China Captured U.S. Underwater Drone

China captured an underwater drone from the U.S. Navy. The drone was returned five days later. The Pentagon said the drone cost $150,000 and did not contain sensitive information. The article suggested that China tried to challenge Pres. Trump. Whether the drone contained anything of significant value may not have mattered to China. China possibly cared more about ridiculing Pres. Trump as an ineffective head of state than acquiring anything of significant value. Do you think the United States could recover damages for, at least, trespass to chattels?
