"Breaking Bad’s" tightly guarded secrets could come to light before the series returns this summer.
Star Bryan Cranston reported a theft on March 1, alleging that someone broke his car window and snatched a shoulder bag containing an iPad and his "Breaking Bad" script, according to Albuquerque’s ABC affiliate, KOAT-TV.
Court documents obtained by ABCNews.com reveal that one of Cranston’s employees, Taryn Feingold, was contacted by a confidential informant, who reportedly overheard a man at a local bar boasting about how he broke into a vehicle in the Sandia Mountain Range. He then reportedly showed his company “some type of laptop or iPad,” according to the complaint, while “describing how he also had a script from the 'Breaking Bad' series.”
On Saturday, the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office arrested suspect Xavier McAfee for burglary, the complaint states.
The hit AMC series is currently wrapping up its final season with eight episodes remaining. Cranston, 57, plays high-school chemistry teacher Walter White, who becomes entangled in the world of meth dealing after being diagnosed with terminal cancer. A date has not yet been set for its return.
A rep for Cranston did not immediately return The Hollywood Reporter's request for comment.
