LIMA – Cops and doughnuts. They go together like … well, like cops and doughnuts.

It was all in good fun when the Allen County Sheriff’s Office held its first-ever doughnut-eating contest on Thursday morning.

Additionally, the event helped raise money to benefit the United Way of Allen County and to be put toward inter-departmental improvements at the sheriff’s office.

The contest was born after the United Way of Lima Allen County approached sheriff’s office administrators for support several months ago.

“We planned a joint fundraiser benefiting the Sheriff’s Office workout room and the United Way,” said public information officer Lt. Andre McConnahea. “So far, in total we raised $1,500 in sponsorships. Of that amount, $1,000 will be given to the United Way and $500 will be used on upgrades to our workout room.”

The winner of Thursday’s contest was Deputy Cory Lee (the 2017 Kewpee Hamburger Eating Champion) who consumed five glazed doughnuts in three minutes. Also participating were Deputy Cory Lee, Deputy Barry Friemoth, McConnahea, Corrections Officers Feraris Golden, Major Todd Mohler and Deputy Corey Hanjora.

“We looking forward to carrying on this event in the years to come,” McConnahea said.
