Two City of Philadelphia employees must answer to accusations that they stole scrap metal and sold it for profit.

Surveillance video released Thursday shows a school district worker loading some of that scrap metal onto a truck. He then allegedly took it to a recycling center in Northeast Philadelphia and sold it.

A Streets Department employee is accused of doing the same thing, but selling it to a recycling center in North Philadelphia.

They came away with a combined total of nearly $2,600.

Authorities also showed off some of the scrap they seized from the two workers before it could be sold.

Both departments are deciding how to discipline the accused employees.
