Manhunt cost Watertown Police $250,000, chief estimates

Watertown Chief Ed Deveau said Tuesday that the events that unfolded during the week of the Boston Marathon bombings will cost the police department upwards of $250,000 – but he hopes the town won’t have to bear the cost.

Deveau said he expects over $250,000 in overtime and equipment charges stemming from the incident, though he cautioned the final numbers “are not even close to being completed yet.”
