EDGEWATER, Colo. (AP) — The Latest on a burglary of a business owned by reality TV star Duane “Dog” Chapman.

Reality TV star Duane “Dog” Chapman is calling on the person who stole show merchandise and items belonging to his late wife to turn himself in.

Chapman told reporters Friday he’ll ask police not to press charges if the person surrenders in the next 48 hours.

Chapman spoke outside his damaged storefront in the Denver suburb of Edgewater as police released surveillance video of a man suspected in Monday night’s burglary.

Chapman says the stolen items included the bounty hunting gear of his late wife, Beth Chapman, who died in June of cancer. But the star of the “Dog the Bounty Hunter” franchise says he’s leaving the case to police.

Chapman’s business is on a busy street that borders Denver.

Police in Colorado are investigating a reported burglary of a business owned by “Dog the Bounty Hunter” reality TV star Duane “Dog” Chapman.

Police in the Denver suburb of Edgewater say a passer-by early Tuesday discovered a broken glass door of a business that stocks merchandise that’s sold online.

Cpl. Bob Brink says police boarded the door after they couldn’t reach anyone affiliated with the business.

He says someone with the firm reported Thursday that merchandise and personal items had been stolen.

Brink said Friday that police don’t have a list of what is missing. The investigation is still in its early stages.

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