Federal prosecutors in Manhattan have subpoenaed pay records for a recently retired Long Island Rail Road official who has emerged as the MTA reigning overtime king — as well as more than a dozen other workers at the LIRR and New York City Transit, according to a new report.
Thomas Caputo, who retired recently as the LIRR’s chief measurement operator, raked in $344,147 in overtime for 2018 by logging 3,864 extra hours — bringing his total take to $461,646, according to data from the Empire Center.
The watchdog group also found that one LIRR track worker, Marco Pazmino, more than quadrupled his base salary last year, taking home $256,177 by working an eye-popping 4,157 hours in OT alone.
Three people with direct knowledge of the probe told the New York Times on the condition of anonymity that the feds have subpoenaed Caputo’s and the others’ pay records.
Prosecutors in the public corruption unit of the US Attorney’s office for the Southern District of New York are leading the inquiry, while the Queens District Attorney’s office has launched a separate probe along with the MTA’s inspector general, the Times reported.
