REDDING, Calif. (AP) -- Sheriff's deputies in far Northern California say the operation that ended in the incineration of an explosive-laden mobile home cost the county more than $170,000.
Shasta County Sheriff Tom Bosenko disclosed the figure to the county's board of supervisors on Tuesday and said bills were still coming in. The costs included overtime and supplies.
The Record Searchlight of Redding (http://bit.ly/1dzZIUV ) reports that the county is considering putting a lien on the property to recover some of the money.
Authorities found more than 60 pounds of explosives at the Redding home on Feb. 6. after responding to an explosion that took off a resident's hand.
Deputies determined the explosives were extremely volatile and evacuated dozens of neighboring homes. They incinerated the home on Feb. 16.
