Four kilos of crisps in a bag the size of a travel bag: around 400 citizens from the district of Fürstenfeldbruck and nearby Munich were now able to enjoy this.

Olching – The bags were distributed during a food rescue operation at the Olching train station.

Where the vast amounts of chips come from remains a mystery.

And also why a GPS tracker was hidden between the goods.

Stored and never picked up

An unknown person had stored the three and a half tons of potato chips at a forwarding agency in the Dachau district and never picked them up.

Therefore, the head of the forwarding agency made contact with the food rescuers from Olching via detours.

Last Thursday, the Olching food rescuers got the okay to pick up the 3.5 tons of crisps in Dachau the next day, says Katrin Schley.

With 20 other volunteer food rescuers, she and the founder, Daniela Schnagl-Vitak, arrived at the forwarding agency in Dachau.

They spent a day and a half loading the goods.

GPS tracker detected

Half of the 33 pallets of crisps went to the Dachau Foodsharing, the other half was loaded into private cars by the people of Olching.

"We took the big bags of crisps out of the boxes because they fit more into the car," says Daniela Schnagl-Vitak.

So far, this has always been done when rescuing large containers.

But suddenly the loading had to be stopped: "The forwarder's son discovered a GPS tracker between the bag of crisps and the box."

The forwarder said that it is very unusual that such a high-quality tracker is hidden in a comparatively cheap cargo.

The suspicion is obvious that drugs or counterfeit money should be smuggled here.

"In any case, someone left the chip bags worth 35,000 euros to protect something valuable," says the boss of the food rescuers.

Police sniffer dogs

The police came with sniffer dogs, which searched the boxes – without any result.

A short time later, the chips could be loaded further.

The food rescuers, which are registered as a non-profit company (gUG), organized the distribution of the unusually large bags of crisps via their online portal.

The last chips were distributed in Olching on Monday afternoon and evening.

"New Year's Eve is saved," says Florian Grabsch, one of the collectors, who also took a bag with him when it was distributed in Olching.

Ideas about what to do with the amount of potato chips are already circulating online, in the Olchinger Lebensmittelretter recipe group.

"A chip casserole or chips in chicken breading," says Katrin Schley and laughs.
