Woman arrested after having police check her meth for Ebola

BURNET COUNTY, Texas -- A Texas woman is behind bars after taking police up on their offer to check her drugs for Ebola contamination.

Chastity Eugina Hopson, 29, was arrested Thursday and charged with possession of less than one gram of a controlled substance, according to mysanantonio.com.

The Granite Shoals Police Department reportedly posted a tongue in cheek ad on its Facebook page saying, "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!"

It took about two days before police said Hopson took them up on the offer.
