LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA (BNO NEWS) — Reality TV star Alexis Neiers on Wednesday was arrested for violating her probation after she was convicted for her participation in one burglary of a celebrity residence.

Neiers, 19, failed to check with her probation officers who visited her residence in Calabasas. After a search, officers found an unspecified quantity of black-tar heroin and a fake Florida driver’s license in her purse.

The reality show actress was sentenced to 180 days in prison last summer after being convicted for first-degree residential burglary of the Hollywood Hills home of actor Orlando Bloom. Neiers was part of the “bling ring” celebrities burglaries and pleaded no contest to the charge against her.

She spent 30 days in jail before being released on probation. She was a minor player in the burglaries but her involvement got media’s attention due to her starring role in the E! reality show “Pretty Wild” which featured also her mother, Andrea Arlington-Dunne, and sisters Gabby Neiers and Tess Taylor.

The “bling ring” consisted in a group of teenagers that attended high school in Calabasas, a fancy Los Angeles suburb. The group burglarized many residences of celebrities such as Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom, Lindsay Lohan, Megan Fox and others. Their biggest theft was the December 2008 ransack of Paris Hilton’s home as the teens stole approximately $2 million in jewelry, clothes and other items.

Neiers was booked at the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Lost Hills-Malibu station on three counts of probation violation, possession of a controlled substance, and perjury for possessing a fake ID. She could serve up to three years in prison if convicted.
