LUBBOCK, TX-7:30 Friday morning several Lubbock police officers were seen in City Attorney Sam Medina's central Lubbock home.

Investigator’s were seen walking into the home with camera’s, with an evidence truck parked out front.

Soon after, Lubbock police sent out a press release saying they had search warrants for two houses, one on the 6600 block of Norwood and one on the 2300 block of 61st street.

Property records show both homes are owned by Medina.

Those search warrants came out of Potter County, where authorities are investigating allegations of sexual assault.

But according to police, today's search warrant is a part of an unrelated investigation into a second possible crime.        

Police did not say directly what this second crime could be, but a case number included with today's statement refers to an incident from a Lubbock Walgreen’s.

On February 14th police were called to the store to investigate potential  fraud.

The police report gives no more details.

What we do know is Medina's son Erik graduated from Baylor medical school in 2000, but his license has been expired since 2006.

We were told allegations could be practicing medicine without a license, but that is something that police and the prosecutor would not confirm.


Medina’s attorney Rod Hobson did release this statement.

“Search warrants were served on two properties owned by Sam Medina by the Lubbock Police Department this morning. Mr. Medina was cooperative with the officers. Certain items were taken by the police department. As far as we know, these items have nothing to do with any alleged wrongdoing by Sam Medina and are not related to the false allegations of sexual assault made by soon to be ex-daughter-in-law, Angelina Medina. Sam Medina looks forward to the day when he is no longer the subject of speculation and suspicion. He is confident when all the facts are known he will be vindicated.”-Rod Hobson
