GALESBURG, Ill. (KWQC) – Todd W. Barrick, Jr., is a man being sought by police for probation violation in Galesburg, a city of 32,000 people in west-central Illinois.
His case usually would not be newsworthy, except Barrick bears a striking resemblance to Walter White, the
chemistry-teacher-turned-meth-manufacturer played by Bryan Cranston on the legendary TV show “Breaking Bad.”
Compounding the coincidence is Barrick happens to be 50, the same age as White in the beginning of the TV series, and police say his probation violation is connected to possession of methamphetamine.
After Galesburg Police posted his booking photo online, KWQC published an article on Barrick last Monday.
Despite the international exposure, Galesburg Police tell KWQC officers still have not located Barrick as of Thursday night.
