Reward Offered for Info on Video Camera Vandal

Suspect in vandalism and theft of video surveillance cameras.
Licking County Crime Stoppers is offering up to a $1,000 reward for anyone with information leading to an arrest in the theft and vandalism of business surveillance cameras in Newark. The Newark Division of Police reports since March, suspect(s) have either destroyed or stolen video surveillance cameras from at least five businesses located in Newark's east end, downtown, and west end.

The suspect photographed by one of the cameras, is described as a white male, in his late teens or early twenties, and wearing a hooded sweatshirt and jeans.
Anyone with information on these crimes 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.
