EL PASO, Texas — El Paso County sheriff's deputies are warning residents about a hoax text circulating locally that claims to have originated from the Sheriff's Office.

The text warns recipients that if they come across a lost child asking for a ride home, to take that child to the nearest police station, and that if the driver takes the child to the address he or she asks to be taken to, the driver will be raped by members of the Mara Salvatrucha gang.
