STRASBOURG, April 24 (AFP) - A man walking in a forest near here found 20 tonnes of gourmet meats wrapped in plastic and still edible, press reports said Sunday.  

The salami and cured hams, found Saturday morning, may have been dumped by thieves who wanted only to steal the truck that was carrying them, police said to the newspapers Dernieres Nouvelles d'Alsace and L'Alsace.  

Police have not yet found the owners of the gourmet haul, which appeared to be still edible and will be checked by health officials before being offered to local charity groups.
