Albany -- A weekend fundraiser benefiting Georgia Special Olympic athletes ended in sweet success Sunday night.

Officers wrapped up this evening after spending the past three days on the roof of Krispy Kreme for the "Cops on Doughnut Shops" weekend.

At least one officer stayed on the roof since seven Friday morning, even through this weekend's rain and freezing temperatures.

This is the fourth year that Dougherty County and Albany law enforcement officers teamed up with Krispy Kreme for the fundraiser, and they say every year it gets bigger.

"We had a lot more volunteers, which made the whole thing go better because each year we collected more and more money. We had a goal of $10,000 and already exceeded that goal as off yesterday. We don't have a total yet, but we are sure it is more than we were hoping for," said Dougherty County Police, Lt. J.C. Phillips.

The money raised this weekend will help pay for the travel and hotel fees of athletes participating in the state's Special Olympics. The official grand total from this weekend's fundraiser will be announced later in the week.
