DEA Raids Mickey Fine Pharmacy

8/21/2009 3:24 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The DEA is at Mickey Fine Pharmacy in Beverly Hills, warrant in hand, raiding the pharmacy that Michael Jackson used for years.

DEA Raids Mickey Fine Pharmacy

Law enforcement sources tell us they are searching for evidence of "improper dispensing of controlled substances," in connection with the death of Michael Jackson.

The pharmacy was used extensively by Dr. Arnold Klein and other doctors who treated Michael Jackson. Jackson obtained prescriptions for Demerol and many other drugs at Mickey Fine.

Mickey Fine sued Michael Jackson in 2007 for non-payment of a bill of more than $100,000. The case settled.

UPDATE: 4:51 PM PT Law enforcement sources tell TMZ the DEA found irregularities in Mickey Fine's drug dispensing practices when it came to Michael Jackson. Agents are searching records at the pharmacy for the various aliases Jackson used.

They are also looking at the drugs various doctors -- including Dr. Arnold Klein -- prescribed for the singer. And, we're told, one of the "irregularities" agents believe occurred is that the pharmacy may have refilled prescriptions that should not have been refilled and completely bypassed the doctor.

Most druggies do their dope with others...called let,s party.They don,t give a rats ass who pays,most steal it out of your house.Sell it for 10 cents on the dollar and move on to the next rip off job.So if he has the money you won,t see his problem till he is dead.Then his family does there best to cover the deeds by ohhhh my poor understood baby.We had no idea this was going on.Sounds like all the same story ,,go to a court room any town and you can hear it for yourself.Hope it never happens to your child.

The pharmacy which was used by Dr Klein & other Dr's who treated MJ where he obtained the prescriptions for Demerol & other prescribed drugs...this seems as if "icing on the MJ cake"....Mickey Fine actually sued MJ for for nonpayment for more than 100k in 2007 while the case was later settled; wow!! I still ponder why-why-why this specific pharmacy is allowing all the tedious time the DEA is having & has had to to take & track vs the Mickey Fine pharmacy coming forward & admitting the wrong doings & mismanagement of "improper dispensing of controlled substances" in connection to MJ??? What still continues to amaze me, is how slow all of the search warrants up to now have been executed, who knows maybe the better question is the lack of hitting these places in a organized fashion on the same day after gathering their evedince to cover their bases. I understand & respect the law & DEA office building a case, but seriously the steps they've taken to raid one place in one state one week then another place in another state another week so on & so on seems to be giving the people & facilities more than enough time to destroy or get rid of evidence in their own way to cover their own mishaps! (that's putting it nicely!!) I'm just utterly amazed @ how slow the case is continuing to unravel.
All I continue to hear through the media is that the DEA & LAPD are not able to release the autopsy/toxicology reports until all charges have been obtained & filed, if even then; well.... it seems as if the DEA is doing a great job releasing & allowing the public to put the pieces of the BIG mystery report together.


It's so sad to see so much about such a misunderstood soul & I honestly believe MJ deserves the ultimate peace he strived so desperately for here through his untimely death without having to wittness all we have been left with through the media speculation & reporting. Afterall, nothing changes his timeless gift & talent he graced us with as an entertainer & the countless charities he founded & supported throughout the world.
MJ, you will continue to be missed while prayers will continue to go out to your children for shieled protection & for your extended family left to carry & honor your triumphant legacy. Thank you for it all! God must have truly felt your work here was complete & needed you so much more in heaven with Him & the angels to continue your work as a precious soul; now I must "Smile" through my tears.

I want to f*ck the s*it out of MJ. He was the hottest piece of azz i have ever seen. Look at him air humping and grabing his crotch, that man kept me dripping wet. All you haters can lick my *****. Don't be jealous cause you can't be what he was. Keep on telling your jokes, you are only amusing yourselves.

I am still amazed that people think MJ was the only celebrity to have precscrpitons filled in names other than his own. This is common for ALL celebrities...also i am sick of people especially "journalist" calling him a drug addict..he may have had a dependency on prescription drugs, but "drug addict" NO...as for the excessive pharmacy bill....did anybody ever stop to think maybe he was footing the bill for family, staff, maybe even some children that couldnt afford medicine they needed???? That pharmacy bill does NOT NOT mean that it was all medicines for him..

Michael Jackson was a Freak. You are delusional. People like you and other MJ fans are the type of enablers he surrounded himself with in order to drug himself to death. Think about it: you are the reason he is dead! You wanted his music. You wanted his dance. You wanted his concerts. You wanted more of him. He was getting old and wearing out. He expired!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
34. 18. Even though these doctors contributed to his death...MJ has no one to blame but himself. He was warned by several people about the dangers of the drugs he was taking. (Harvey, I heard MJ has sperm donors as he was afraid of being intimate with a woman. Going in cup isn't like sleeping with a woman is it? Makes you wonder about who he was sexual attracted to)....

STOP these stupidities, Harvey and you are persons totally disgusting. MJ was a normal man with normal relations with women.

Mickey Fine Pharmacy has long been a prestigious pharmacy that caters to the upscale residents in Beverly Hills, Bel Aire, Brentwood and Westwood. The staff there are snobbish.

Hawk-nosed lawyer on the 18th floor at this address represented
me in a matter and ripped me off to the tune of $83,333.33 for
doing approximately 12 hours of work during a 2 year period of time.
He is the one with the security camera bolted above his entry door.
Ethical professionals don't need to resort to cameras to spy on their
customers/clients. Just goes to show us that professional titles are deceptive as the street whores. A crook by any other degreed name is still a Crook.

boy! is it any wonder,Klein had his 2 shifty-eyed lawyers on Larry King to do damage control??

also, Debbie Rowe having a snack at Mickey's with Entertainment Tonight?? rather gives the game away,doesn't it?

like I keep repeating- MJ's drug addiction stemmed from Arnold Klein-- no 2 ways about it. And I just LOVE the way he tripped himself lying to his eye sockets considewring all that' s coming out now. GOODIE! he's a nasty piece of work.

as for his kiddies-- that MJ I tell ya-- had a sense of humour. As it turned out-- he was collecting sperm-- so all these donors don't know what's what.

MJ even got MARLON BRANDO'S goodies.. NOW, Brando was still siring babies way into his 60's.. he had some gorgeous kids from his chilean maid..

and taking this into account-- if you've seen Marlon's baby pics-- Prince had some striking resemblance to the Baby Bud(Marlon's nickname) same shape head,blonde curly hair, the fineness of t he hair.. IT WON'T BE SURPRISING-- after all, Marlon Brando was/is considered the finest actor of the 20th century.. something that will appeal to MJ with the gene pool.
