NY police hunt for stolen weiner stand

ORANGEBURG, N.Y. (AP) — Police in a suburb northwest of New York City are searching for a stolen hot dog stand.  

Owner Fred Martucci tells the Journal News that he’s devastated over the loss of “Fred’s Franks.” He used the 10-foot-long, 7-foot-wide stainless steel trailer to support his family in Orangeburg for more than a year.

Orangetown Police Detective Sgt. George Garrecht says the hot dog heist happened on the evening of Sept. 30. Three men pulled into a parking lot, cut the trailer’s locks and cables, hitched it to their pickup truck and drove north on Route 303.

Police have viewed surveillance footage. But they have a limited description of the suspects and vehicle, because it happened on a rainy night.
