DELTONA, Fla.-- A pest contractor is accused of looking for valuables instead of bugs.

Deputies in Volusia County arrested 45-year-old Kenneth Hall after they say he was seen on surveillance video stealing items from a home.

Authorities set up the sting after receiving reports that Hall had stolen items from two other homeowners.

In one instance, a wedding band and diamond ring were stolen, while cash was stolen in the other incident.

A security camera pointed into a closet captured Hall searching through dresser drawers and luggage before he allegedly stole jewelry and a gift card.

Hall faces four counts of grand theft, felony narcotics possession and possession of drug paraphernalia.
