Up to $1,000 Reward for Theft from Heath Store

Two suspects enter Dollar General in Heath.
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 Heath store. The Heath Police Department reports around 10:30 a.m. on Dec. 17, a man and woman stole sweatshirts off a sidewalk display at Dollar General at 639 S. 30th Street. The suspects fled in a tan Toyota truck. The suspects’ pictures were taken by a store surveillance camera. The male suspect was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, red sweatpants, and a white hat. The female suspect was wearing a red sweater with a white surgical mask hanging loosely around her neck.  

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.
