Reward Offered for Info on Assault and Robbery at Gas Station

Licking County Crime Stoppers is offering up to a $1,000 reward for anyone with information leading to an arrest in a robbery and assault at a gas station in Etna Township.  The Licking County Sheriff’s office reports, on June, 10 around 11:50 p.m., a man and woman entered the Speedway on the 9700 block of Etna-Hazelton Rd (Ohio 310) and were seen leaving the store with a number of items they had not paid for. An employee followed the suspects out of the store and approached the man. According to witnesses, the man pushed and grabbed the employee.  The suspects then fled in what was described as a white pick-up truck.

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.
