While Breaking Bad’s version of Walter White never gets caught by authorities during his run as a kingpin, Florida’s White was initially arrested in November when sheriff’s deputies searched his White Haven home.
Authorities were there to conduct a follow-up investigation of a child welfare case ‘involving narcotics’ and did not believe anyone was home at the time.
