Police found the raw hot dogs strewn about a Bridgewater home, where a Labrador resided.

Police traced the hot dogs to a supermarket and officers used surveillance video to identify a suspect.

 Ronald Elizondo, of Raritan Borough, along with Franklin Township residents Adrian McKoy and Tyshinue Haskins, are charged with burglary, conspiracy to commit burglary and other offenses.

Somerset County’s prosecutor believes the guns were the target of the heist.
