Hackers stole more the toys they intended to sell on eBay, a New York cyber truck maker said Tuesday, in a rare case of an individual stealing a vehicle.
The stolen toys included the Tesla Model S electric car, which is popular in China and other countries.
“I’m glad I found this truck,” said Chris Kroll, founder and CEO of the online toy maker, toytruck.com.
“My truck was stolen from me.”
Kroll said he contacted the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) after the theft.
He said his truck was not insured, but he was able to get a replacement from the truck manufacturer.
Kroll had said in the past that he would replace stolen trucks, but the theft happened at the same time as a lawsuit he filed against his former employer.
The NHTSA told CNN in a statement that they are aware of the incident and are investigating.
The FTC and the Justice Department have launched investigations into the theft of the Tesla, which was launched in 2012.
