A script that could contain the plot twists of the final season of AMC's hit show "Breaking Bad" is still missing after the arrest of a 29-year-old New Mexico man charged with breaking into the car of Bryan Cranston, the show's star star.

Xavier Macafee, 29, was arrested on Friday and charged after he was overheard bragging about the script at a local bar. The script along with a stolen iPad and other personal items of the actor have yet to be recovered.

"We received info from a confidential informant that he knew of an individual having a script from Breaking Bad and wanted to know if anyone wanted to buy an iPad," Bernalillo County Sheriff's Department spokesman Aaron Williamson told E! News.

Whether the stolen script consisted of a few scenes or an entire season is unknown at this point. The potential for a leak of storyline plot twists in the popular AMC show's last season would be devastating to fans if in the coming months such information found its way onto Internet forums.

The show's fifth and final season is set to air this summer. Since its 2008 debut, the series has won seven Primetime Emmy Awards, including three consecutive wins for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for Cranston.

In the series Cranston plays a struggling high school chemistry teacher who, after being diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer, decides to produce and sell methamphetamine with a former student so to secure his family's financial future before he dies.

The theft occurred Dec. 20 when Cranston parked his Audi at a lookout point on Sandia Crest, outside of Albuquerque, near where "Breaking Bad" conducts its shoots.

"He had driven up there and parked his car and walked out to the lookout to take in the views of the city. He was only gone for 10 minutes and realized his car, an Audi, has been broken into," Williamson said.

The crime appears to be random say police, who at this point do not believe the assailant knew whose car he was breaking into.

AMC network officials have yet to respond to the theft.
