    A Central Texas woman is behind bars on a drug possession charge after responding to a fake news alert claiming that drug supplies in the region have been contaminated by the deadly Ebola virus.

    Chastity Eugina Hopson, 29, was arrested Thursday and charged with possession of less than one gram of a controlled substance, according to Burnet County jail records.


    Hopson was responding to a Facebook post from the Granite Shoals Police Department that said supplies of methamphetamine and heroin in the region have possibly been contaminated with Ebola, police announced Thursday.

    "If you have recently purchased meth or heroin in Central Texas, please take it to the local police or sheriff department so it can be screened with a special device," the fake news story published Tuesday said. "DO NOT use it until it has been properly checked for possible Ebola contamination!

    The post received more than 1,290 shares on Facebook and more than 200 comments.

    Two days later, the department announced that officers had their "first concerned citizen" respond to the post. Officers then "gladly took the item for further testing," police said.

    The Granite Shoals Police Department did not immediately respond to a phone call Monday morning requesting additional information about the arrest.

    After receiving some comments accusing officers of being unprofessional, the department shared this Facebook post:

    Here's the other story that is going around: If you managed to buy some meth in a New England Chipotle parking lot you may want to bring it in to have it tested for norovirus.

    True story.
