He thought he was breaking into a Breaking Bad set, but an Albuquerque man reportedly high on meth needed to take his rake elsewhere.

Neighbors in the 1600 block of Coal Avenue said a confused looking man was digging with a rake outside a home in southeast Albuquerque, according to a criminal complaint.

That man, Christopher Moulin, later told police he was looking for a hidden key outside the home he thought was a set for the popular TV show Breaking Bad.

The homeowners said they did not know anything about a TV production set, nor did they know Moulin.

Police said they had Moulin fill in the holes he dug at the home and offered him a ride to his house across town.

On their way, an officer noticed Moulin acting strangely and asked if he had taken any drugs. According to the criminal complaint, Moulin said he uses meth and had recently started using cocaine.

He reportedly told police he was stressed and used meth to stay awake for his long hours at work.

The officer asked Moulin if he had any drugs in his possession, and he reportedly told the officer he had a bag of meth in his front pocket. The officer found three small bags of meth in Moulin’s right pocket and later found more drugs at his home, the criminal complaint states.

Moulin faced a judge on Saturday. He was charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute. He was released from jail on a $2,500 cash surety bond.
