Police post photo of man wanted on meth charges and makes sees the same joke

US Police are hunting for a man on suspicion of methamphetamine possession.

Todd W. Barrick was on probation following a possession charge, but disappeared before his court date.

Illinois cops circulated Barrick’s mugshot to get the public’s help in tracking down the absconder, and everyone noticed an uncanny resemblance.

With his bald head, thin-rimmed glasses and wiry beard, Barrick is a dead ringer for Walter White, the antihero of smash hit HBO drama Breaking Bad.

Breaking Bad starred Bryan Cranston as White, a high school chemistry teacher who is diagnosed with stage-3 lung cancer.

Unable to pay for his treatment he resorts to drug-dealing, falling in with former student Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul).

Widely regarded as one of the greatest television series of all time, Breaking Bad is a savage indictment of America’s privatised healthcare system and shady lawyers as well as being a gripping thriller.

The show spawned a prequel series – Better Call Saul – as well as a movie continuing Jesse’s story, El Camino.

The show’s legions of fans descended on the Illinois Police Facebook page with "helpful" suggestion about where the cops should direct their search.

One wrote: "Have you tried Albuquerque? Perhaps at Los Pollos Hermanos?”

Another, referring to Walter’s beaten-up car, chipped in: "Well there can't be that many Pontiac Azteks left, especially with cracked windshields, so I suggest you start there!”

Barrick is still at large at time of writing.
