Galesburg Police Department posted Todd W. Barrick Jr's mugshot on Facebook last week, claiming he violated probation, and asked for public assistance in tracking him down.
What they got in return was lots and lots of "Breaking Bad" references.
"Say my name!!!" one commenter wrote. "Heisenberg is Alive!! insisted another. "This new 'Breaking Bad' movie looks like it sucks!" a third reviewed the set of six mugshots.
There were some tip-offs in the comment section too. "Pretty sure I saw the bald guy in a R.V with a skinny looking guy," one claimed, while another insisted: "Hes hiding til he can see what Pinkmans been up to in the El camino movie."
Along with the matching bald head, distinctive goatee, glasses and steely-eyed stare, Barrick is also listed as being 50-years-old — the exact same age as Bryan Cranston's cancer stricken chemistry-teacher-turned-meth-manufacturer antihero in the AMC smash hit.
Cranston's co-star Aaron Paul is set to reprise his character of sidekick Jesse Pinkman in the sequel film "El Camino", set for release on Netflix on October 11.
