Honest Pest Control Service Technicians Discover and Turn in More than $10,000

An Assured Environments pest control service team was preparing an apartment for an upcoming bed bug treatment when one of the technicians found over $10,000 in cash and valuables stashed on the top shelf of a closet. The crew didn’t even know how much money was in the envelopes; they just turned everything in.

When they found out the amount later, they couldn’t believe it.

An Assured Environments’ pest control service team recently discovered and turned in more than $10,000 that had been hidden in an Upper East Side apartment, exemplifying the true meaning behind the company’s trusted pest control credence. The employee-owned Assured Environments is the largest pest control management company in the New York area, assisting clients with all areas of pest control management, particularly bed bugs, cockroaches, rodents, bird control, trash chute cleaning, ants, bat removal and fly removal.

The Assured Environments crew was preparing the apartment for an upcoming bed bug treatment when one of the technicians found the money stashed on the top shelf of a closet. The money—which was inside two envelopes placed beneath stacks of clothes—was discovered along with watches, jewelry and a lockbox. “The crew didn’t even know how much money was in the envelopes; they just turned them in,” Service Director Suad Kertebijev said, recounting the details of the unusual event. “When they found out the amount later, they couldn’t believe it.”

The cash belonged to an elderly woman who had hidden it in the closet years ago and forgotten it was even there. While it is unclear why the tenant initially concealed the money in the apartment or how long it had been there, one thing is certain: The woman—who understandably prefers to remain anonymous—was ecstatic over the good-Samaritan-style deed carried out by the Assured Environments technician. The technician said he didn’t hesitate returning the cash because it was simply the right thing to do, according to Kertebijev.

Assured Environments’ Service Manager Angel Quinones, who was present when the valuables were found, is not in the least surprised by the technician’s honesty and integrity. “We have been the tri-state area’s most trusted pest control solutions provider since 1934,” Quinones said. “Our serviceman’s willingness to return the money to its rightful owner demonstrates the high standards our company upholds to serve the needs of our customers. Our clients can rest assured that we will look out for their best interest.”
