‘Walter White’ Look-Alike Is Wanted In Illinois On Meth-Related Charges


Todd W. Barrick, Jr., 50, bears a striking resemblance to Brian Cranston's character on "Breaking Bad."

Illinois police are on the hunt for a man who violated his probation and began circulating his mugshot on social media in hopes the public might help locate him.

But according to ABC News, the public responded in a manner that law enforcement didn’t expect.

Todd W. Barrick Jr., who is “wanted for violating his probation related to possession of methamphetamine,” struck fans of the AMC show “Breaking Bad” as looking a whole lot like the main character, Walter White.

“Brian Cranston is looking rough,” one user commented on the Galesburg Police Department’s Facebook post, referencing the actor who portrays White in the show.

Like Barrick, Cranston’s character also deals with methamphetamine, which he begins producing and dealing after being diagnosed with Stage 3 lung cancer.
