The Licking County Crime Stoppers is offering up to a $1,000 reward for information on a jewelry theft in Newark.

Newark Police say Monday afternoon around 4:30 two suspects stole diamonds valued at nearly  $11,000 from an unlocked jewelry case at HL Art  Jewelers.

Police say a store employee observed the theft and called 9-1-1.

The suspects left the store and drove off in a car described as a Gray Pontiac Bonneville.

Both suspects are described as light skinned black males between 40 and 50 years old, well dressed and wearing glasses.

Police say the suspects may not be from the Newark area and a similar theft occurred in August at  Pugh’s Jewelry Store in Zanesville.

Anyone with information on this crime should contact Licking County Crime Stoppers at (740) 349-6888 or 1-888-488-9058 .
