Salami "gun" causes German police alert
Fri Jan 31,11:57 AM ET


BERLIN (Reuters) - A man who mistook a salami for an automatic pistol has triggered a major police operation in southern Germany, involving 10 police cars and a helicopter.

The man alerted police that he had seen three men handling a gun in a car at a motorway service area. Police cars, dogs and a helicopter chased the car and held up the men, only to identify the "weapon" as a salami.

"Behind the dirty windows of the car, the man had mistaken the salami for a gun," a police spokesman in Traunstein said. "The men in the car had probably passed the sausage through the car."

The salami was returned to its owners, he said.
