The Newark Police Department reports between Nov. 15-16 suspect(s) entered the home located in the first block of S. 27th St. and stole ten guns including a Calico Liberty 9mm with 5 clips and a HiPoint 9mm with scope and 6 clips.

Anyone with information on this crime is urged to call 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.
