$1,000 Reward Offered on Aggravated Robbery

     Licking County Crime Stoppers is offering up to a $1,000 reward for anyone that has information leading to an arrest in an aggravated robbery in Newark. The Newark Division of Police reports around 1:45 a.m. on Aug. 25, a woman was robbed by a man with a gun in front of her home on N. 25th St. The suspect fled with cash towards 23rd St.

     The suspect is described as a white male with facial hair, 23-30 years old, 5-8 to 6-0 tall, 150-180 pounds, brown hair, and wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt, jeans, and a dark colored bandana over his face.  He had a black handgun.

     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.
