According to a “source familiar with the investigation” the way the thing works is this company has employees who trade stolen auto parts for drugs from a cartel.
We are not talking about a couple thousand bucks here, but millions and millions of dollars.
It would not shock me at all if the CEO was involved. One of his personalities probably thinks of himself as a Pablo Escobar/El Chapo/Tony Montana (using a different instrument of war than a machine gun) type.
It would all seem to be kind of a full circle thing if you think about it and how another CEO went down back in the day.
Investigation: Securities and Exchange Commission
Elon Musk – Tesla
Back in the day CEO: John DeLorean
Tesla stock dives as a tearful Elon Musk prompts speculation about board actions
Speculation mounted Friday that Tesla Inc.’s board will hire an executive to run the electric carmaker’s daily operations after the erratic behavior of Elon Musk, its billionaire founder and chief executive, roiled the company and its stock price.
Musk raised new questions about his leadership in an interview with the New York Times on Thursday. An emotional Musk was described as alternating “between laughter and tears” as he discussed an intense work schedule and health problems during what he called an “excruciating” year. – Source
Rearview Mirror: The meteoric rise and dramatic fall of John DeLorean
DeLorean was burning through cash, and in January 1982 a complicated stock issue he expected would raise $27 million was cancelled. The British government had already invested some $138 million, and wouldn’t supply any more unless DeLorean could raise an equal amount from investors. The company went into receivership, and on October 18, 1982, the government announced plans to close it.
A day later, John DeLorean was arrested in a sting operation in Los Angeles, charged with attempted trafficking of 24 kilograms of cocaine. It’s believed he planned to use the proceeds to fund his car.
He was acquitted two years later on grounds of entrapment, and later beat subsequent charges of tax evasion and fraud. In 1985, his car found lasting fame when the movie Back to the Future put a flux capacitor into one and went time-travelling with it. – Source
