“Breaking Bad” Script Stolen from Bryan Cranston
(ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.) -- Secrets from the final season of Breaking Bad are in danger of being spilled after one of the show’s scripts was allegedly stolen from star Bryan Cranston’s car.
Cranston, 57, reported a theft March 1, after someone broke into his passenger-side window and took a shoulder bag containing an iPad and a copy of his Breaking Bad script, according to a criminal complaint filed by Bernalillo County, N.M., and obtained by ABC News.
The Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office Saturday arrested suspect Xavier McAfee for burglary, according to the complaint.
The Sheriff’s Office told Albuquerque ABC affiliate KOAT-TV that the script has not yet been recovered and the investigation is ongoing.
The criminal complaint revealed how one of Cranston’s employees, Taryn Feingold, was contacted by a confidential informant. The informant detailed to Feingold, and later the Sheriff’s Office, about overhearing a man at a local bar bragging about how he broke into a vehicle in the Sandia Mountain Range. He then showed his friends at the bar “some type of laptop or iPad,” the complaint read, while “describing how he also had a script from the Breaking Bad series.”
The hit AMC series is wrapping up its final season. Cranston plays high-school chemistry teacher Walter White, who joins the illicit world of meth dealing after being diagnosed with terminal cancer.
