This is the Easter Bunny that was stuffed with $30,000 of meth.

A police dog in Tulsa County, Oklahoma, sniffed out the drugs which were packed into a toy bunny that was sent in the post

When cops sliced open the bunny they found two condoms filled with the drugs.

Tahlequah Police Chief Nate King said: "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.'

The pound of meth has a street value of around $30,000.  

"We've intercepted narcotics in the mail before," said Chief Nate King. 

Tahlequah police were alerted by Tulsa County deputies that the package was to be delivered to Ross's home.

"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 to WFTV.

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.
