The Albuquerque man who police said broke into the car of a “Breaking Bad” actor and stole a script is in trouble again.

Xavier Macafee was in court Thursday.

This time, Macafee is accused of breaking into a car and taking a sweatshirt.

Just last month, police said he broke into actor Brian Cranston’s vehicle and stole a script from the hit show.

Macafee was in a plain white shirt as he stood before a judge, but according to court documents, when he was in court back in March he was wearing the stolen sweatshirt. Someone saw him wearing it on television and called police.

Macafee said someone let him borrow the shirt.

A judge ordered him back into custody.

It was the second time Macafee was in court Thursday. He also faced a judge for a drunk driving charge.

KOB Eyewitness News 4 found out Macafee has extensive criminal past dating as far back as 2004. Many of his charges were for burglary.
