Stolen truck and prosthetic arms returned to Ocoee man

OCOEE, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35 ORLANDO) -- The prosthetic arms and truck that were stolen from an Ocoee man have been found and returned.
Chris Miller's truck, which was reported stolen early Tuesday morning, was found in Winter Park early Thursday morning with the prosthetic arms still in the vehicle.
Miller said that the extra pair of prosthetic arms that were still in the truck when it was stolen were worth about $100,000. Still missing are tools and extra parts needed to repair his arms, worth about $30,000.
"I wouldn't care if they came and threw it on my lawn for me to find. To me, it's a small gold mine," said Miller. "The arms I have right now broke just a little a while ago, and now I'm without parts and pieces that I need to fix these arms."
Miller has been using prosthetic arms for 10 years. He was in an electrical accident on the job and his arms were amputated below his elbow. He says his arms are his lifeline.
No arrests have been made thus far and the case remains under investigation.
