‘Breaking Bad’ script stolen from Bryan Cranston’s car

We’re all anxiously awaiting the return of “Breaking Bad.” Having to wait until July to find out what happens to televisions best drug dealer is driving us crazy. Crazy in the sense that we can’t stop talking about it, not criminal crazy.

It turns out some are less patient than we are. A New Mexico man, Xavier McAffee, was taken into custody on suspicion of one felony. He is accused of breaking into Bryan Cranston’s – aka Walter White – Audi last December and swiping a brown shoulder bag, which contained a number of personal items including a “Breaking Bad” TV script.

“We received info from a confidential informant that he knew of an individual having a script from Breaking Bad and wanted to know if anyone wanted to buy an iPad,” Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Aaron Williamson told E! News.

A police spokesperson said Cranston’s car was targeted randomly and not because of his role in the popular television series.

Stay off the blogs, though, folks. The screenplay has yet to be recovered, which means spoilers can pop up online at any point.

Here’s hoping nothing related to the final season of “Breaking Bad” appears online. We waited far too long to have the season ruined by online spoilers.
