Several Tesla Gigafactory Workers Allegedly Trafficking ‘Significant Quantities’ of Cartel Drugs, says Ex-Employee
Karl Hansen, a former member of Tesla’s internal security department and its investigations division, joins ex-Gigafactory technician Martin Tripp as the second Tesla employee seeking whistleblower status with the SEC. But Hansen’s offering up claims that go far beyond the alleged manufacturing issues
Hansen allegedly informed the company that $37 million in copper and other raw materials were stolen between January and June of 2018. He said the California-based electric car maker urged him not to report the theft. Hansen worked in Tesla’s security department until being fired in July 2018.
Hansen is the second Tesla whistleblower to come forth with negative allegations against the electric car company in a week.
