    It was high time for this bust. 

    Cops arrested a Chicago Transit Authority worker this weekend for dealing drugs on the job.

    Timothy Stovall, 34, of the 1800 block of South Hawthorne, was caught red-handed selling marijuana at the Wilson Red Line stop Saturday night, said Assistant Cook County's State's Attorney Sean O'Brien.

    Someone tipped off police to Stovall's alleged second job, the Sun-Times reports.

    Officers didn't find fare cards on the CTA worker but two kinds of green: $396 in cash and $700 worth of weed, said O'Brien.

    Stovall allegedly admitted pocketing $200 a day from his side hustle.

    He left lockup Sunday still wearing his CTA uniform for his first court appearance.

    A judge ordered him held on $30,000 bail.

    That comes up to about 15 days of dealing dope to be released.

    If he's convicted, his next stop could be prison.
