Say my name.

Breaking Bad the series may be over, but it looks like one guy in New Mexico is trying to live out the plot, as 56-year-old John Gose was busted making meth.

Gose, a former educator with a background teaching high school science, was caught during a traffic stop in Las Cruces, N.M. And it was this traffic stop that led police to discover that Gose was transporting a Styrofoam ice chest that held rubber tubing and glassware along with the chemical ingredients needed for making a batch of that blue stuff.

According to authorities, based on their discovery Gose would’ve been able to manufacture at least a pound of meth, an amount worth approximately $44,800. More than what a teacher makes it seems.

Gose, who taught science for nine years at Irvin High School in Texas, broke down in court and admitted to his wrongdoings, eventually pleading guilty to two counts of trafficking the drug by manufacturing, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a controlled substance.

And now? Well now he may end up spending more than 20 years behind bars.
