When James Stewart, founder of Rawesome, asked the police officers for a copy of the Search Warrant, specifically the section that explain "the crime" they were investigating, they said: "we don't have it". Can you believe it!!!
Ilegal raid, with guns drawn, like looking for armed criminals waiting to start shooting at them!!!
