Those are some captivating photos!
Bronx rookie cop Vera Mekuli, who made headlines last year when she gave a cop a lap dance at a Christmas party, is melting Instagram with sizzling snaps dressed like bad girl Harley Quinn from the DC Comics.
Wearing harlequin makeup, fishnet stockings and an oversized hammer just like the anti-hero, Mekuli, 27, posed alongside her black Subaru WRX STI.
In one picture she’s standing in front of the car and looking back at the camera, in another she’s crouching at the rear of the Subaru, which has a spoiler.
Mekuli posted three photos on her Instagram page with the caption, “Trouble never looked so good.”
The cheeky snapshots made her fans overheat.
“DEFINITELY represents NEW YORK’S FINEST!!!” a gawker drooled.
“Best cop ever,” wrote another.
But not everyone was impressed by her provocative images.
“How this woman is still a cop is beyond me,” wrote one. Another chimed in: “People like her turn the job into a joke. … that is accepted by a police officer? This is backup if someone is fighting for their life?”
It’s unclear if the cop plans to pursue a modeling career or start an OnlyFans account, as some fans encouraged her last spring after posting another provocative photo.
Her Instagram page includes her Venmo and Cashapp information whenever one of her 23,000 followers wants to provide support and send her money.
“She just hired me for a photoshoot. That’s all,” photographer TJ Connors told the Post. He declined to provide any further information about the shooting.
Connors said he usually charges $80 for 10 photos.
Mekuli got into hot water at the 44th Ward’s annual holiday celebration a year ago when she started banging on the married Lt. Crunching Nick McGarry, a lap dance captured on video. McGarry was taken to the transit office just as the NYPD opened an investigation.
She later apologized and said she didn’t know McGarry was married.
Mekuli was suspended without pay in May after he caused a stir at a New Jersey state police barracks over the arrest of a family member for drunk driving.
The NYPD said Mekuli was still assigned to the 44th Precinct in the Concourse Section and McGarry was in the 49th Precinct in the Northeast Bronx.
Mekuli did not respond to requests for comment.
