Galesburg Police Department shared Barrick’s photo on Facebook in the hopes of finding him.

But people were quick to point out his uncanny resemblance to Walter White from the TV series Breaking Bad.

Coincidentally, Walter White, played by Bryan Cranston, was a meth cook on the show.

“Have you tried Albuquerque?” one man wrote.

Another man added he would “never turn in Heisenberg”.

“Bryan Cranston is looking rough,” another man wrote.
