Powerful sedative found in Michael Jackson's home

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A law enforcement official says the powerful sedative Diprivan was found in Michael Jackson's home.

Diprivan is an intravenous anesthetic drug widely used in operating rooms to induce unconsciousness. Also known as Propofol, it's very unusual to have in a private home.

The law enforcement official spoke on condition of anonymity because the person was not authorized to speak about the matter.
