Beijing police on Saturday night confirmed the detention of an actor surnamed Hu for use of drug.

Hu, 45 years old from Hangzhou City of east China's Zhejiang Province, confessed that he had been using crystal methamphetamine and tested positive for the drug after his nabbing on October 16, the police revealed without giving the actor's full name.

On the same day, a Beijing local media wrote on Sina Weibo, the Chinese equivalent of Twitter, that Hu Dong, a Chinese actor and model, had been detained by police for taking drug and later released. But Hu denied.

In recent months, China has detained a string of celebrities for drug offenses, including movie and television stars.

Jaycee Chan, son of Chinese kung fu star Jackie Chan, was formally arrested in Beijing following a drugs bust in his Beijing residence on Aug. 14.
