Engagement ring stolen during pest control service

“An Aurora man has been charged with felony theft and is accused of stealing jewelry worth over $3,000 from the victim’s home while performing pest control service. The victim noticed that her gold engagement ring with a 1-carat diamond was missing, and she suspected a pest control employee who was in her house recently. Detectives searched through LeadsOnline and found that the suspect had recently sold a similar ring. Detectives recovered the stolen ring and obtained an arrest warrant for the suspect.”
