AUGUSTA, Ga.---He's a fixture in downtown Augusta, but without his carts to sell hot dogs, he is going to have a tough time making a living.

Martin Rodriguez, owner of Riverdogs Express, says he came in Saturday to get his stand set up for the weekend, and it was gone, trailer and all.

Deputies tell him they suspect the thief is probably an out-of-towner because you can't do much with a stolen hot dog stand.

Rodriguez says all he can do is start over.

If you have any information on the stolen hot dog carts, call the Richmond County Sheriff's Office.

    This is an unfortunate example of where we're headed. This standup gentleman trying to make an honest and exceptional livelihood for himself (my family and I have often enjoyed his tasty dogs and good manner while downtown), and some worthless dreg trashes his means with relative impunity. I will put a prayer in for Mr. Rodriguez's business to rise up better than before. We should wonder if this thief has a family.
