On Tuesday, “Charmed” actress Rose McGowan turned herself into the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office. A felony warrant was issued on February 1 by the Metropolitan Washington Airport Authority Police Department.
The warrant was issued after an issue took place at the Dulles International Airport in Virginia on January 20. McGowan, who was planning on attending the Women’s March in D.C., reportedly lost her wallet on the flight.
When a staff member was cleaning the plane and found the wallet, they also found two small bags of white powder. After testing the substance, it was determined to be cocaine.
According to McGowan, the entire situation felt suspicious. She said that she was not sure if the person who called from the airport to inform her of her lost wallet was even a real officer. Additionally, she felt like she was being followed. She said that her fear kept her from responding to the situation for months.
She said, “I was going to go ASAP, but then things started to get really weird. I knew I was being followed and that I wasn’t safe. I even hired a private investigator to investigate whether the warrant was real.”
The actress reportedly felt unsafe because she was one of the first Hollywood females who spoke out about Harvey Weinstein. She said that he had hired investigators to find a way to get her arrested.
She also said that she felt that someone stole her wallet and planted the substance in it. She said that she had not taken the wallet out of her bag at any point, but that she left it unattended when she went to the bathroom while on the flight. McGowan did not realize her wallet was missing until she was at the baggage claim.
On Tuesday, McGowan finally turned herself in. She was booked for a felony possession of a controlled substance and was later released on a $5,000 bond.
McGowan said that she will plead “not guilty” to the charges. She denies having the cocaine at all and will stick with her case that it was planted in her wallet.
