Fort Myers Carpet Cleaner Charged With Felony Grand Theft

Before inviting ANY contractor into your home – know who you’re dealing with.

Reprint from The News-Press January 8, 2016…

“An employee of a Naples carpet cleaning business was charged with felony grand theft after he admitted stealing a $2,700 necklace from a home where he was working.

Jason Manning, 25, of Fort Myers, turned himself into the Collier County Sheriff’s Office on Thursday after the woman from whom he stole the necklace decided to go forward with a criminal complaint.

A CCSO report said Manning was in the victim’s home on Dec. 15 and took the necklace, then pawned it the next day and used the proceeds to help support a heroin addiction. The victim had said she would not pursue charges if the necklace could be returned, but chose to do so when the pawn shop said the piece had already been melted down.”

We’ve all heard the horror stories of contractors stealing from customers, contractors employing sex offenders who have access to the most private places of your home (your bedroom and those of your children) and of contractors casing a home just to return later and burglarize it.  Before inviting a “stranger” into your home, do your due diligence.  Check out the company, its reputation and association with consumer review organizations.

Top level companies background check their employees on an annual basis by using outside vendors who specialize in national criminal verification.  In addition, quality businesses will have associations with Angie’s List (who independently run background checks on the owners of companies) and the Better Business Bureau who monitors companies on an annual basis.  These same businesses will also have national certifications attesting to their quality and service.
