Three men are being quizzed by police after officers pulled over a car and found a rucksack containing snap bags of the drugs inside the boxes.

Breaking Bad is a popular American crime drama television series which follows a struggling high school chemistry teacher who turns to a life of crime, producing and selling crystallized methamphetamine.

Fylde Police posted on its Facebook page: “A vehicle stopped in the St Annes area found the driver being under the influence of drugs....after a search of the vehicle it turns out the driver and occupants were dealing drugs as well. “They at least had a sense of irony by hiding it in Breaking Bad DVD.”
