(NaturalNews) A witness on the scene during the Rawesome Foods raid has publicly stated that an agent of the Specialized Surveillance & Enforcement Bureau of the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health stole $9,000 in cash from James Stewart after placing him in handcuffs. The $9,000 in cash was about to be used to acquire food products (honey, watermelons, eggs and others) that are offered to club members of Rawesome Foods.

During the raid on Rawesome Foods, $4,500 in cash was taken from the store and $9,000 confiscated from James Stewart, but only the $4,500 in cash was noted on the warrant. California law requires that all items seized at the raid are noted on the warrant, but the LA County Department of Public Health failed to note the $9,000, meaning there is no longer any paper trail for this cash that was taken from James.

Lela Buttery, a witness at the raid, explained this on the Robert Scott Bell Show (www.NaturalNewsRadio.com) Sunday, August 7, 2011:

"The warrant states that they are to take various samples of dairy products. It also says that they can take files, computers, hard drives, cash, etc., but they have to account for everything. So all of the milk that was dumped out is not accounted for. There's a part of the warrant that they have to say what they confiscated. There were envelopes in the office that were already set out to pay these vendors... that was about $4500, but when Terrence Powell asked James Stewart how much money is on the premises -- that was one of the first questions that was asked -- so he said he had nine grand on him, and Terrance asked why would you have so much money on you right now? That money was taken and on the currency sheet it is not on there. So I'm looking at some government agencies that are pocketing some dough right now."

The Terrance that Lela is referring to is Terrance Powell, Bureau Director, Specialized Surveillance & Enforcement Bureau of Los Angeles County Department of Public Health. He is one of the five key government people responsible for masterminding this raid which has now been publicly called an act of government terrorism against innocent Americans.

In response to Lela's explanation, Robert Scott Bell answered:

"Yeah, we're looking at criminal organizations, racketeering if you will, these are the organized crime people that are in government, and they're looking for funds. Because they've realized they've tapped out on the taxes of the American people; they've indebted and enslaved children yet to be born to a debt that can never be repaid. And of course they're going after the people who eat and drink raw milk. It's the new source of bailout money -- Rawesome Foods in Venice, California! This is beyond belief!"

Later, when I joined the show, I said:

"Lela just broke some news on your show about the fact that the authorities took a large amount of cash that was not noted on the warrant -- I think $9,000. Can Lela confirm that's the case? Because that looks like outright theft."

Lela replied:

"That indeed is the case. I have the warrant right here, I have the [list of] currency that was obtained, and it was the $4500 which was the envelopes that were in the office, but I was standing with two other witnesses while James was in handcuffs and they asked him how much money was on the premises, and when he said that he had nine grand in his pocket, they asked him what it was for, he said it was for the produce, and they took that money and confiscated it, and it was not recorded. It is not on the currency control sheet."

This eyewitness account seems to indicate that LA County Dept. of Public Health authorities took $9,000 from the raid without properly recording it on the warrant, thereby eliminating any paper trail of the cash. Of course, following the posting of this article and the public scrutiny that will undoubtedly follow, you can expect this $9,000 will magically reappear and they will claim it was some sort of oversight or mistake that's now being corrected. Or, perhaps, they will just say, "What $9,000?" and brazenly just steal it. These people are engaged in criminal misconduct, after all. They conduct armed illegal raids against innocent farmers in total violation of civil rights and basic human rights. They operate in total abuse of their power.
