(KMOV.com) - MSD workers allegedly taking it easy on the job were caught by a homeowner’s camera.

The pictures, taken Wednesday along Flora in Overland, apparently show a four man crew standing and not doing much.  Resident Joy Vehlewald said it went on for a couple hours.

"Only one guy was working, four men, one guy working, and the rest of them were just talking and laughing," she told News 4.

Vehlewald said one of the men did appear to spend a short time working on a manhole cover.

MSD spokesman Lance LeComb, said the picture is a concern.

“We are looking into it, we take this very seriously," LeComb said.

MSD equips all of its trucks with a GPS. The company told News 4 the crew in question was on Flora from 11:30 a.m. until 2:20 p.m.
