A Waltham public works employee who had been on paid administrative leave has been removed from the city's payroll, according to Waltham Personnel Director Kristen Murphy. 

Caira was arrested in August on charges he was dealing cocaine and heroin during his duties as a city worker. Caira is scheduled to return to court on Jan. 13 for a hearing, according to the Middlesex County District Attorney's Office. 

Murphy said Caira was removed from the payroll recently under an agreement involving a Waltham city attorney. Murphy declined to elaborate on the agreement's details. 

Typically, city employees accused of crimes are placed on paid leave until a grand jury indicts them. If a grand jury indicts the employee, the worker is removed the payroll. Caira has not been indicted. 

Since being placed on paid leave, Caira has received $18,638.69, according to city payroll record. His last pay check was on Nov. 27.
