The 911 call audio of Bryan Cranston reporting his car was broken into and the season five “Breaking Bad” script was stolen has been released online, proving Heisenberg really doesn’t falter under pressure.

"They broke my passenger window, and I'm on my way to Albuquerque Audi to turn it in," he said.
TMZ reported the window cost $600 to fix, but the priceless script has yet to surface.
Cranston’s car was broken into in what police have called a random robbery. According to reports, the passenger seat window of Cranston's Audi was smashed and all of his belongings were gone, including the highly protected season five script of the hit AMC television show.
On Friday, Xavier McAfee, 29, was taken into custody on suspicion of one felony count of burglary in Bernalillo County, N.M. Police said he broke into Cranston’s car and stole the actor’s brown shoulder bag that contained an iPad and the script for season five.
"We received info from a confidential informant that he knew of an individual having a script from ‘Breaking Bad’ and wanted to know if anyone wanted to buy an iPad," Bernalillo County Sheriff's Department spokesman Aaron Williamson said on Friday.
"[Cranston] had driven up there and parked his car and walked out to the lookout to take in the views of the city. He was only gone for 10 minutes and realized his car, an Audi, has been broken into.”
Williamson said it appears to have been an isolated incident. McAfee apparently was ratted out after bragging in a local bar that he had stolen the items, including the script.
"We don't know if it was one scene or the whole season," Williamson said. "but I know they are trying to keep tight wraps on this final season and how it is going to end."
The final season of “Breaking Bad” is set to premiere on AMC this summer.
