The Michael Jackson manslaughter investigation moved Tuesday to a Las Vegas pharmacy, where authorities searched for evidence linked to the singer's private physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, according to reports.

Agents from the Drug Enforcement Administration and detectives from the Los Angeles Police Department raided Applied Pharmacy Services in a Flamingo Road strip mall and stayed for about 90 minutes, seeking documents and computer hard drives, DEA agent Mike Flanagan said.

After completing the search, agents in full masks were seen removing crates from the pharmacy, located about five miles west of the Las Vegas Strip and in between Murray's home and office. The search warrant applied to documents and other records of transactions involving Murray, according to ABC News and TMZ.

Authorities previously searched Murray's Las Vegas home and offices in Las Vegas and Houston, looking in particular for evidence of the powerful anesthesia propofol, which several reports say was given to Jackson the night before he died.

Murray, who was with Jackson when he was stricken at home, has denied giving Jackson drugs that would have killed him.
