LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Los Angeles police chief says detectives investigating the death of Michael Jackson are looking at his prescription drug history and trying to talk with his numerous former doctors.

Police Chief William Bratton told CNN on Thursday that police are waiting for the coroner's report before ruling out any possibilities in their "comprehensive and far-reaching" investigation into the sudden death of the 50-year-old pop star two weeks ago.

The coroner's report will determine the cause of death and hinges on time-consuming toxicology tests, but detectives are already gathering evidence.

Bratton says the Drug Enforcement Agency and the state attorney general's office, which keeps a database of prescription drugs, are assisting investigators.

Meanwhile, Santa Barbara County Sheriff's deputiesm who raided Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch back in 2003, found a syringe, powerful narcotics, vials and IV bags containing what could be anesthesia.

TMZ has obtained the documents from the Sheriff's Department detailing what was found in the search. Among the items:

  • A vial of Versed - a powerful sedative
  • Several IV bags containing "a milky white fluid, located in a small cardboard box on top of the bathtub." Propofol and other anesthesias are milky white. As we first reported, Propofol was in Jackson's home the day he died.
  • A vial of Promethazine - an antihistamine with strong sedative effects
  • A bottle of Alprazolam (generic for Xanax, a powerful anti-anxiety drug)
  • A bottle of Percocet -- a painkiller
  • A syringe -- A vial with Demerol in it
  • Numerous loose pills outside bottles
  • A bottle of Prednisone - a steroid
  • Ery-tab - an antibiotic
  • Prescriptions for Xanax that had been filled
  • A prescription for Alprazolam
  • Oxygen tanks
  • IV stands

More coming up on Fox 29 during TMZ on TV at 6:30 PM.
