April 9, 2007

Police in East Hartford, Conn., said they found a toy Easter bunny stuffed with marijuana after pulling over a man for running a red light.

The man had trouble finding his insurance documents and asked to look for them in the back seat, police said.

When he stepped out of the car, the officer smelled marijuana and saw some on the floor, police said. The officer searched the car and saw the stuffed bunny, which held 16 small plastic bags of pot, police said.

The officer also found hundreds of empty baggies and a digital scale, police said.

Ian Lawrence, 25, was charged with possession of marijuana, operating a drug factory, possession with intent to sell within 1,500 feet (457 meters) of a school and motor vehicle charges.
