OCALA, Fla., May 12 (UPI) -- A pair of siblings from Florida face charges for allegedly stealing cases of Frito-Lay brand chips from a factory, officials said.

Darren L. Hagerman, 25, and Jessica L. Huggard, 22, who are brother and sister, were pulled over by police at about 11:30 p.m. Thursday after officers saw a young child jumping around in the backseat, a Marion County (Fla.) Sheriff's Office news release stated.

Then, when approached the vehicle, they noticed it was packed with Frito-Lay brand chips, the release said.

When being interviewed by police, Hagerman said he and his sister "got the chips from the dumpster."

However, factory workers said the gate to the facility had been locked. A deputy later found that Hagerman had a master key that worked on the gate lock at factory, the release said.

Hagerman and Huggard were arrested and charged with burglary and grand theft.

The child was put in the custody of relatives.
