ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - The plot thickens for the man accused of more than just breaking into the car of "Breaking Bad" star Bryan Cranston and stealing a script of what could be one of the show's final episodes.
When a viewer saw the alleged thief on KRQE News 13 Monday, he was shocked at the black hoodie Xavier McAfee was wearing.
"When I first saw it on TV, I recognized it immediately because there was only three of those jackets that were produced in Albuquerque," Anthony Salas told News 13.
Salas said he recognized the jacket as the one stolen when his truck was burglarized in February while it was parked at Hotel Albuquerque.
"We had been there that evening for a birthday party, and came out to my truck and the window was broken," he said. "My jacket and some other articles were stolen from my truck that evening."
It's not just the script but what Xavier McAfee was wearing in court that could have him in even more trouble.
McAfee, 29, was in court Monday accused of stealing Cranston's iPad and a script from his show's final season.
Court documents allege McAfee bragged at a local bar about burglarizing Cranston's car. Monday in court he denied the accusations.
"I was spoken to by a detective. They arrested me on Friday," McAfee told the judge. "I haven't had a chance to talk to anybody,"
After his court appearance he told reporters, "They have me mistaken for somebody else."
But Salas said there is no question the jacket McAfee was wearing with the word "Imperials" embroidered in yellow is his.
On Tuesday he filed a police report for the vehicle burglary. Albuquerque police have forwarded his case to Impact Unit detectives working the downtown area.
The embroidery on the jacket represents the Imperials Car Club, of which Salas is a member.
"It's not a good representation of our club when it shows it's somebody that could potentially be a thief has our colors on TV," Salas told News 13.
Since seeing it on television, Salas said he wants his jacket back. And one more thing: "I just want the car club name cleared."
The investigation into the theft of the "Breaking Bad" script continues. According to a Bernalillo County Sheriff's Department spokesperson, detectives are still following up on leads.
Meanwhile the missing script is still missing.
Sony Pictures, which produces "Breaking Bad," issued a statement Tuesday thanking investigators for arresting McAfee. Sony did not say anything about the significance of the missing script.
The final six episodes of "Breaking Bad," which is filmed in and around Albuquerque, are set to air later this year.
