In the last installment of our award-winning Breaking Bad In Real Life series*, we focused on the human stories from the show and introduced you to a Massachusetts middle school tutor with Stage III cancer who had channeled his inner Walter White and gotten himself busted with over 400 grams of methamphetamine. Today, we focus on the product. Specifically, 40 pounds of blue meth that was hidden in an SUV being transported by a semi-truck, which Oklahoma police discovered during a traffic stop.
Deputies found the drugs in a 2004 Ford Explorer that was on a vehicle transport at the TA Truck Stop on Morgan Road near I-40 Friday, October 11. The deputies were drawn to the SUV because it was registered in Colorado but was transported from Los Angeles to Monett, Missouri. [...]
Officials got consent to search the vehicle and discovered a false compartment in the rear passenger area. In the compartment, they found 15 bundles of illegal drugs that is believed to be methamphetamine. The bundles weighed 1.3 kilos each and totaled out at 19.5 kilos: approximately 42.9 pounds. Deputies say the drugs are estimated to be worth $2.3 million. [Fox 25]
Seeing as Breaking Bad ended the way it did, in a storm of bullets and ricin that took out almost everyone who had access to the recipe or the people who created it, I suppose there’s only one answer here: PINKMAN RETURNS. I mean, that or drug dealers may be coloring their stepped-on product in an attempt to piggyback on the popularity of a cable television series about someone making near 100% pure meth. So, two answers, I guess.
