Reward Offered on Credit Card Theft

     Licking County Crime Stoppers is offering up to a $1,000 reward for anyone that has information leading to an arrest in the theft of a credit card. The Heath Police Department reports on June 12, a Florida woman contacted Heath Police to report her credit card had been used by someone to purchase $1,350 in merchandise at the Heath Walmart. The woman said she’d never been to Ohio, and didn’t know how the perpetrators were able to get her credit card information. Walmart officials were able to get store surveillance camera pictures of the suspect (see photos below).

     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.
