LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Known around the country as the "donut boy," Floridian Tyler Carach, 10, is traveling around the country thanking the men and women of law enforcement with coffee and donuts.

The 10-year-old stopped by the Louisville Metro Police Department on Thursday morning, donuts in hand.

Tyler's mission began two years ago when he came across four deputies in a store. He bought them mini donuts with his own allowance money to say 'thank you' for their service.

"Police officers risk their lives - for me, my family and friends," Tyler said.

Tyler said he has visited 31 states to pass out over 60,000 donuts.
