CHARLESTON, W.Va.

Salwa Amin, a cast member of the MTV reality show “Buckwild” has been arrested in West Virginia on felony drug charges.

Amin, 24, was arrested late Sunday night at a residence in Summersville by a multi-agency task force.

Officers obtained a search warrant and went to the residence of Jason Jones after receiving a tip from an informant. A search found oxycodone pills, heroin and $3,000 in cash, West Virginia State Police Capt. B.L. Mankins said Monday in a statement.

Jones, 24, and Shawn Booke, 41, of Detroit also were arrested.

Amin, Jones and Booker were each charged with two counts of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, a felony.

They were being held Monday at the Central Regional Jail on $200,000 bond each after arraignments in Nicholas County Magistrate Court.

MTV announced last week that “Buckwild” will be picked up for a second season. The first season’s finale aired Thursday night.

MTV had said that the half-hour series was pulling in an average of 3 million viewers per episode since its premiere in January.

“Buckwild” was filmed largely around Sissonville and Charleston. It followed nine friends who find sometimes frightening ways to fill their free time beyond clubbing in Morgantown and four-wheeling in the mud.
