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.

They waited too long. Anything incriminating has gone Mexico way along with the good doctor.

Redemption: The Truth Behind the Michael Jackson Child Molestation Allegation is the book that proves Michael Jackson was framed in 1993. The author, Geraldine Hughes, was the legal secretary that worked for the attorney of the 13 year old accuser's father and she witnessed an elaborate extortion scheme, launced as child molestation when MJ refused to pay the $20 million dollars for a movie deal.

In loving memory of Michael Jackson, his fans, family and children, I am determined to clear MJ's name. Get your copy of Redemption and learn informatoin that has not been made public. Available on Amazon.com/shops/hughespublishing.

Bet any medical files they confiscate are incomplete/not truthful. Also, bet his shredder's been pretty active. I will be completely shocked if anything meaningful is found.

I agree!
Why have the DEA and LAPD--coroner taken so long to raid this Dr. or any of the other Dr.'s? What about Dr. Klein? He's had plenty of time to "fix" his medical records! This all should have been done immediately following Michael's death.
Just like the house not being sealed! That was very dumb of the cops. It will come back to bite them.
Supposedly some surveillance tapes are missing, too! Well, had the house been locked down IMMEDIATELY, that could not have happened.
TMZ-- please find out about these supposed tapes?!!!

MJ's been dead almost a month already! Don't you think any evidence relating to him would have been disposed of by now? And once again, why wasn't the Holmby Hills mansion sealed? We saw two moving vans worth of stuff being moved out of there the day after he died!

What took the Feds so long?
