Dog the Bounty Hunter is taking the pilfering of his late wife’s items extremely personal, and he has a message for those involved: “Dog is coming for you.”
In a statement to The Blast, Dog addresses the burglary that went down at his family story in Edgewater, CO.
“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,” he explained.
In the immediate hours after the crime went down, Dog says, “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.”
He has a strong message to the criminals, announcing, “To who ever did this, you better watch out. Dog is coming for you.”
We’re told the criminals specifically targeted a makeshift memorial for Beth that had been erected after her death, and contained personal items.
According to photos taken at the scene, it appears the criminal smashed through the front door for the grab and go.
The damage was noticed later by a store employee and the Edgewater Police Dept were called around 7:30 PM.
Police talked to the Chapman family, and they are logging the stolen items. Investigators are asking the public for any assistance in video or surveillance footage that may have captured the break-in.
Police also tell us they received their first call about suspicious activity near the property at 1:05 AM on July 30. Officers were unable to get in contact with Dog at the time, but secured the business.
On Thursday, Dog’s team got in touch with the police department and reported the burglary.
The Blast obtained exclusive audio from the police dispatch as officer’s were informed about the crime.
We’re told the situation is currently under investigation.
After we posted the story, Dog told the public that he was offering a “LARGE” cash reward for any information leading to the arrest of those involved in the burglary.
