Authorities in Des Moines say a woman was arrested after she and another person accidentally drove to a police station looking for a strip club.

The female passenger was arrested early Friday for possession of a controlled substance after officers stopped her and the male driver. The pair had driven their vehicle into a private area of the police station after looking for a strip club in West Des Moines.

The Des Moines Register says officers reported the pair had bloodshot, watery eyes. They also say the vehicle smelled of marijuana. Officers did not find anything illegal in the car.

The newspaper says the passenger was arrested after she reportedly admitted to having prescription pain killers in her purse.
