No way. But he could have something important that Voldemort doesn't realize he got.

When Mr. and Mrs. Weasley were at Hogwarts, a man called Apollyon Pringle was the caretaker (GoF, The Third Task, p. 535 BE). I assume that they were younger than Voldemort, so Filch wasn't at Hogwarts when Tom Riddle attended. But the contents of his office aren't necessarily his own collections. There might be stuff which his predecessors confiscated. Which would make it even more plausible that Filch doesn't know about it.

If you want to know what a man's like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.
