Tesla whistleblower claims its staff in Nevada trafficked cocaine and meth for a Mexican drug cartel and covered up the theft of $37m in raw materials

  • Karl Hansen made the series of extraordinary claims in a public letter Thursday
  • Claims Tesla investigated DEA tip off but did not disclose the findings to officials
  • However, DEA said it would not tell ‘non-law enforcement entities’ about probes
  • Hansen also says employees were told not to report huge thefts to the police
  • Disgruntled former employee has been called ‘super nuts’ by CEO Elon Musk
  • Comes as Tesla shares slumped 8 percent after Musk told of woes in interview


Tesla whistleblower is claiming the company covered up drug trafficking at its Nevada gigafactory by employees linked to a Mexican cartel, as well as the rampant theft of raw materials.

Former security guard Karl Hansen says the electric car company launched an ‘internal investigation’ after a May 24 tip-off from the DEA that ‘significant amounts’ of cocaine and crystal meth were being exchanged by staff.

Hansen makes a series of other extraordinary claims in a public letter issued by his lawyers on Thursday, including that Tesla failed to disclose the alleged theft of $37 million in copper and raw materials and spied on staff.

It comes as Tesla’s shares slumped 8 percent in the wake of a bombshell interview with CEO Elon Musk in which he burst into tears, asked for someone to take his job and admitted he relies on Ambien to sleep.

Musk has dismissed Hansen as ‘super nuts’ and the company issued a statement on Thursday saying some of his claims were ‘outright false’ while others were ‘not corroborated’. They also said Hansen not engaged with their efforts to understand how he had come up with some of the allegations.
