City Officials Estimate Baltimore Riots Will Cost $20M

BALTIMORE (WJZ)-- As the city deals with a surge in violence, it's also left with a bill for $20-million dollars which is the the cost of last month's riots.

According to our media partner, The Baltimore Sun, the $20-million includes overtime pay for police and firefighters, destruction to city-owned property and money owed to jurisdictions that sent resources to Baltimore -- such as Washington, D.C. and Pennsylvania.

The expenses will go before the board of estimates on Wednesday.
