Authorities didn't buy it.

Ginger Sharpe was arrested for a probation violation after her parole officer said she tested positive for the drug. However, according to court documents, Sharpe said she was prescribed the meth by a doctor in Farmington, and even had a prescription bottle with a label for meth tablets.

That bottle, it turns out, was an elaborate fake.

Sharpe is being charged with forgery and identity theft.
