COLUMBUS, Ohio — Former Police Sgt. Craig Lee injured his hip in a 2005 Red, White & Boom melee involving gang members. At the time, he had no idea that the injury that ended his 24-year law-enforcement career would open the door to a second calling as a cookie maker.
Now, Lee is known as "the cookie cop," and his small-but-growing baking business is attracting customers who crave more healthful kinds of cookies.
Lee''s chocolate-chip and oatmeal cookies contain no trans fats or white flour and are made with dark chocolate, oil containing omega-3 fatty acids and Tahitian noni juice, a liquid dietary supplement.
