The “Breaking Bad” script stealer has apparently been apprehended.

Bryan Cranston

Xavier Macafee, 29, Albuquerque, New Mexico, was being held on suspicion of burglary, according to the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s officials.

He is accused of breaking into Bryan Cranston’s car and taking a script for “Breaking Bad.”

Macafee was booked into jail Friday and made his initial court appearance today.

The breakin- in apparently took place Dec. 20 when Cranston’s car was parked at Sandia Peak, according to authorities. A sheriff’s department spokesman said none of the stolen items have been recovered, but that detectives were investigating the case. Those include an iPad, shoulder bag and miscellaneous personal items.

Television station KOAT in Albuquerque reported that someone called Cranston’s assistant claiming they overheard a conversation in a bar in which the alleged thief was bragging about his ownership of the script.

The station contacted Sony Pictures about the missing script, they said they knew no scripts were stolen, and weren’t concerned about confidential information being compromised.

The fifth and final season of the AMC series is being filmed in and around Albuquerque, where it is set. In the series, former high school chemistry teacher Walter White (played by Cranston) produces and sells methamphetamine with former student Jesse Pinkman (played by Aaron Paul).
