(CBS) - To be frank, police didn't need a dog to follow this hot trail.

Police in Shawnee, Okla. say they located the suspect in the break-in at a Sonic Drive-in early Friday morning by following a path of foot-long hot dogs, buns, chicken breasts and corn dogs leading from the restaurant to a house where they found 18-year-old Dakota Lasley.

When officers arrived at the scene of the break-in, they saw broken glass and a man inside the restaurant. Police say the man ran down the street where officers followed him into a house two blocks south.

After entering an open door, police say they found Lasley in a bedroom with fresh blood on his hands and shards of broken glass on the soles of his shoes.

A police report says Lasley told officers, he "could have blacked out from drinking and done something stupid." Lasley was arrested and charged with second-degree burglary and obstruction. He is being held at the Pottawatomie County Public Safety Center in Shawnee.

At this point, it is unknown if any condiments were taken along with the hotdogs.
