Dog the Bounty Hunter star Duane “Dog” Chapman is “devastated” after a reported burglary at his Colorado store.
Not only did the thieves allegedly lift new merchandise, but they also took personal items that belonged to Dog’s late wife, Beth Chapman. A source told Entertainment Tonightthat Dog is “distraught,” especially considering he’s still mourning Beth, who died just over a month ago.
The Chapman family confirmed the news in a statement provided to CountryLiving.com by a family spokesperson, as seen below.
"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 who ever did this, you better watch out. Dog is coming for you."
Dog also reposted an article about the incident—the damage of which is reportedly in the thousands—on Twitter. “The Bible says it is an unforgivable sin to steal from the dead,” he wrote alongside the link. “LARGE CASH REWARD FOR ANY INFORMATION FIR WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS !!!”

This comes just days after Dog had to warn his followers about internet scammers impersonating him and Beth on social media. The fake accounts are allegedly asking for money, which the Dog’s Most Wantedstar insisted he would never do.
Our thoughts continue to go out to Dog, and we hope he recovers Beth’s items soon.
