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

Newark Police report that on September 5th someone broke into a home in the 1500 block of W. Main Street while the residents were in bed and stole a wallet, cash, and credit cards.

Police say the residents were awakened by noises and one saw a man running through the backyard area.

The suspect is believed to have fled in a car.

Anyone with information on this crime is being urged to call the Licking County Crime Stoppers at (740) 349-6888  or (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.
