Tahlequah police said that a package intercepted in Tulsa County contained an Easter Bunny stuffed with $30,000 worth of meth.
Police arrested Carolyn Ross.
“We’ve intercepted narcotics in the mail before,” said Tahlequah Police Chief Nate King.
However, this box is one of the strangest that King said he’s ever dealt with.
“The Easter Bunny I thought was a strange touch,” King said.
A hole was cut into the bottom of the rabbit and police found quite the surprise waiting inside.
“There were two condoms and meth stuffed inside the rabbit,” King said.
The pound of meth has a street value of around $30,000.
“It’s not the prize egg that we want in Tahlequah,” King said.
Tahlequah police were alerted by Tulsa County deputies that the package was to be delivered to Ross’s home in Tahlequah.
“We didn’t know who at the home would receive the meth or if they knew what they were receiving,” King said.
One 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,” King said.
Officials said that Ross confessed to knowing the drugs were in the mail. She said she was supposed to redistribute them to someone else.
Ross is being held at the Cherokee Detention Center on $75,000 bond.
