Monday, October 29, 2012

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. – Right HealthCare, a medical supply business based here, was raided Friday morning by FBI agents, according to an article from Bakersfieldnow.com. An FBI spokeswoman said a warrant was obtained for a search of the location, but she provided no further comment. The company, founded in 1998, is owned by Jim and Lillian Ebling, but according to a spokesman from the Kern County Assessor’s Office, property taxes for the office have not been paid for the “past couple of years,” the website reported. FBI agents were seen checking vans marked “Right Healthcare,” as well as two storage pods. The FBI spokeswoman in Sacramento said the case is now sealed. When it becomes unsealed—it is unknown when it will—she said the case would be handled by the U.S. Attorney’s Office, the website reported.
