"I like his work ethic," Hartman said of Cole.
Cole, 50, expects his Accredited Detective Agency to open soon.

In the latter, Cole often convinced dangerous drug dealers he was looking to buy.
"I'd have a dealer say, 'You're a narc.' I'd just say, 'Yeah yeah,' " Cole said."They'd laugh at me and still sell me the drugs."
