Duane 'Dog' Chapman and Wife Beth Capture Violent Criminal after a 12-Day Manhunt
On Wednesday, May 8, 2019, the famous couple was able to bring Trujillo Jr. to justice after a 12-day chase that took place in several cities and involved multiple car chases.
The announcement was made by Beth, who took to her official Facebook page to share the news with her fans and followers by posting a photo of the criminal.
In the post, the 51-year-old asked people not to bond Trujillo Jr. "under any circumstance" and described him as "violent," an opinion shared by her husband.
A VERY DANGEROUS INDIVIDUAL
After capturing Trujillo Jr., Dog said:
“This guy’s record is horrendous. He has terrorized this peaceful town enough. He tried to run – but you can’t hide from me! We are making America safe again, one city at a time.”
ALL IN THE FAMILY
Dog and Beth's team, known as the "Dirty Dozen," chased the outlaw across Southern Colorado and busted him in Rocky Ford. After being captured, Trujillo Jr. was reportedly transported to Arkansas Valley Medical Center to be treated for minor injuries.
The hunt had a happy ending and it was also a very special one because it marked Garry Boy Chapman's debut in the bounty hunting business. According to Beth, their son was a great help in bringing Trujillo Jr. down.
The criminal, who is currently being held in El Paso County, was wanted for several violent offenses, including assault on a police officer, armed robbery and bank robbery.

NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH ON THE LOOKOUT
Two weeks ago, Dog was in Pueblo, Colorado, looking for Trujillo Jr. and took the opportunity to ask for the community's help. In a video shared online, the 66-year-old could be seen holding photos of the suspect with the word "wanted."
At the time, the experienced bounty hunter was surrounded by Pueblo natives, who gathered there to join Dog in the search, most of them holding the same photos as him.
