Easter Bunny Arrested for DVD Theft




Our holiday heroes are not always angels. Santa was seen puking in Lakewood last Christmas, for instance, and with Easter upon us we have bad news to share: the Easter Bunny is a DVD thief.

From the News-Herald:

Justin Medema was arrested Saturday on an outstanding felony warrant as he reportedly wrapped up a shift as an Easter Bunny, Mentor Police Sgt. Mike Majernik said.

Medema is accused of stealing DVDs from a Mentor business on multiple occasions in February, Majernik said.

Cops estimate the DVDs totaled about $1,000 in all. Times are tough for the Easter Bunny, man.
