A police officer chased and apprehended a suspected car thief – all while wearing fluffy pink bunny ears.

The uniformed female officer was pictured by a police unit in Australia handcuffing a man at the side of the road.

“Successful early easter egg hunt but we couldn’t find his ankle bracelet,” said a caption posted by Mundaring Police on Friday.

In a number of images on the force's Twitter account, one posing by the arrested suspect, the officer can be seen wearing the seasonal accessories.

According to Mundaring Police, a 19-year-old has been charged with two counts of stealing a motor vehicle as well as drug driving charges.

A black Land Rover, which is believed to have been stolen, can be seen in a third picture with two flashing police cars behind it.

It is understood that the suspect had removed an electronic tag that had been monitoring his movements.
