“Buckwild” Star Salwa Amin Arrested for Drug Possession
MTV reality star was hit with two counts of possession with intent to distribute
Another day, another MTV reality star gets on the wrong side of the law. Salwa Amin, who is a regular cast member of “Buckwild,” also referred to in the blogosphere as the country version of “Jersey Shore,” was busted on drug charges.The whole thing went down in a home in Summersville, West Virginia, after surveillance and police had conducted an extensive raid on the property, TMZ reports.
Amin and two men were found hiding in a shed, with the reality star hiding Oxycodone on her person. She was also hit with a heroin charge.
“According to the Nicholas County Magistrate Court, Salwa Amin will post $200,000 [€149,488] bond for two counts of drug possession with intent to deliver. One count for oxycodone, the other for heroin,” TMZ reports.
“According to the chief, his drug task force got a tip that a ‘shipment’ would be delivered to the home in Nicholas County sometime on Sunday. The chief says they observed a lot of foot traffic coming in and out of the house – and says the people were only staying for very brief periods of time... so they immediately obtained a search warrant, and then launched the raid,” the same media outlet notes in a separate post.
Amin, Shawn L. Booker and Jason D. Jones were arrested. All three were hiding in the shed when police started the raid.
“We're told Salwa had a ‘quantity of Oxycodone’ in her purse – and Booker had a ‘large amount of money’ on him. Additionally, police say they found 3 separate packages of heroin in the shed. They were unclear about a specific quantity of the drugs,” TMZ reports.
Jones, who owns the house where the raid took place, told police that the other two, Amin and Booker, were the masterminds behind everything, bringing him in the loop that they planned to bring in drugs to sell them.
As of now, no comment from MTV. Just recently, the network proudly announced they were getting ready for a second season of “Buckwild.”
