Meth arrestee wears 'Breaking Bad' shirt

Associated Press Published:

CHICAGO -- A suburban Chicago man accused of operating a methamphetamine lab appears in his booking photo wearing a T-shirt from the television show "Breaking Bad."

Daniel Kowalski's mug shot shows him wearing a "Los Pollos" T-shirt. Los Pollos is a chicken restaurant depicted in the show about a methamphetamine manufacturer. The Cook County Sheriff's Office said deputies acting on a tip checked Kowalski's home Monday. They found beakers, burners, chemicals, and instructions for making meth in the house in unincorporated La Grange Highlands.

Psychedelic mushrooms were also recovered.

The 21-year-old Kowalski is charged with felony possession of a controlled substance, methamphetamine manufacturing materials and precursors. He was arrested in July 2013 on similar charges.

Kowalski's bond was set Wednesday at $100,000. It wasn't immediately known if he has an attorney.
