Man Arrested in Scheme Converting Cow Manure into Renewable Energy

A 64-year-old man has been arrested in a $8 million scheme in which he promised to convert cow manure into renewable energy.

Raymond Brewer of Porterville was arrested late last week on a 24-count indictment charging him with wire fraud, money laundering, and aggravated identity theft, U.S. Attorney McGregor W. Scott announced. A grand jury returned an indictment on Oct. 29, and it was unsealed Thursday.

According to court records, since at least March 2014, Brewer acted primarily through his now defunct, Tulare-based company called CH4 Power to steal at least $8,750,000 from investors. He purported to build anaerobic digesters on dairies in Fresno, Kern, Kings, and Tulare counties and elsewhere in California and Idaho.
