Duane Chapman, better known as Dog the Bounty Hunter has an estranged family member whoâ€™s now been accused of robbing a bank, according to Hawaii News Now.
35-year-old Nicole Gillespie, who is homeless, was arrested Sunday on suspicion of second-degree robbery for allegedly robbing Territorial Savings Bank in Honolulu.
Nicole had allegedly been seen on surveillance cameras entering the bank on September 3rd at around 8 a.m., then handing the teller a note. She was then seen fleeing on foot down Bishop Street.
Duane and Beth Chapman released a statement, saying:
â€œIt’s always difficult and disheartening when someone you knew as a child grows up and chooses a life of crime. That is the case with Nicole Gillespie, who has been accused of robbing the Territorial Savings Bank on Bishop Street on September 3rd. We have not seen â€˜Nickieâ€™ in over 10 years. Watching her on Crimestoppers left us all shocked and heartbroken.â€
