Fla. Siblings Charged In Chips Theft

OCALA, Fla. (AP) — A central Florida brother and sister have been arrested after a deputy found a van overflowing with bags of chips that were apparently taken from a Frito-Lay factory.

The deputy pulled the siblings over early Friday after seeing a child jumping around in the backseat.

Twenty-five year-old Darren Hagerman says he and his sister, 22-year-old Jessica Huggard, have keys to the factories and travel between Marion and Citrus counties collecting expired bags of chips and reselling them to make a living.

The Ocala Star Banner reports a district manager told the deputy that only expired products would be in the trash. Otherwise, they would come from a truck or loading dock.

About half the packages in the siblings’ van had expired dates.

They were both charged with grand theft.
