A woman wanted out of Tennessee on a weapons charge was arrested in Ironton on Wednesday.

At 8 a.m., the Ironton Police Department and the U.S. Marshal Office executed a warrant at 2440 S. Sixth St. in an effort to locate Erica Morgan, 44, of Bean Station, Tennessee.

She was found and served with a fugitive from justice warrant from Tennessee on a weapons-related charge.
