OCOEE, FL (WESH/NBC) - Chris Miller woke up Tuesday to find his truck had been stolen from his driveway, but the thieves took more than just his vehicle. They also took $100,000 worth of prosthetics.

"I woke up about 9 a.m., left to do the usual things and my vehicle was missing," he said.

Miller was in an electrical accident in December 2003. His arms were amputated below his elbow. Since then, he's been using prosthetic arms.

"These arms gave me my life back again, and without them I'm useless again," Miller said.
