Rose McGowan has turned herself in on a felony drug warrant in Virginia


Updated November 14, 2017 06:48 PM EST

Rose McGowan was released on bond Tuesday after she turned herself in to authorities in connection with a felony drug possession charge in Virginia.

Last month, a warrant was issued for McGowan's arrest in Loudoun County.

According to the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority Police, the charge was tied to an incident that happened in January 2017 after personal belongings that tested positive for narcotics were left behind on a United Airlines flight that arrived at Washington Dulles International Airport.

Authorities say the incident happened the day before the Women's March in D.C., which the actress participated in.

McGowan was released on $5,000 secured bond.

Rose McGowan has been one of the leading voices against sexual harassment in Hollywood.

But now focus has shifted from her message of empowerment to an unrelated warrant for her arrest.

The actress believes the timing of the news is no coincidence.

Authorities had obtained an arrest warrant in February for felony possession of a controlled substance.

The felony charge stems from a police investigation of personal belongings left behind on a United flight arriving at Washington Dulles International Airport on Jan. 20. Police say the items tested positive for narcotics. The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority Police Department obtained the warrant on Feb. 1.

Police say they’ve attempted to contact McGowan so she can appear in a Loudoun County, Virginia, court. The warrant has been entered into a national law enforcement database.

McGowan tweeted earlier this month that she was raped by a man with the initials “HW.” The Hollywood Reporter said McGowan confirmed she was referring to disgraced media mogul Harvey Weinstein.
More than 50 women have accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment and assault.

The Associated Press has contributed to this report.
