Reward Offered on Home Burglary

Licking County Crime Stoppers is offering up to a $1,000 reward for anyone with information leading to a burglary at a home in Licking County. The Licking County Sheriff's Office reports on July 11, someone entered a home in the 12000 block of Palmer Rd. in Reynoldsburg, and stole the following: seven guns, jewelry, electronics, and other items.

A neighbor's surveillance video camera shows what appears to be a red Dodge Intrepid, four-door, pulling into and exiting the victim's driveway on the day the crime occurred.

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.
