It looks like the State Department of Emergency Management won't pick up the tab for the manhunt for double-murder suspect Scott Eizember.

Creek County's Emergency Management Director says the state department turned down a request for more than $205,000. The department says the costs were not significant enough to require supplemental state assistance.

Creek County says the Eizember manhunt went well over its budgeted funds.
