Police in Summersville, W.Va., say Amin was found hiding in a shed with Shawn L. Booker and Jason D. Jones, who owns the home. Neither Booker nor Jones appear on Buckwild.
The police chief told TMZ that law enforcement had been observing the house for a day when they witnessed a large quantity of visitors who only stayed at the home for very brief periods. After receiving a warrant, they entered the shed where they found Salwa with a "quantity of Oxycodone" in her purse as well as a "large amount of money" on Booker. Police also found three packages of heroin.
Once arrested, Jones claimed that Salwa and Booker were the ones who transported drugs to his house with the intent to distribute, police say.
Amin is currently being held on $200,000 bond.
MTV had no comment on the arrest.
