Court Street Standoff costs $46,000

The cost of the standoff on court street is nearly 50 thousand dollars.  Police say the 27 hour standoff that happened two weeks ago involved nearly 40 officers on scene.  Deputy Chief JP Levesque says despite the extra costs he believes it was money well spent.  The money adds to budget problems with the police force which is already looking at over 400 thousand dollars in the red.
