Reward Offered for Info on Crimes at Johnstown Schools

Licking County Crime Stoppers is offering up to a $1,000 reward for anyone with information leading to arrests in break-ins at two schools in Johnstown-Monroe Local School District. The Johnstown Police Department reports overnight on June 3, suspect(s) broke into Oregon Elementary School located at 125 N. Oregon St., and Adams Middle School located at 80 W. Maple St.

The suspect(s) stole cash and two iPad minis from an office at Adams Middle School, and set off a fire extinguisher at Oregon Elementary School.

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.
