Two NYC workers arrested in separate incidents over the weekend

Police on Sunday announced two city employees had been arrested, including a housing employee who was caught with an open liquor bottle and a lit joint at a NYCHA building.

Robert Magas, 23, was found with an open bottle of Hennessy cognac, a smoking marijuana cigarette, a bag of weed and a bag allegedly containing two OxyContin pills at the Tompkins Houses on Tomkins Ave. near Floyd St. in Bedford-Stuyvesant shortly before 10 p.m. on Saturday, police said.

It was not clear if he was working at the time or if he was assigned to that housing development.

Magas was charged with drinking in public and criminal possession of marijuana and a controlled substance.
