For today’s World’s Dumbest Criminal, we take a glance at a Walter White look-alike named Todd W. Barrick. Barrick is wanted in Illinois on a meth charge. What a coincidence, right?
Illinois police are on the hunt for Barrick, who looks suspiciously like the hit television show “Breaking Bad’s” protagonist Walter White. Barrick is wanted for breaking his probation following a methamphetamine possession charge. Barrick dons the same bald head and comparable facial features as White, including the distinctive goatee, and is also 50 years old, the same age as the character when the TV series began. He even has a similar pair of glasses as White.
Galesburg Police posted Barrick’s mugshot on their Facebook page asking for any information on his whereabouts. From that moment forward, many followers of the page admitted to having to do a double-take at the incredible likeness to the notorious chemistry teacher turned meth kingpin from the acclaimed AMC series“Breaking Bad.”
For those of you living under rocks, “Breaking Bad” is about a chemistry teacher who turns to meth manufacturing after receiving the news of his lung cancer. He takes on the role of the mysterious new dealer, Heisenburg, to pay for his treatments in secret and everything escalates from there. Our want-to-be White definitely shares more than just looks with Heisenburg.
As of the last updates, Barrick was still at large. The Galesburg Police Department asks anyone with knowledge on his whereabouts to call Galesburg police at 309-343-9151.
Another World’s Dumbest Criminal is in the books! Maybe the Galesburg Police Department should head down to Albuquerque, New Mexico. I wonder if they’ve checked the Los Pollos Hermanos?
