When a New York City public housing employee overhauled her kitchen with stolen equipment, she even took the cabinets — but didn’t stop there.
She stole the kitchen sink, too.
This is according to charges filed in Queens Criminal Court, which say that Eva Torres, who worked for the New York City Housing Authority, stole eight kitchen cabinets, a white refrigerator and a sink from a public housing complex in East Harlem.
The property taken from the housing authority, also known as Nycha, was worth over a thousand dollars, officials said.
“This Nycha supervisor misused her position to give her personal kitchen a makeover, realizing the renovation with stolen equipment and an appliance from Nycha and denying residents what was rightfully theirs, according to the charges,” the commissioner of the city’s Department of Investigation, Margaret Garnett, said in a statement.
Ms. Torres, 42, of Queens, was arrested Thursday and charged with criminal possession of stolen property, which is a felony, and possession of stolen property, a misdemeanor. She could face up to four years in prison on the first charge and up to one year on the second.
The housing authority called Ms. Torres’s actions “reprehensible” in a statement on Thursday and said it would respond to them with “swift and aggressive action.”
On Friday, Ms. Torres resigned from her position at Nycha.
The charges against Ms. Torres mark the second time this week that housing authority employees have been thrust into the spotlight by the Department of Investigation.
On Tuesday, the department released the results of a monthslong investigation sparked by claims that Nycha workers were throwing alcohol-fueled sex parties on the job. The investigation found no signs of the sex parties, but it did find that managers at a housing project in the Bronx routinely drank and held parties on the job, had sexual relationships with their subordinates, and threatened many of them.

The housing agency has also come under fire recently for years of mismanagement, its decrepit housing stock, poor living conditions and an overall sense that it is in crisis. By the end of last year, the federal government was considering taking control of the buildings Nycha manages.
Ms. Torres’s actions, as described by the criminal complaint filed against her, were smaller in scale and far less lurid.
Ms. Torres, who oversaw the caretakers responsible for services including garbage, landscaping and snow removal at the Robert F. Wagner Houses in East Harlem, first came to investigators’ attention in September. A tip accused her of using Nycha equipment to renovate the kitchen in her Queens apartment, the Department of Investigation said.
While looking into the claim, court documents said, investigators found a photo Ms. Torres posted on Facebook that showed her standing in front of kitchen cabinets that looked similar to the ones used in Nycha apartments.
The cabinets were crucial. Nycha orders its supply from a Canadian company that told investigators it had never sold them privately to anybody, including Ms. Torres, the court documents said.
When law enforcement officials went to her apartment, they discovered that seven of the cabinets had white labels with the address of the Wagner Houses on them, according to the criminal complaint.
The kitchen sink was also labeled with the address of a public housing apartment, and officials were able to match the serial numbers of the cabinets, sink and refrigerator to ones ordered by Nycha.
“While greed may not be a crime, funneling goods and products meant for the truly needy is,” Queens District Attorney Richard A. Brown said in a statement.B:
