BAY CITY, Mich. (AP) - An effort by police officers in Michigan to keep old bakeries going is expanding to two more cities this spring.

The Ludington Daily News and radio station WSGW report a Cops & Doughnuts bakery is opening Sunday in the former McDonald’s Bakery in the western Michigan community of Ludington. Another one is scheduled to open by the end of June at the former Sutherland’s Bakery in Bay City on the other side of the state.

Both bakeries were more than a century old.

Cops & Doughnuts began in 2009 when officers in the mid-Michigan community of Clare pooled their money to save an old downtown bakery. There’s also a Gaylord location. Vice President Al “Bubba” White says plans call for expanding outside of Michigan.
