“Breaking Bad,” New Jersey style.
A Garden State cop was busted Sunday for running a meth lab out of his house, prosecutors announced Sunday.
Christopher Walls, 50, a longtime member of the Long Branch Police Department, was arrested after his coworkers were called to his house Saturday night because of a domestic disturbance, the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office said.
Someone in the house tipped off cops to the cop’s Walter White-like activity and found the ingredients and equipment for making meth in the basement and a shed, a statement from the prosecutor said.
Walls had books related to making meth, explosives and poison, the release said.
The officer was a 19-year veteran of the Long Branch department.

Police also found a stash of six guns, high-capacity magazines and ammo in an unsecured safe that could’ve been accessed by a child living in the house.
Local police worked with state police in the investigation, the prosecutor’s statement said.
“It is particularly distressing that this hazard was caused by a sworn law enforcement officer,” prosecutor Christopher Gramiccioni said in the statement.
Walls is facing six charges related to the meth production as well as a second degree child endangerment charge and firearm possession during a controlled-dangerous substance offense.
He faces a maximum of 60 years behind bars if convicted of all the charges. Walls is being held in Monmouth County Correctional Institution pending a hearing. Information for his attorney wasn’t available Sunday.
