Up to a $1,000 Reward Offered for Info on Home Burglary

Licking County Crime Stoppers is offering up to a $1,000 reward for anyone with information leading to an arrest in a home burglary while the victims were in the home. The Newark Police Department reports overnight on Aug. 15, someone entered a home on N. Williams St. and stole cash, jewelry, and electronic items while the victims were asleep in the home.

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.
