'Breaking Bad' winner arrested on drug charges

Posted: Updated:

FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say a Florida man who won a raffle to watch the series finale of AMC's "Breaking Bad" with the cast has been charged with running a drug distribution operation.

The Lee County Sheriff's Office reports that Ryan Lee Carroll sold synthetic marijuana and shipped it across the U.S. from his Fort Myers home with two other men. He was arrested on New Year's Eve.

Authorities seized more than $1 million in synthetic marijuana during the bust.

According to deputies, the suspects used a cement mixer to create the drugs. The drugs were shipped through the U.S. Postal Service.

Investigators also seized a souvenir Hazmat suit signed by "Breaking Bad" cast members. The TV show follows a former high school teacher who produces and sells meth with a previous student.
