*Earlier today (05-10-16), the DEA showed up in force at Prince‘s Paisley Park home to execute a search warrant.
We’re also learning that there is an active federal investigation into the doctors who prescribed meds to the late entertainer, sources connected with the investigation told TMZ.
Our sources say the feds are conducting the probe under a series of federal laws targeting doctors who sell prescriptions to drug abusers. Our sources say this is precisely the reason for the investigation.
The laws also outlaw doctors and pharmacies who falsify record or forge prescriptions.
Our law enforcement sources tell us … there’s an additional element … crossing state lines to violate prescription laws. Our sources say the feds are also looking at the son of the rehab doctor who flew to Minnesota with a backpack full of synthetic opiates. We’re told Andrew is under the federal microscope.
As we reported, the son, Andrew Kornfeld, was at Prince’s home when he died.
