A California physical education teacher was arrested earlier this month for allegedly selling crystal meth, sparking comparisons between her case and the popular TV show Breaking Bad.
The 40-year-old Clement Middle School teacher, Jennifer Tena Krogman, was booked on drug charges after police were tipped-off that she was preparing to sell-off a small amount of meth from her home, according to the Mail Online.
Police have not disclosed if a Walt Whitman book or another source helped them crack the case. But they have said they suspect Krogman was planning to sell the drug outside California.
The TV series Breaking Bad follows the story of a chemistry teacher — Walter White — who starts selling meth after he is diagnosed with lung cancer. The show has garnered extra attention recently because of its nearing finale.
Unlike White, who is also known as Heisenberg on the show, Krogman is an alleged marijuana smoker, who enjoys drug paraphernalia.
Police knew who she was and tread heavily into Krogman’s house, where they arrested her on possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, being under the influence and suspicion of possession of a controlled substance.
The teacher directed a group of more than 40 dancers at the Redlands middle school and also authored a handbook about eating disorders.
Krogman is currently on paid administrative leave.
