ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - It's another bizarre arrest involving the hit TV series "Breaking Bad," but this time, the suspect is accused of looking for a way to get on the set by digging at a family's home.
For most, the best way to see the hit AMC show Breaking Bad is to just turn on the TV. However, for one Albuquerque man, the key to seeing Breaking Bad was buried underneath a concrete slab.
"You know talking about the Breaking Bad key he was looking for, it's pretty humorous now," said Erin McCullough, an Albuquerque resident who was recently surprised by a crime influenced by the TV show.
Erin and Scott Schneider have lived at their southeast Albuquerque home near Coal Avenue and Ash Street for three years. Recently, Breaking Bad filmed a piece of an episode in the area.
"They were filming down in Roosevelt Park at one point," said Schneider.
In early March, the show was not around, but it brought one man back to Erin and Scott's home.
"We woke up and someone was in our backyard," said Schneider.
Grinding a metal rake back and forth on the ground, the man was apparently trying to dig into the concrete.
"I sort of panicked to see a guy in all-black with a skull cap outside your window, it was, it was scary at first," said McCullough.
Scott ended up going outside and talking to the man who had an excuse.
"He said he was looking for the set, the key to Breaking Bad, he said he was working on the set and he said he was digging a hole to try to find the key," said Schneider.
Scott then asked the man, 25-year old Christopher Moulin, to leave. He did, but Moulin only made it as far as the front of the house where he started digging again.
"At that point we didn't really want to mess with him anymore and we just called the police," said Schneider.
Albuquerque Police arrested Moulin who admitted to using and carrying meth. He told police he walked four miles to get to the house, convinced that there was a "key" to the set of Breaking Bad buried there.
Moulin didn't do any damage to the property and wasn't charged with any crime related to entering the home's backyard or digging.
As far as Erin and Scott know, the key doesn't exist.
"I mean the whole situation, seeing him digging with his hands and this big hole and gravel … it's pretty humorous now that there's no threat of any danger," said Schneider.
Moulin is charged with possession of a controlled substance.
Originally, APD released him in March with an agreement to drop the charges if he served as a confidential informant. However, Moulin was re-arrested in May after failing to check in with officers.
