SUMMERSVILLE - A member of a West Virginia-based MTV reality TV show was arrested early Monday morning after authorities say they found her with drugs.

Salwa Amin, 24, was booked into the Central Regional Jail just before 1 a.m. for possession with intent to deliver oxycodone and heroin, according to records. She remains in jail on $200,000 bond for the felony drug charge from Nicholas County.

Authorities said they found Amin and Shawn Booker in a shed. Amin was in possession of oxycodone and Booker had a large amount of money. Three bags of heroin were also found in the shed, according to a criminal complaint.

Based on a statement from another man ,"it is believed" the pair transported the drugs to distribute to other people, the complaint read.

Authorities were alerted to the alleged activity after a confidential informant tipped off the Central West Virginia Drug Task Force, according to a criminal complaint.

"Surveillance of the residence showed numerous individuals enter and leave the property which was indicative of narcotic trafficking," the complaint said.

Srgt. Rick Drake, of the jail, said Amin does not want to talk to the media.
