Reward Offered for Information Leading to Arrest in Recent Arson Fires

Licking County Crime Stoppers is offering up to a $1,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in numerous fires that have been intentionally set this year in Licking County. Anyone with information on these fires is urged to call the Licking County Crime Stoppers at 740-349-6888 and also indicate if they want their information forwarded to the Ohio Blue Ribbon Arson Committee for a possible additional reward. The Ohio BRAC Reward Fund is a separate program, and depending on the information, can offer an additional reward of up to $5,000.

Crime Stoppers also takes calls from persons with information about any serious crime. If you have information on any other serious crimes, please call Licking County Crime Stoppers at 740-349-6888.  A special coding system protects the identity of the caller but allows for the reward to be issued at a later time

Reward money comes from private individuals, businesses, and foundations that see Crime Stoppers as an integral tool in the community’s fight against crime.
