Neighbor Describes Scene at Dr. Murray's Vegas Home
Police arrive at Dr. Conrad Murray's community
Although authorities from the DEA, Los Angeles and Las Vegas police departments searched Dr. Conrad Murray's Las Vegas residence Tuesday, the scene inside his ritzy community was "calm," a neighbor tells PEOPLE.

"It's very calm in there, very controlled," said one resident who lives near Michael Jackson's physician at Red Rock Country Club community in the suburb of Summerlin, about 20 minutes from The Vegas Strip.

"We've been expecting [the raid]," says the neighbor, who doesn't know Murray. "I thought this would have happened a while ago."

The female neighbor could not see DEA agents carrying out the search, but said there was a noticeable police presence at the home. Though the scene was relatively low-key, several curious neighbors in the guard-gated community watched the search take place.

The search comes less than a week after authorities raided the Houston offices of Murray, who was with Jackson when the entertainer was stricken last month in his Los Angeles home.
