A Nashville pest control employee has been charged with theft after police say he was stealing from his clients.

FlexSol Packaging Corp. in East Nashville and U.S. Smokeless Tobacco Company in downtown Nashville have come forward accusing the employee of taking tools from their properties.

Tools from one of the businesses were pawned at a local shop.

The missing tools are estimated to be worth about $8,000.

Lane was charged with felony theft on Monday night.
