The internal investigation of three of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s top commanders has cost taxpayers $102,000 so far.

The county Board of Supervisors unanimously agreed Wednesday to reimburse Pinal County for the investigation, which was conducted by Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu on behalf of Arpaio.

Deputy Maricopa County Manager Sandi Wilson tells The Arizona Republic that the county might have to pay more if invoices continue to arrive.

The months-long investigation into activities of former Chief Deputy David Hendershott, ex-Deputy Chief Larry Black, and Capt. Joel Fox found evidence of mismanagement and possible criminal conduct.

Arpaio fired Hendershott and Black after learning of the results of the investigation. Fox remains on paid administrative leave as investigators re-examine allegations about his conduct.
