Reward offered for information on stolen credit card used at four area stores

Suspect at Dollar General in Heath.

Two suspects at Hibbett Sports in Heath.

Licking County Crime Stoppers is offering up to a $1,000 reward for anyone with information leading to an arrest in the use of stolen credit card information. The Heath Police Department reports a Newark woman's credit card information was stolen, and used to purchase over $900 worth of items on Aug. 28 at Hibbett Sports and Finish Line at Indian Mound Mall, Dollar General in Heath, and the Newark Walmart.

Store surveillance cameras at Hibbett Sports and Dollar General took pictures of the suspects, who are described as two thin black males.

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.
