An Arlington woman was arrested for methamphetamine possession Sunday after deputies were called to an apartment for the smell of burnt marijuana.

Alyssa D. Lykens, 24, is charged with possession of a controlled substance, a Class 4 felony.

According to an arrest affidavit, Washington County sheriff's deputies were dispatched at approximately 11:59 a.m. to an apartment in the 200 block of North First Street for the smell of burnt marijuana possibly coming from the apartment.

When deputies entered the building, they detected a strong smell of burnt marijuana. A woman, later identified as Lykens, opened the door to the apartment. There was also a man, identified as Donald W. Hughes, 37, and two children inside.

A deputy asked Lykens where the marijuana was. She didn't answer, but the man said it was in a bedroom and he would get it for them. A deputy followed him and saw a green, leafy substance on a book.

The man gave deputies consent to search the bedroom. During the search, a deputy located a small bag containing a white crystalline substance in a wallet, which belonged to Lykens. The substance tested positive for meth.

Lyken was arrested and transported to the Washington County Jail. Hughes was cited for possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia, according to the report.
