DANVILLE, Va. — A man dressed as the Easter Bunny was arrested after police said he illegally had prescription narcotics Friday in Danville.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reported that Joshua Lee Bolling, 24, was arrested while working as the costumed character at Piedmont Mall.

Police said they started investigating after mall management began complaining of “possible criminal drug activity.”

“His suspicious behavior took place while he was on breaks and not during his contact with children,” the paper reported.

Police said he did not have a prescription for the pills he possessed. Police said he was arrested in a private area away from children.
