TEMPE, AZ -- The Easter bunny put in a lot of hard work here in the Valley over the past 24 hours.

In addition to his usual duties, he targeted photo radar cameras in Tempe.

The person behind the bunny costume managed to shut one of the cameras down for hours.

"I think it's funny, the cameras are annoying," said John Leonard of Tempe.

Shelton of Bonner Springs, Kansas videotaped the prank and then uploaded it to YouTube.

"I heard there was going to be an Easter Bunny there so I figured I'd tape him," said Shelton.

The 90-second clip shows someone dressed in the costume walk up to a red light camera at the intersection of Rural Road and University Drive in Tempe.
