Reward Offered on Info for Generator Battery Thefts in Newark

Licking County Crime Stoppers is offering up to a $1,000 reward for anyone with information leading to an arrest in multiple battery thefts from businesses in Newark. The Newark Police Department reports between Aug-Nov. 2014 more than 70 vehicle and generator batteries have been stolen from a number of businesses including Layton Services on E. Main St., Russ’s Auto Sales on Union St., and Weekley Electric on Mt. Vernon Rd.
Anyone with information on these crimes is urged to call 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.
