NEW YORK (WCBS 880) — A foreman on the Long Island Railroad, who pulled down nearly $300,000 in overtime in 2017, was reportedly caught at home during work hours.

A report obtained by the New York Post says Raymond Murphy was busted by the MTA inspector general at or near his home 10 times when he was supposed to be on the clock.

He was allowed to retire and collect his full pension before disciplinary action was completed.

The MTA says it plans to sue him for around $10,000 for hours he didn’t work.

Murphy did not offer apologies to a Post reporter outside his home yesterday, saying, “I’m retired now and that’s all I have to say.”
