Drug Agents Search Las Vegas Pharmacy in Jackson Investigation

As part of the ongoing investigation into Michael Jackson's death, police and federal drug agents searched a Las Vegas pharmacy this morning.

DEA agents, along with LAPD and LVPD officersarrived to the Applied Pharmacy Services off the strip at around 9:20 this morning.

DEA spokesman Jose Martinez said, “They are looking at everything that was provided by that pharmacy, including records of controlled substances.”

Dr. Murray, who main residence is in Las Vegas, is still the focus of the investigation. Federal agents are now looking into Jackson’s possible interactions with at least six other doctors.

Michael Flanagan, assistant special agent in charge of the DEA in Las Vegas, said the search warrant was issued “without incident” and the pharmacy staff was cooperating.

He said authorities were searching for any and all paper documents and electronic records, but he declined to provide any details.

According to Access Hollywood, agents wheeled at least four cases from the pharmacy.

Meanwhile, as Hollyscoop previously reported, the Los Angeles County Coroner’s office refuses to release any information regarding Michael's death.

The coroner announced yesterday that they want the cause of Michael’s death to remain under wraps to the public while detectives continue to investigate the case, which is presumably tied to Dr. Murray.
