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.
