Licking County Crime Stoppers is offering up to a $1,000 reward for anyone with information leading to an arrest in a stolen debit card being used to purchase items in Newark. The Newark Police Department reports a male suspect used a debit card, that was stolen from a Newark woman, to make purchases on Aug. 10 at the Duke and Duchess on E. Main St. and Speedway on E. Main St.

Speedway store surveillance cameras took pictures of the suspect who is described as a black male, approximately 30-40 years old, between five-feet and six-feet tall, with black hair and brown eyes. He was driving a gold colored car, and wearing a shirt that read “Risk, Reward” on the back.

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.
