"Breaking Bad" script disappears after car break-in

Authorities in the U.S. 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.

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

The award-winning AMC TV series is filming its fifth and final season.

A call to AMC network officials for comment on the script theft wasn't immediately returned.

"Breaking Bad" follows Cranston's character, Walter White, producing and selling methamphetamine with a former student. The final eight episodes will begin airing this summer.
