'Breaking Bad' script missing after car break-in

Posted:
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) -

Authorities in New Mexico have arrested a man who allegedly broke into "Breaking Bad" actor Bryan Cranston's car late last year and stole a script for the popular television show.

   Bernalillo County Sheriff's officials announced Monday that 29-year-old Xavier Macafee is being held on suspicion of burglary.

They say none of the stolen items have been recovered, but detectives are investigating the case.

   Sheriff's officials say Cranston's car was broken into Dec. 20 while it was parked at Sandia Peak.

   The award-winning AMC TV series is set in Albuquerque and is filming its fifth and final season in and around the city.

   "Breaking Bad" follows Cranston's character Walter White producing and selling methamphetamine with a former student named Jesse Pinkman, who's played by Aaron Paul.
