Cops probe report of ‘Dog the Bounty Hunter’ firm burglary


EDGEWATER, Colo. (AP) — Police in Colorado said Friday they are investigating a reported burglary of a business owned by “Dog the Bounty Hunter” reality TV star Duane “Dog” Chapman.

A passerby in the Denver suburb of Edgewater discovered a broken glass door Tuesday at a business that stocks merchandise that’s sold online. Police Cpl. Bob Brink said officers boarded the door after they couldn’t reach anyone affiliated with the business, called “Free as a Bird Bail Bond.”

Someone with the firm reported Thursday that merchandise and personal items had been stolen, Brink said Friday. As of Friday, police didn’t have a list of what is missing, and the investigation is still in its early stages, Brink said.

Chapman tweeted Friday that there is a “large cash reward” for any information about who is responsible.

The business is not open to the public. A telephone call to the business went unanswered Friday.

Chapman’s late wife and co-star, Beth Chapman, died in June at age 51 in Hawaii. She had battled cancer for about two years. Funeral services were held July 13 in her home state of Colorado.

The Chapmans starred in the A&E show for eight seasons until it was canceled in 2012. The show followed the couple as they apprehended people who avoided arrest warrants.

They later starred in Country Music Television’s “Dog & Beth: On the Hunt.” WGN America is in production on a new series featuring the couple called “Dog’s Most Wanted,” set to premiere September 4.
