ORLANDO, Fla., Sept. 15 (UPI) -- Florida Judge Belvin Perry ruled Thursday Casey Anthony must pay more than $97,000 of the cost of the investigation into the death of her daughter, Caylee.

Perry ordered Anthony, acquitted in July in Casey's killing, to pay $61,500 to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, $10,300 to the Metropolitan Bureau of Investigation, $26,000 to the Orange County Sheriff's Office and $50 to the State Attorney's Office, the Orlando Sentinel reported.

The total was less than 20 percent of what prosecutors had sought.

Law enforcement officers searched for Caylee Marie Anthony from July 15 to Sept. 29, 2008. The costs enumerated "are reasonably related to the investigative work provided as a result of Defendant providing false information as to the location of her daughter, Caylee Anthony, and making other misrepresentations to law enforcement," Perry wrote.

Failure to pay could lead to the suspension of Anthony's driver's license and a referral to a collection agency, the newspaper said.
