Reward Offered for Info on Thefts from Vehicles in LC & Misuse of Credit Cards

Licking County Crime Stoppers is offering up to a $1,000 reward for anyone with information leading to an arrest in the theft and use of credit/debit cards.  The Licking County Sheriff’s Office reports, between Aug. 9-13 suspect(s) broke into cars on the 1000 block of James Road SE and the 12000 block of Green Chapel Road and stole several items including credit/debit cards.  The suspect(s) used the cards at businesses in Canal Winchester and Columbus. 

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.

Tax-deductible donations can be sent to: Licking County Crime Stoppers, Inc., P.O. Box 304, Newark, OH 43058-0304.
