird nooks and crannies - drugs and paperwork can be put in ceilings, walls, floors, fixtures and in lawn vaults. That guy is in deep kukka and knows it.
