ENON — UPDATE @ 12:27 p.m. (Dec. 13):Nearly a month after prompting a shutdown of an Enon Speedway, a woman has been charged with inducing panic connected to a white powder found on her at the business.
Erynn Asebrook, 49, of Springfield, appeared in municipal court on a single count of inducing panic.
UPDATE @ 7:33 p.m. (Nov. 14): A white powder reportedly all over a woman who walked into the Speedway on North Xenia Drive in Enon was not dangerous, a Mad River Twp. fire lieutenant said.
Lt. John Heath said that apparent fears about the powerful opioid fentanyl prompted employees to dial 9-1-1 when they saw the woman walk into the business. The white powder also was found in the woman's vehicle, he said.
Authorities aren't sure what the powder is, Heath said.
No one was injured. Police are believed to have taken the woman to a hospital for evaluation.
The Speedway, which was shut down at least 45 minutes, has since reopened.
Enon police, fire crews and a hazardous materials unit are at a Speedway service station on North Xenia Drive on a report involving someone who poured a white powder all over the floor of the business that authorities think could be poisonous.

— Alberto, the first named storm of the Atlantic Ocean season, is forecast to strengthen as it continues to move over the open waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
The latest forecast from the National Hurricane Center brings the system to strong tropical storm strength before making landfall somewhere along the Louisiana to Florida coastlines Monday afternoon, Storm Center 7 Meteorologist Brett Collar said.
The forecast track then indicates the remnants of Alberto could influence the weather here on Wednesday and Thursday. The main threat for this area would be some decent rain; however, there could be a few storms as well, Collar said.
It also is important to note that your WHIO Weather App may alert you if the Miami Valley is placed within the uncertainty cone issued by the National Hurricane Center sometime this weekend. If you get that alert, it doesn’t mean to expect a tropical storm … but that there is an increased possibility of some influence of the storm.
