One Oklahoma Easter Bunny was a different kind of “hopped up” over the holiday weekend.

Tahlequah police arrested a woman named Carolyn Ross after a police dog sniffed out two bags of meth packaged inside a stuffed Easter Bunny doll she received in the mail. Tahlequah police were tipped off by Tulsa County deputies as they were arriving at her home and intercepted them by posing as deliverymen. Ross admitted she knew the drugs were inside and that she was supposed to redistribute them after receiving them in the mail.

“We’ve intercepted narcotics in the mail before,” Tahlequah Police Chief Nate King told Fox23. But, he added, “The Easter Bunny, I thought, was a strange touch.”

Police pulled about a pound of meth from the bunny, packaged inside two condoms and placed within a hollow cavity inside the doll. The street value of the drugs seized is about $30,000. “It’s not the prize egg that we want in Tahlequah,” King said.
