Rose McGowan reported to authorities in Virginia on Tuesday after being hit with an arrest warrant for felony cocaine possession.

The arrest stems from an incident earlier this year where McGowan lost her wallet while getting off a plane in Washington D.C. and when cleaning crews discovered it they reportedly found two small baggies of cocaine inside, along with the actress' medical marijuana card.

According to Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority Police, they obtained the warrant for McGowan on February 1 after an investigation of personal belongings left behind on a United flight arriving at Dulles International Airport on January 20 tested positive for narcotics.
