Ryan Lee Carrol was quoted in the NaplesNews as saying the above quote in a September 28 article.

He was likely the envy of many “Breaking Bad” fans as he won a raffle, put on by Aaron Paul, to watch the finale of the series with the cast. He said, ““I think we’re going to be in Hazmat suits with [the cast],” and was very excited after discovering the raffle on Twitter and eventually winning.

“I guess he’s[Aaron Paul] going to pick us up in the RV they cook on the show in,” Carroll told NaplesNews.

2. Ryan Was Charged With 2 Felonies & a Misdemeanor Involving Drugs

Ryan Lee Carrol was charged with “possessing a synthetic narcotic, a controlled substance without prescription, and keeping a shop or vehicle for dangerous drugs,” reports IBTimes.

HuffPo says Randy Hughes, Carrol’s neighbor said, “there were large amounts of mail and packages delivered to Carroll’s home. You knew something was up. They either had a very successful business, or they were up to something they shouldn’t be. Every day, FedEx deliveries.”

The bust was apparently a big one.

“It was kind of scary. I came home at about 6 p.m. and there were still about 10 cop cars and they had this big bread truck and they were bringing boxes and boxes of something out,” said another neighbor, Peter Ryther, to FoxNews.

Some are reporting that he was dealing synthetic marijuana, but it’s more fun to imagine that it was meth.
