Crime Stoppers $$ Reward for Mall Theft

Licking County Crime Stoppers is offering up to a $1,000 reward for anyone that has information leading to an arrest in a theft at Indian Mound Mall in Heath.

The Heath Police Department says on July 17 at approximately 8:30 p.m. a theft occurred at the Sears store.

The suspect is a white male with a tattoo on the right side of his neck, and what appears to be a star shaped tattoo on his right hand. A picture of the suspect was taken by a store surveillance camera.

Anyone with information on this crime is urged to call the Licking County Crime Stoppers at 740-349-6888 or 1-888-488-9058. A special coding system protects the identity of the caller but allows for the reward to be issued at a later time.

Crime Stoppers also takes calls from persons with information about any felony. Information leading to the arrest and indictment of a felony suspect could qualify the caller for a reward as determined by the Crime Stoppers’ Board. Crime Stoppers is a non-profit organization. Reward money comes from private individuals, businesses, and foundations that see Crime Stoppers as an integral tool in the community’s fight against crime. Tax-deductible donations can be sent to: Licking County Crime Stoppers, Inc., P.O. Box 304, Newark, OH 43058-0304.
