Oklahoma police intercepted a mail package after it was sniffed out by a police dog and subsequently opened. The package contained a stuffed Easter bunny that was filled with $30,000 worth of meth. The festive drug deal landed one woman in jail and one pound of meth confiscated.
The Daily Mail reports that police were alerted to a mail package that potentially contained narcotics after a drug dog in Tulsa, Oklahoma, sniffed out the item. The package was opened by the Tulsa Police Department and contained a surprisingly festive drug deal. The package contained a white Easter bunny that looks like it belongs in a child’s Easter basket. However, this bunny was no ordinary rabbit. Instead, the bunny was filled with one pound of meth.
The meth was placed inside of two condoms that were then tied off at the end. The condoms were then inserted inside of the bunny and placed in the mail. The package was scheduled to be delivered in Tahlequah, Oklahoma, before the interception. The Tahlequah police were alerted to the contents of the package and the scheduled recipient of the package was arrested.
The police say that this isn’t the first time that drugs have been intercepted in the mail. However, they say that placing the drugs inside of the stuffed bunny was a “strange touch.”
“The Easter Bunny I thought was a strange touch. There were two condoms and meth stuffed inside the rabbit. It’s not the prize egg that we want in Tahlequah.”
According to WFTV, the meth-stuffed bunny was scheduled to be delivered to Carolyn Ross. When police officers questioned Ross about the package she admitted that she had been waiting for it to arrive. Upon further questioning, the woman admitted to knowing that the drugs were inside of the rabbit and that she was supposed to distribute them to someone else.
“We didn’t know who at the home would receive the meth. Or if they knew what they were receiving. An officer went to Ross’s home and posed as a delivery man. We got a plain white van, drove to the residence and served an anticipatory warrant on the resident.”
Ross is being held in the Cherokee Detention Center on a $75,000 bond.
This particular Easter bunny was being used for nefarious purposes, but not all Easter bunnies are bad. Have you ever wondered how the Easter bunny became a part of our culture? The Inquisitr recently researched the strange tradition and found the answer.
