NEW YORK (AP) — Police say three men hoping to find discarded valuables in New York City’s hot and putrid sewer system have been arrested — after coming out empty-handed.

Two of them were nabbed after emerging from a manhole in Brooklyn’s East Flatbush neighborhood Thursday.

Police say the third suspect, a part-time employee with the city Department of Environmental Protection, was accused of uncovering the manhole to let the two inside.

Police say Marquise Evans told authorities he let David Hannibal and Damion Nieves, both of Brooklyn, into the sewers to search for discarded merchandise like jewelry.

All three were charged with criminal trespassing. Evans was suspended and faces additional charges of criminal facilitation and reckless endangerment.

Authorities say the men surfaced after several hours crawling through the sewers.

It wasn’t clear if they had lawyers who could comment on their behalf.
