Dog the Bounty Hunter 'grants' culprit 48 hours to surrender after his late wife's things are burgled from store
The official Dog and Beth merchandise store was robbed on August 1 and the police released the video of a suspect
Dog the Bounty Hunter star Duane Chapman has called out the burglar who broke into a Colorado business he owns and stole a bunch of merchandise and items. Some of the items stolen belonged to Chapman's late wife Beth. Chapman has called upon the person to turn himself in.
Chapman told reporters in the Denver suburb of Edgewater that he would ask the police not to press charges if the person involved surrenders. Chapman shared, "The guy has 48 hours to call me and ask for forgiveness." Chapman was seen making a speech outside his damaged store as the authorities released surveillance video of the suspect. Chapman also revealed that the stolen items included the bounty-hunting gear of Beth who had succumbed to cancer in June.
In a statement obtained by Fox on Friday, Chapman said, "The official Dog and Beth merchandise store was robbed on Thursday. Not only did the thieves take thousands of dollars of clothing, these criminals took priceless personal belongings of our beloved Beth, including tributes to her kindly left by our amazing fans. We are working with our friends in law enforcement to find these perpetrators, and are offering a cash reward to anyone who provides information about their identity. To whoever did this, you better watch out. Dog is coming for you."
He shared that he is leaving the case to the police. According to Police Chief John Mackey, the suspect was carrying a large backpack. He was in the store for a brief time and left without anything in his hands. The police are of the opinion that some of the merchandise could already be up for sale online. A passerby first saw the broken glass door early Tuesday at the business. Chapman's business is located on a busy street bordering Denver.
Employees are still accounting for what was taken. Inside the store, a few racks of hoodies and t-shirts were empty while a computer and cash register were found dumped in a pile.
