LUBBOCK, TX -- Several Lubbock Police officers showed up at suspended Lubbock City Attorney Sam Medina's central Lubbock home about 7:30am Friday morning.
The police departments evidence van was parked in front of the house and an officer was seen going inside with a camera. Officers were also seen searching part of the garage. Medina's attorney Rod Hobson arrived at the house about 8:30am and police left a short time later.

After the search Lubbock Police released the following statement:

On Friday February 21, 2014 at 7:30 am Lubbock Police served two search
warrants simultaneously at 6605 Norwood and 2310 61st Street. During the
course of an earlier investigation another possible crime was discovered.
Search warrants were authorized by Judge Schapp of the 47th District Court
in Potter County. Evidence related to the ongoing investigation was
recovered at both locations. No arrests have been made.

Last week Potter County District Attorney Randall Sims was named as a special prosecutor to investigate and possibly prosecute Medina. He revealed publicly last month   that his estranged daughter-in-law accused him of sexual assault. Lubbock Police turned over their finding to the Lubbock County District Attorney who in turn asked Sims to take the case.

Medina denied the allegations and is now on unpaid leave from the City of Lubbock.

When asked if there is a timeline to present the case to a grand jury, Sims said, “It will be a while.”

“There’s not a timetable yet,” Sims said. 

Medina has said the allegations came from divorce of his son, Erik, and his soon-to-be former daughter-in-law.
