A senior manager in the information technology department at electric car maker Tesla pleaded guilty to three counts of filing false tax returns after he failed to disclose more than $220,000 in income generated from selling MacBooks he stole from his employer.

Cory Beck had access to the company’s vast array of computer products. He stole the laptops from October 2015 to March 2018.

He faces up to three years in prison and fines totaling $100,000 for each count in his guilty plea.
