Reward Offered for Information on Theft Suspect

Theft suspect at CVS Pharmacy on E. Main St. in Newark.
Licking County Crime Stoppers is offering up to a $1,000 reward for anyone with information leading to an arrest in a theft from a customer at a Newark pharmacy. The Newark Police Department reports around 11:15 a.m. on July 11, a female customer walked out of CVS at 379 E. Main St. and entered her vehicle. A male suspect then approached her vehicle, opened her vehicle door, stole her prescription medicine and then fled. The suspect is described as a white male, 20-40-years old, 5-10 to 6-feet tall, 220-260 pounds, with brown hair.

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.
