The bill for evicting the "Occupy Richmond" protestors

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - We now know the bill for breaking up the 'Occupy Richmond' protest in Kanawha Plaza.

Last Sunday night police and public works crews came in and forced demonstrators out of the park.

NBC12 investigated and found out that eviction cost tax dollars more than $17,600.

Most of that, nearly $11,000 for police overtime expenses.
