Dorner Manhunt Cost San Bernardino Sheriff’s $550K

LOS ANGELES (KTLA) — The six-day manhunt for Christopher Dorner will cost the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department more than a half-million dollars.

Some 125 deputies searched for the fugitive ex-cop, who killed four people to avenge his firing from the LAPD in 2009.

dorner-latestSheriff’s department spokeswoman Jodi Miller said the initial estimate for the search and investigation is $550,000.

Ten other agencies were involved in the manhunt. The LAPD says it has not yet determined its costs related to the search for Dorner.

Dorner was found dead in a burned cabin after a gun battle on Feb. 12.

Meantime, wounded Riverside police officer Andrew Tachias is out of the hospital.

Tachias and his training officer, Michael Crain, were ambushed by Dorner as they sat in their patrol car at a red light in the predawn hours of Feb. 7.

Crain, a 15-year veteran of the force, was killed in the attack.

Dorner’s first victims were an Irvine couple, Monica Quan and Keith Lawrence, according to police.

Quan’s father, a former LAPD captain, was involved in the review process that led to Dorner’s termination.

San Bernardino County sheriff’s Deputy Det. Jeremiah MacKay was killed in the final gun battle with Dorner at a cabin in the Big Bear area.
