Running a meth lab out of a mobile camper honestly isn't the worst idea in the world. Actually, if AMC's Breaking Bad is half as knowledgeable as it seems, hauling a camper into the the wilderness to cook up crystal is the safest way to evade Johnny Law. The plan goes right off the rails, though, if you park your meth camper in the middle of some stranger's backyard.
Just ask Andrew James Britt. The native of Live Oaks, Florida is facing two felonies this morning after a neighbor called to report the Britt was living in their yard without permission.
Sheriffs in Suwannee County, which is west of Jacksonville, responded to a call on Monday in Live Oak, the county seat.
When they arrived at the house, the owner told them they'd discovered a camper illicitly parked in their yard, reports WTSP.
Inside the vehicle, they found Britt sound asleep -- surrounded by meth-making equipment.
Britt faces felony charges of possessing and manufacturing meth. Riptide suggests he learn some pointers from Walter White before his next adventure.
