Easter Bunny Packed With Crystal Meth Doesn't Get to Hop, Hop, Hop On Down the Trail

    The Easter bunny has been arrested for smuggling thousands of pounds worth of crystal meth.

    Well almost.

    A toy rabbit which was sent in the post was sniffed out by a police dog in Tulsa County, USA, as it contained a pound of the illegal drug which was stuffed in two condoms. The street value of the meth is $30,000 (£20,000).

    "We’ve intercepted narcotics in the mail before," Police Chief Nate King told Fox23 in Tulsa. The Easter Bunny I thought was a strange touch."

    An officer posed as a delivery man and went to the recipient's home. "We got a plain white van, drove to the residence and served an anticipatory warrant on the resident," King added.

    Carolyn Ross allegedly confessed to knowing about the drugs and is being held on a $75,000 bond (£52,000).

    Is it at all necessary for news agencies to make up headlines?

    The original headline put on a news story that comes off the wire is never used, as each newspaper, television station, radio station or online site that uses the story is encouraged to give the new service's offering a unique headline of its own.

    Why do you ask? Did you not like the "hop, hop, hop" added to this one?

    I didn't mean the headline,I meant the first line "The Easter bunny has been arrested for smuggling thousands of pounds worth of crystal meth." When it was not in fact thousands of pounds.

    I think the author meant the unit of currency, not weight. The Daily Star is British.

    Yes, £ = Pound

    There was 1lb in weight worth £20,000

    Join the club. Maybe I'll start a social group for dense people. It would probably be pretty huge. Haha...

    The whole article is based upon sensationalism and I highly suspect the play on words was intended to be misleading. I often wonder if cops pay too much for their illicit substances. The monetary worth is always highly exaggerated. And why would anybody in their right mind admit to knowing how much meth the Easter Bunny ate? You have the Right to remain silent ANYTHING YOU SAY CAN AND WILL BE HELD AGAINST YOU!
