Alexis Neiers, part of the so-called "Bling-Ring," was arrested Wednesday after allegedly being in possession of black tar heroin.Police also found a fake Florida driver's license in the 19-year-old's home in the 5400 block of West View Court near Westlake Village. Police came to the home around 7:20 a.m. to conduct a probation compliance check.

Neiers was arrested earlier this year in connection with a string of burglaries in the homes of young celebrities. Her links with the burglaries landed her on the reality show, "Pretty Wild" on E!.

She was booked at the sheriff's Malibu-Lost Hills station and is being held without bail.

The aspiring reality TV actress had reportedly failed to check in with her probation officer after being released from jail last summer.

Neiers faces a charge of controlled substance possession, and she also faces possible charges of possession of drug paraphernalia and identity theft.

She served 29 days of a six-month jail sentence after she pleaded no contest in May to a residential burglary charge involving a July 2009 break-in at actor Orlando Bloom's home.

Five others who were charged along with Neiers are still awaiting trial on charges that they were involved in burglaries of celebrities' homes.
