Dog and Beth are at it again! Duane ‘Dog’ Chapman and Beth Chapman, stars of Dog the Bounty Hunter and the new show Dog’s Most Wanted, have caught yet another fugitive who is one of the country’s most wanted. The two were filming for the new show when they released a press statement that they tracked down Leonard Trujillo, Jr. in Rocky Ford, Colorado.

“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,” Dog said in the statement.

The press release statement went on to say that during the “12-day epic manhunt across southern Colorado, Dog and his team tracked Trujillo who was wanted for multiple violent offenses, and has a mile-long rap sheet including armed robbery, assault on a police officer, bank robbery, drug charges, and forgery.

“Capturing the suspect Trujillo also lead to the arrest of four others. Trujillo was taken to Arkansas Valley Medical Center to be treated for minor injuries he sustained while trying to elude Dog’s team.”


“It was also a family affair as Garry Boy Chapman, Dog’s youngest son, had a hand in helping his dad apprehend the suspect. It was a tough fight but Dog, a Colorado native, could not be shook by the seasoned fugitive. No one has more experience that Dog Chapman when it comes to chasing dangerous criminals!

Just ahead of the bust, Dog’s wife tweeted out that “someone’s about to have a very very bad day.” More like a very very great day for the Chapmans and for all of us!

Chapman himself says, “Crime in America is skyrocketing! Criminals are finding it easier to avoid the system. With more and more dangerous criminals running the streets the time couldn’t be better for the World’s Greatest Network to bring back the World’s Greatest Bounty Hunter. Fugitives beware!”
