On the list of Americans you probably really shouldn’t steal from, Dog the Bounty Hunter is pretty high.
Not as high as, say, Suge Knight, but still up there. He literally hunts down criminals for a living. And those people didn’t even wrong him personally.
But someone stole from Dog the Bounty Hunter — real name Duane Chapman. Someone burglarized Denver Dog House at 2547 Sheridan Blvd. in Edgewater, just a few weeks after Dog’s wife Beth Chapman died of cancer.
A Chapman family spokesperson said this in a statement:
“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.”
On his Facebook page, Dog wrote:
“The Bible says it is an unforgivable sin to steal from the dead. LARGE CASH REWARD FOR ANY INFORMATION ABOUT WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS !!!”
Edgewater Police Department officers responded to a call about suspicious activity at the shop at 1:05 a.m. Thursday but were unable to find a suspect or determine if anything had been stolen, according to a press release. Someone representing the business later called police to report the theft.
The department is investigating and asks for anyone with information, cell phone footage or security camera footage to contact them at 303-235-0500.
