Salwa Amin, 24, was arraigned in Nicholas County Magistrate Court on felony charges of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver. She is held at the Central Regional Jail on $200,000 bond.

State police said a multi-agency task force arrested Amin and two others late Sunday at a Suumersville home after receiving a tip from an informant. Officers said they found oxycodone pills and heroin.

"Buckwild" depicts young West Virginians. It has drawn criticism for what some see as a negative portrayal of the state's youth.
